Sources: Nikola Mirotic agrees to 2-year, $26 million deal with Bulls

The Chicago Bulls have agreed to a two-year, $26 million contract with restricted free agent forward Nikola Mirotic, sources told ESPN.

The second year of the deal is a team option, which means Mirotic will have the ability to veto any trades this upcoming season. The total guarantee is $12.5 million, but Mirotic also has incentives that can make the total value $27 million, sources said.

The agreement ends a summer-long stalemate between the sides just a day before the start of training camp. The Bulls were incentivized to make a deal as they are currently below the minimum salary floor.

Mirotic, a power forward with range beyond the 3-point line, averaged 10.6 points and 5.5 rebounds with the Bulls last season.

The agreement was first reported by The Vertical.
