Blake Griffin being dealt to the Detroit Pistons officially kicked off the NBA’s trade season as we approach the Feb. 8 deadline and a day later we have another major trade in the Association.

Bulls forward Nikola Mirotic has long been on the trade block and his move by the deadline was expected, so when word came out of Chicago that he was quickly pulled out of practice on Tuesday, sirens went off for many. As it turned out, that was indeed a signal that a trade was coming as NBC Sports Chicago’s Vincent Goodwill reported Mirotic will be heading to New Orleans in exchange for Omer Asik and a first round pick.
