Although Nikola Mirotic will remain in Spain’s ACB League for at least another year, the buzz around him continues to build.
The Bulls' 2011 draft pick (23rd overall) was named the 2012-13 regular season MVP of the ACB league. At just 22, Mirotic is the youngest player in league history to receive the honor.

During the season, he averaged 12.6 points and 5.5 rebounds leading Madrid to a 30-4 record -- their best record in 40 years. Mirotic shot 50.5 percent from the field and an astounding 43.5 percent from three-point land, not too shabby for a 6-foot-10 forward. He also shot 80.7 percent from the free-throw line.
