    Getty Zach LaVine #8 of the Chicago Bulls plays The Chicago Bulls have placed all of their future eggs in the Zach LaVine basket after signing the two-time All-Star to a five-year, $215 million contract this offseason. It’s a deal that, at one point, seemed unlikely to get done as it is historic for the franchise. LaVine’s deal is the first to exceed even $100 million let alone the $200 million barrier. That makes it the richest in Bulls history, topping that of Derrick Rose and Michael Jordan’s on-court earnings from his entire Bulls tenure. And, as we have learned as the details around the language in the deal as well as from his head coach, there is a lot of faith in LaVine. Not only in the player that he has become. But also of what he can still do in the future.LaVine’s Long-Term LeverageNews of LaVine’s deal quickly reached his teammates who celebrated as teammates do. LaVine announced the deal with a picture of himself enjoying a cigar and, later, a Bulls-themed cake decorated with “LaVine...

    CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Bulls made it clear re-signing Zach LaVine and locking in the two-time All-Star and Olympic gold medalist for years to come was their top offseason priority. It is officially a done deal. The Bulls announced Thursday they re-signed LaVine, after the high-flying guard agreed to a five-year max contract worth about $215 million last week. LaVine had said he wanted to explore the market as an unrestricted free agent for the first time after eight seasons in the NBA and five with the Bulls. If he went shopping, it was a quick trip.

Word of LaVine’s new deal quickly spread. Local media quickly confirmed as NBC Sports Chicago’s K.C. Johnson joined the Chicago Sun-Times’ Joe Cowley and The Athletic’s Darnell Mayberry corroborating Charania’s report. NBA Twitter was as quick to react. Even more exciting, his LaVine’s Bulls teammates were not shy about sharing their sentiments on the unrestricted free agent’s return.Bulls Teammates Happy for LaVineCharania reported that there would be no answer from LaVine on the first day of free agency, and there was not as the negotiating period came and went without any other word.

