Mirotic set to play for Pelicans Saturday

Nikola Mirotic will play for the New Orleans Pelicans after he clears his physical from team doctors. He was posting a career-high as a Bull this season, averaging 16.8 points, 6.4 rebounds. While he was a Chicago Bull, he averaged about 2.8 3’s made a game, which will help the Pelicans out since their superstar Demarcus Cousins went down to a sudden ruptured achilles. Mirotic is expected to help this team stay in a close-knit Western Conference playoff race. Luckily, the Pelicans agreed to guarantee Mirotic’s $12.5M salary for the 2018-2019 so this move wasn’t just a temporary fix or one season rental.
