Mirotic might be worth the wait for Bulls

What would you say to anybody wondering if you are ready for NBA competition?

I'd tell them I want to be at a higher level before going to the NBA. I had a good year but can make things better. I need to improve physically and develop my skills. I have to be an important player in Europe before thinking about the possibility of the NBA.

What advice does your agent, Igor Crespo, give you?

He told me to think a lot about my decision before taking this step in my career. I choose but have to analyze deeply the situation.

What are your impressions of Derrick Rose?

I haven't met him personally but watched him on TV. He's a great player. He seems to be a humble person, and I've only heard positive things. I have no doubt he's the best guard of the NBA.

Do you know any other Bulls players or members of the organization?

The only one I've ever met is (international scout) Ivica Dukan. I know the players on the team because I follow the NBA on TV.

What kind of player can Bulls fans expect whenever you arrive in Chicago?

I have a good shot. I can take open shots and open the court for my teammates. I can't generate spaces for my teammates by playing one-on-one, so I always give my 100 percent to help the team to get the victory. I want to be a complete player, committed to the team.