    Zach LaVine is staying in Chicago. Same goes for Jusuf Nurkic in Portland. Day 2 of NBA free agency on Friday brought another max deal — this time, going to LaVine, who secured the richest contract in Bulls history when he agreed to a $215 million, five-year contract. LaVine technically was a free agent, for about 18 hours. Klutch Sports, which represents LaVine, made the announcement of the max agreement, with the Bulls able to offer the Olympic gold medalist and two-time All-Star $56 million more than any other club could this summer. Nurkic got by far the biggest payday of his career, agreeing to a four-year, $70 million contract with Portland. The center just completed his eighth NBA season, the last six of those coming with the Trail Blazers, for whom he averaged 15 points and 11.1 rebounds this past season. Mitchell Robinson is another big man not moving elsewhere, agreeing Friday to a $60 million, four-year contract to remain with the New York Knicks. There are some players who will be changing addresses. Danilo Gallinari, according to a...
    The Chicago Bulls have held on to Zach LaVine. But their work isn’t done and there are plenty more holes to fill on this roster. The Chicago Bulls landed the biggest prize of the offseason so far, retaining Zach LaVine to a five-year deal worth $215.2 million. LaVine is coming off a season in which he averaged 24.4 points, 4.6 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game on a 60.5 true shooting percentage. LaVine offensive dynamism as a hyper-efficient off-ball threat and complementary creator helped the Chicago Bulls reach the playoffs for the first time in five seasons. However, they ran into a buzzsaw in the first round, getting eliminated by the Milwaukee Bucks in five games. Keeping LaVine is huge for the Bulls but their roster has plenty of holes, even with hopefully healthy Lonzo Ball and Patrick Williams returning. The time for celebrating LaVine’s big deal is later, right now there is more work to do.What other moves do the Bulls need to make after re-signing Zach LaVine?The Bulls also added Andre Drummond on a two-year deal but still...
    Will Zach LaVine remain in Chicago next season? After weeks of wondering and worrying, Bulls fans finally are close to receiving an answer as NBA free agency officially opens Thursday evening. Teams may begin negotiating with players and their agents at 5 p.m. CDT, though free agents cannot sign new deals until July 7. This is LaVine’s first offseason as an unrestricted free agent, which allows the two-time All-Star shooting guard to pursue a deal with any team. It’s also his first opportunity to seek a five-year maximum contract from the Bulls, which could top out at $215 million according to an ESPN report of a 10% salary-cap increase for next season. LaVine declined during his exit interview with media in April to make a hard commitment to re-signing with the Bulls, deferring all questions about his future to his agent. But he made it clear at the end of the season that he knows his worth — and won’t compromise to receive it. “You get paid what you’re valued at and I see myself as a top guy in...
    Getty Zach LaVine #8 of the Chicago Bulls reacts The Chicago Bulls are playing a dangerous game with star free agent Zach LaVine, per a new report from The Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor. LaVine is viewed as one of four top-tier free agents by The Athletic’s John Hollinger. LaVine is the fourth and final member of that tier. But he is the only one of the four who is unrestricted – the other three all hold player options. ESPN 1000’s David Kaplan reported that some within the organization questioned whether or not LaVine had the requisite “dog mentality” to warrant such an investment. The Chicago Sun-Times’ Joe Cowley reported the Bulls would “take the leap of faith” And yet, there still appears to be some consternation in the Bulls front office over his value.A Few Dollars ShortO’Connor was appearing on “The Bill Simmons Podcast” when he dropped a mini-bombshell on unsuspecting Bulls fans. Despite LaVine being one of the premier free agents available, the Bulls initially offered LaVine less than a full max contract. Read More From Heavy Turn...
    Getty Zach LaVine #8 and DeMar DeRozan #11 of the Chicago Bulls celebrate A lot has been made of what the Chicago Bulls will do this offseason. But one insider believes they have already made what is easily their most important decision of the summer: whether or not to extend a max contract offer to star free agent, Zach LaVine. LaVine’s free agency has been the elephant in the room since before last season. The rumor mill has been in high gear since the season’s end. There is a new potential destination seemingly every day. According to the Chicago Sun-Times’ Joe Cowley, any decision over whether or not the two-time All-Star will be in Chicago next season will depend on the player. The organization is ready to commit.Showing LaVine RespectThere is something to be said for this coming from Cowley, who has covered the team since the Derrick Rose days. He has seen the organization fumble Rose’s situation as well as prematurely move off of Jimmy Butler to avoid paying him. Butler just dropped a career-high 47 points...
    Getty Images Zach LaVine The Chicago Bulls’ season came to an end in disappointing fashion on Wednesday night in a 116-100 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. The Bucks finished off the series 4-1, winning the last three games of the series by an average of 23.33 points per game. While it’s a disappointing end to the season for the Bulls, it’s important to acknowledge the major improvements the team made this season. Chicago finished the season with a record of 46-36 after finishing the 2021 season 31-41. When the Bulls were healthy this season they were among the top teams in the NBA. Chicago was 27-11 in mid-January when the injury bug started with injuries to Lonzo Ball, Alex Caruso, and Derrick Jones Jr. The Bulls still managed to run their record to 39-21, but after that being shorthanded really took its toll on the team as they closed the season 7-15 over the last 22 games.Sleepless NightsThe Bulls’ improvements this season were largely influenced by their aggressive offseason last year. Landing DeMar DeRozan, Ayo Dosunmu, Ball, and...
    Getty Zach LaVine #8 of the Chicago Bulls takes a three point shot This summer is going to be significant to the Chicago Bulls and star guard Zach LaVine, an unrestricted free agent this summer. One eastern conference executive tells Heavy’s Sean Deveney that this decision is all but made. “There is no way they consider letting him walk” Simple enough, right? But the executive did not stop there, citing several key factors that will “make the whole thing easier” for both sides. “He’s probably not going to make All-NBA because he took a backseat to DeMar DeRozan and that was unselfish because it will cost him money. He won’t get the supermax….the Bulls won’t have to worry about going too high to overpay him.” It isn’t just about the Bulls’ comfort, though, as the executive points out. “He’s still one of their anchor guys. There is no way they consider letting him walk, and he does not want to walk.”Acts of SacrificeLaVine made his first All-Star team a season ago after putting up 27.4 points, 5.0 rebounds,...
    Getty Zach LaVine, Bulls It is not exactly an imposing group of NBA free agents hitting the market next summer, but in a top-heavy group, it’s nice to know you’ve got first dibs at the best one. And as The Athletic front-office guru John Hollinger sees it, that’s the position the Bulls are in with guard Zach LaVine. While it’s not a deep group of free agents, it is worth noting that the bunch does include LeBron James, James Harden and Kyrie Irving. It might seem a surprise to have LaVine ahead of those guys, but consider that he is only 26, is coming off an All-Star year and is currently averaging 25.9 points, 5.4 rebounds and 3.7 assists this season for the 12-6 Bulls.

