Nikola Mirotic proudly displays his new jersey.
Mirotic said he'll fly back to Madrid tomorrow and practice in Montenegro this summer. He'll return to Chicago next month.
Mirotic on biggest challenge he'll face: "I know it's going to be hard, especially in the beginning. But I strongly believe I'm ready."
Thibs: "There are a lot of international players in our league & they've done quite well. I don't think it will be a difficult transition."
Thibodeau laughed when asked how well he speaks Spanish. But he notes he went through a similar situation in Houston with Yao Ming.
Mirotic on coming to the Bulls: "I felt that the right moment was now both for me personally and to improve more over here."
Thibodeau on Mirotic: "We love the characteristics he has, his intelligence and his drive. Each year, he's improved significantly."
Tom Thibodeau and Gar Forman join Nikola Mirotic and his agent at Mirotic's introductory press conference.
Mirotic: "It's a pleasure to have this opportunity. ... I've always dreamed about that moment of being here and playing with them."
Mirotic, who speaks some English but is still learning the language, said he's excited about Gasol also joining the Bulls.
Forman: Mirotic the best young player (previously) not in NBA. "He's a big that's extremely skilled, a spacing four that shots the three."
GM Gar Forman: Bulls knew they'd have to remain patient when drafting Mirotic in 2011. They also knew it would be worth the wait.
