Nikola Mirotic to make Pelicans debut Saturday vs

While the Bulls were also forced to trade their own 2018 second rounder, which is disappointing, but they also secured the right to swap second round picks with New Orleans in 2021. Originally acquired by the Pelicans in the summer of 2014, Asik has appeared in 189 regular season games for New Orleans, averaging 4.9 points and 5.0 rebounds in 19.9 minutes per contest.

What does the deal mean for fantasy basketball owners? And he wore a look of incredulity when asked if he felt guilty for making Mirotic miss the first 23 games and forever altering his career. Mirotic's shooting ability will make him a natural fit in the Pelicans' up-tempo offense and he'll provide the team with another scoring threat to take attention away from All-Star forward Anthony Davis. In fact, it wouldn't be a surprise if he wound up playing more minutes with the Pelicans than he did with the Bulls.

Now that the Bulls have moved Mirotic, both parties can move on in a way that is best for them.

The Bulls will also find some value in the players that were traded to them, although they likely won't be a part of any long-term plans.

Portis said he "doesn't worry about all the outside things" when asked if he felt vindication that management, in essence, chose him over Mirotic. While Markkanen should stay as a fixture in Chicago's starting lineup, Portis will now have far less competition for playing time off the bench. Kris Dunn has a concussion. For all we know, Chicago may be keeping Nelson around exclusively until Dunn recovers from the concussion he suffered in mid-January. With 31 games left and executive vice president John Paxson emphasizing that players such as Paul Zipser, Cristiano Felicio and Cameron Payne need playing time down the stretch, the rebuild has gotten even more real.
