Report: Nikola Mirotic, Derrick Favors Trade Talks ‘Getting Serious’

Trade talks surrounding a Nikola Mirotic-for-Derrick Favors swap are reportedly “getting serious.”

According to the Salt Lake Tribune‘s Tony Jones, the Jazz have made Favors available, while the Bulls also inquired about a first-round pick.

The Salt Lake Tribune has confirmed that Utah is engaged in talks with the Chicago Bulls on a deal that would bring power forward Nikola Mirotic to Utah.


Jazz forward Derrick Favors has been discussed as a potential piece that would go to Chicago, according to multiple sources.


Other reports Tuesday suggest the Bulls want a first round pick as compensation for Mirotic, something they have inquired the Jazz about.


Nothing is done on either side, but talks are past the preliminary stage and getting serious.
