HAHA seems we're both wrong, looks like the Bulls nabbed the rights to Mirotic - great move IMO by the Bulls. Don't think they'll let him play over there long considering his high level of play.
Bulls want 20-year-old first-round pick to mature playing at a high level

The Bulls officially announced the acquisition of Nikola Mirotic's draft rights from the Timberwolves once paperwork cleared the NBA league office Friday evening.
League sources said Mirotic's buyout from Real Madrid stands at roughly 2 million Euros. That number obviously is negotiable, but the plan for now is to keep Mirotic overseas for at least two or three seasons of his five-year deal. Bulls international scout Ivica Dukan has watched Mirotic, 20, for years and management projected him as a lottery pick talent whose long-term contract and buyout situation dropped him in the draft.