    Getty Zach LaVine Zach LaVine is after what he believes he deserves. The 26-year-old, coming off his first All-Star appearance and Olympic Games, is entering the final year of his current contract with the Chicago Bulls. Expectations are mounting, both internally and externally. LaVine is looking for “respect” from the franchise in his next deal. “I just want my respect,” LaVine said during the Summer Olympics in Tokyo, per NBC Sports. “I think that’s the main thing. I outplayed my [current] contract, I’ve been very loyal to Chicago, I like Chicago. I just want my respect. If it’s now, later, it’s something that we gotta work out internally and we’ll go from there.” LaVine has earned Chicago’s respect, but whether loyalty will be returned is a conversation he is content postponing for another day. “I wouldn’t even be worried about my contract situation,” LaVine said after pouring in 23 of his points in the second half, per the Chicago Sun-Times. “I’m worried about Game 1 and seeing where it goes from there. When that time comes, we’ll see...
    Father of 3 Tweets Inspiring and Heartbreaking Farewell Message After Long Battle with Cancer Mortgage and real estate news this week: Another rate dip and a housing affordability update © Provided by CBS Sports Zach LaVine is signing with Klutch Sports, according to K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago. LaVine had previously been represented by Bill Duffy. The Chicago Bulls star is under contract for only one more year before hitting unrestricted free agency next offseason, and LaVine has made it clear that he expects to get paid.  "I just want my respect," LaVine said during an Olympic media session. "I think that's the main thing. I outplayed my [current] contract, I've been very loyal to Chicago, I like Chicago. I just want my respect. If it's now, later, it's something that we gotta work out internally and we'll go from there." The Bulls technically could still give LaVine an extension this offseason, but it would be well below his market value. Typical veteran extensions can offer only a 20 percent raise on the last year of the existing deal....
    Getty Thaddeus Young The Chicago Bulls‘ coaching staff and perhaps most importantly, star Zach LaVine loves Thaddeus Young. However, according to Dan Favale of Bleacher Report the Bulls will likely have to part ways with the beloved and still very valuable veteran if they’re going to fill their void at point guard. Favale engineered a trade between the Bulls and the Brooklyn Nets that would land Chicago Spencer Dinwiddie in a sign-and-trade deal for Young and a 2022 second-round pick.Favale Says The Bulls are in Win-Now ModeThe B/R writer implied there is a sense of urgency within the Bulls’ front office. He wrote: Rival teams should view the Bulls as ripe for some selling. They missed the play-in tournament after surrendering a small ransom to get Nikola Vucevic, and Zach LaVine’s pending free agency puts them in a precarious position. Chicago, on the other hand, must act like a buyer if it intends to keep LaVine beyond this season. And that’s presumably the plan, otherwise why make the Vooch trade at all? Favale is correct. LaVine’s contract status...
    Getty Ben Simmons and Zach LaVine face off during an October game in 2018. Even with the postseason still in play, the NBA offseason is active with reporting and trade rumors, and the Chicago Bulls have found themselves in the middle of it all. And the latest speculation surrounding Ben Simmons and the Philadelphia 76ers is no exception. The former first overall pick is the subject of all trade rumors after he and his team fell out in Game Seven to the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday night. Simmons shot 25-of-73 from the free-throw line this postseason, putting the 76ers in complexing crunch-time situations, which ultimately saw them eliminated prematurely. Now, the obvious answer for Philadelphia seems to be cashing in on the 24-year old, who’s under contract through 2025. One former NBA executive thinks the Chicago Bulls are the perfect trade partner.

    Getty Zach LaVine puts up a three-point shot in a March 1 game against the Denver Nuggets. After landing Nikola Vucevic at this year’s trade deadline, the Chicago Bulls are expected to be huge players in both free agency and the trade market this offseason. With the aforementioned big man, rookie Patrick Williams, and Zach LaVine all under the United Center roof, there’s an increased pressure to continue building around those centerpieces and return to the playoffs in 2022. But how and what those series of moves look like may revolve entirely around the Bulls’ All-Star guard. LaVine’s entering the last year of the four-year/$80-million contract he signed in 2018, meaning he’s due for an extension, and Chicago is expected to engage the 26-year old on talks this offseason as soon as they are allowed. Whether or not he’ll be receptive in those talks remain unclear, making Zach LaVine’s pending extension with the Chicago Bulls one of the more must-watch situations around the entire NBA.

    Getty Zach LaVine The Chicago Bulls’ disappointing regular season is over, and now it is time to focus on improving the team in the offseason. Zach LaVine’s contract situation is perhaps the primary concern. During LaVine’s final media session of the season, he made it clear, he expects to be compensated for what he has accomplished professionally.

    Getty Zach LaVine guards De'Aaron Fox in a February 20 game against the Sacramento Kings. If nothing else, the Chicago Bulls stretch without Zach LaVine has proved his value to this team, and quieted any and all question as to whether or not they were better without him. But the All-Star’s willingness to remain in the Windy City beyond next season remains unclear. Bleacher Report’s A. Sherrod Blakely reported earlier this month that the expectation is LaVine will bypass extension talk, making him a free agent in 2022: That’s why rival executives anticipate the Bulls will try to lock up LaVine with a contract extension (he will make $19.5 million this season and next) but know he’ll likely let his deal lapse, become an unrestricted free agent and sign what will be a more lucrative multiyear max pact. Averaging 27.5 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 5.1 assists per game, the 26-year old guard will undoubtedly attract both trade suitors and teams with an interest in signing him outright over the next 18 months. It’s up to the Chicago front...

    According to one report, many around the NBA expect Zach LaVine to turn down a contract extension with the Chicago Bulls. Zach LaVine’s focus coming into the 2020-21 NBA season was getting the Chicago Bulls to the playoffs. They’re technically on the precipice, sitting in the final play-in spot in 10th place in the Eastern Conference standings, but it’s hardly felt like a playoff-caliber season for the 22-32 Bulls. Convincing him that this franchise is capable of building a contender in the near future is key for Chicago, but this front office will have to do so quickly to prevent him from hitting the free agency market in 2022. According to Bleacher Report’s A. Sherrod Blakely, rival executives round the league believe the Bulls will try and lock LaVine down with a contract extension, but they also expect the first-time All-Star to turn down that offer in favor of unrestricted free agency in 2022. After the final year and $19.5 million of his contract for 2021-22, he’ll be able to command a more lucrative, multiyear deal, and at that point,...
