Is Mirotic Worth a First Round Draft Pick? Would you trade Ariza/Black/FRP for him?

    Mirotic Stats Per Game:
    17 pts, 7 rebounds, 3 point field goal 47%, PER 23,( salary 12.5M, age 26)
    Ryan Anderson Stats Per Game
    10 pts, 5 rebounds, 3 point field goal 37%, PER 12

    Rumors say Bulls don't plan to eat any more salary (not taken any big contract). Jazz, Pistons and Blazers have their own first round picks (between 10 and 20th picks) in 2018 and 2019. In my opinion, All 3 teams are interested in him and are not willing to pack with first round pick, but 2nd round pick.

    Curious question: Which Rockets Are Worth a Mid-First Round pick excluded big 3?

    No dude. No one is trading first rounders. They are all needed for when Lebron comes to town.

    Players and 2nd rounders sure.

    Or for dumping Anderson for a significant piece.

    THATS IT.

    End of story.

    That is why Morey will never get young talent on the cheap.

    He always trades them for veterans and he never gets close to Top 5 picks.

    He's probably worth a mid-late 1st rounder all things considered (the contract is team friendly with that team option and the money per year is ok), but Ariza is not getting traded anyway, we shouldn't even consider him as an asset at this point.

    Anyway, kinda funny those numbers by Mirotic are basically the same as Ryan numbers when he was playing in New Orleans and they were a 34-48 team.

    As for your last question, not sure who you consider the third of our supposed big 3, both Capela and Gordon are worth at least a mid 1st, but you never trade one them for Mirotic.

    we dont have a 1st rounder to give them... Morey always trades them away to rid of his bad contracts. Ryno probably gonna cost us a ton just to get rid of.

    Whoever pays a first round pick for Mirotic is an outright idiot.

    Miritic getting knocked the freak out doesn't really give me the benefit of the doubt that he'd brings the toughness at that position we need to compete with GSW and the Spurs

    Even though we were considered contenders early on in the season, it was always wishful thinking that the first year of CP3 & Harden without much depth would be a win it all or bust season. Therefore, I firmly believe we are not in win now mode. That will be next year. We were lucky with Mbah, but strapped for cash so Morey will probably do a little cost cutting move at the deadline and try to work his magic in the off-season. So no, he's not worth anything that we can offer. Straight up Ryan for Mirotic perhaps, but that could mess with chemistry and Bulls won't do that.

    Trade Capela to Milwaukee for a first. Send Milwaukee pick and Anderson out for Mirotic and RoLo.

    Unless a star is on the other end, gonna be hard pressed to tell me it's worth moving their 2020 1st round pick.

    Mirotic, Evans, whoever are okay I guess but not moving my 2020 first.
