With the 2022 NBA postseason Conference Finals right around the corner, we are getting closer to knowing who will become champions this season. On the other hand, the teams that have already been eliminated from the playoffs or failed to qualify for it are already planning how to improve next season.
Evidently, there are many players that are on the target list of the franchises around the NBA. One such player is the Chicago Bulls superstar Zach LaVine. The Bulls star is entering free agency this offseason and could become a very valuable asset for any team.
Earlier, LaVine also revealed that he going to the offseason with an open mind. This clearly means that he is unsure about re-signing with the Bulls and could leave if the right opportunity comes knocking.
The Los Angeles Lakers have been identified as one of the favorites to trade for LaVine, if the Bulls superstar decides to go for a sign and trade. On that note, NBA analyst Jay Williams has suggested a hypothetical 3-team trade idea that would send LaVine to the Lakers.
Well, the answer to who says no is the Chicago Bulls. They finally have a good core of Zach LaVine, DeMar DeRozan, and Lonzo Ball. The three stars have played just one season together and at least qualified for the playoffs in the loaded East.
Once they hone their chemistry, they could go even further in the playoffs. But in case LaVine decides to leave regardless, then this proposed trade will be beneficial to all teams.
The Knicks are unhappy with Julius Randle, so they are searching for teams that can trade for him. Meanwhile, the Lakers failed to create the superteam they promised fans after adding Westbrook to the roster.
But will the Bulls give up on their newfound stars? We will get a much better idea of it soon.
