NBA Trade Rumors: 2 Teams Interested in Zach LaVine

There were reports over the weekend that Zach LaVine‘s trade market was pretty barren. But the latest report, from Chicago Bulls insider KC Johnson, is that two teams, the Sacramento Kings and Golden State Warriors, are still interested in possibly trading for the Bulls' high scoring guard/forward. 

From the Warriors standpoint, this makes a ton of sense as the team needs to replace the scoring that they lost when Klay Thompson left for the Dallas Mavericks. 

It’s the Kings, however, that have the high salaried pieces better suited to match up with LaVine in a trade. Sacramento is looking for another big-time scorer to take some of the load off De'Aaron Fox.

A two-time All-Star, LaVine will earn $43 million next season, and his contract runs for two more years after that at a slightly higher annual stipend. 

The LA Lakers were thought to be monitoring LaVine as well recently, so we'll still keep an eye on that. 

LaVine only managed to play 25 games this past season due to injury, but in seven years with Chicago, he has averaged 24.2 points while shooting 38.3% from three-point land.
