CHICAGO — The Chicago Bulls say they have re-signed forward Nikola Mirotic.

The Bulls did not announce the terms Tuesday, though a person familiar with the situation said two days earlier that two-year deal could pay as much as $27 million. The club holds an option for the second season.

The 6-foot-10 Mirotic averaged 10.6 points last season. He has scored 10.8 per game over three seasons.
