Podcast: Should the Bulls entertain trading Zach LaVine? originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

This Bulls‘ offseason is under a microscope and fans have concerns and questions.

In this edition of the Bulls Talk Pod, Bulls Insider K.C. Johnson and Tony Gill answer your offseason questions and concerns from an Insider’s perspective and a fan’s perspective.

The biggest question poses, should the Bulls consider trading Zach LaVine? Would the outcome would be the same as when they traded Jimmy Butler?

LaVine is a two-time All-Star and is currently headed into the second year of a five-year $215 million deal. He is currently the same age as Butler when he was traded and posted similar stats as Butler, too.

Johnson discussed the league being skeptical the Bulls and LaVine will complete the agreement.

“When we were talking at the start of the episode about the league-wide speculation of the ‘Big Three’ most of the speculation is centered on him (LaVine). There is quite a bit of skepticism throughout the league that the Bulls and LaVine are gonna finish this five-year marriage they entered with that max contract.”

Gill mentions that the Bulls had to sign LaVine regardless if they wanted to trade him or keep him long-term. But the question brought up after he signed is will the Bulls be championship-contending during the length of LaVine’s contract?


“Do you see them contending within this contract? And if you’re honest with yourself, my answer back then was no. And if you asked me today my answer would be no.”

The LaVine conversation starts at the 30:13 mark in the podcast.

Bulls fans, what do you think the Bulls should do?
