UCLA’s Lee Traded From Bulls To Timberwolves


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. In a separate trade, Minnesota sent Cole to the Miami Heat in a deal that was finalized Friday. Lee was first-team, all-Pac-10 and made the conference’s all-defensive team as a junior for UCLA.
