Can we convince Mirotic to come back?
He's the kind of big we need, and by all accounts he was a good teammate

1. He can space (36% career 3pt shooter)
2. He can rebound and defend well enough
3. He shouldn't cost anywhere near max money
4. He would fit well next to our bigs

He got paid a lot of money to go back to Europe, 6/$80. I think he was partially looking for stability after moving to so many different teams in such a short time.

He wanted to go home, and he got paid 80 million to do it.

The big we need is in Houston right now, just waiting for Griff to make the call.

Did he get paid that much? I remember thinking it was weird how little he was willing to receive from them in comparison to what I thought he would get here. It's home for him so I get it.

I see some reports saying 80 million but many others are saying between 5.7 and 7.5 million per season. Didn't realize he won MVP and signed an extension so the dream of him returning is definitely dead

Free-agent forward Nikola Mirotic agreed to a deal with FC Barcelona's basketball team Saturday, according to Shams Charania of Stadium and The Athletic.
Andrew Lopez of the Times-Picayune later noted that Mirotic was signing a 6-year contract worth $79.7.


I think it was a 3/27, with the option for 3 additional years that brought it to the 79.7.

re: Can we convince Mirotic to come back?
After digging a little deeper, who knows? I saw one report that linked to a now non existent Andrew Lopez tweet saying it was 6/$80. Wikipedia said it was 3 years 26 million euros which would be about $30 million. I did see mentions where he signed an extension but I also saw reports where he voluntarily took a 70% paycut for COVID.

I thought it was a small contract remembering that I went "wth" when he went back home, but if its 6/80 nvm that's done.

It was 3/26 and thats why everyone remembers it being small.

The initial contract wasn't 79 mil
