Bulls Acquire Rights to Mirotic
CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago Bulls have acquired the rights to No. 23 pick Nikola Mirotic from the Minnesota Timberwolves for No. 28 pick Norris Cole of Cleveland State, second-rounder Malcolm Lee of UCLA and cash.

The Bulls announced the move Friday, officially completing a draft-night trade.

A 6-foot-10 forward, Mirotic is under contract with Real Madrid through 2015 and is not expected to join the Bulls next season. The Timberwolves had acquired his rights from Houston before sending him to Chicago. Minnesota also agreed Thursday to a deal sending Cole to the Miami Heat, a person familiar with the situation told the Associated Press.

Lee was first-team, all-Pac-10 and made the conference's all-defensive team as a junior for UCLA.
