In light of the trade talks of the Chicago Bulls superstar Zach LaVine, it turned out to be a shocker for Zach and the fanbase that the Bulls superstar currently has no market in the league, according to NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski. The two-time NBA All-Star desired trade destinations are the Los Angeles Lakers, Miami Heat, and Philadelphia 76ers.

Adrian Wojnarowski in an appearance talked about Lavine’s trade and said,

There is not a market for Zach LaVine right now in the NBA. That’s not because Chicago has not tried to find it and [they’re] currently trying to find it.

Wojnarowski also talks about how The Chicago Bulls are in pursuit of getting trade offers from teams but across the league teams are looking for LaVine's impact on winning and concerning his contract value. He said,
I think the question for teams is, how much does Zach LaVine impact winning?” Wojnarowski said. “Especially with his salary and a new salary cap where you’re asking yourself, ‘Are we trading for our best player? No. Our second-best player? No. So he’s our third-best player, do we want to pay that kind of money?’

Zach Lavine has been averaging 21 points per game which is said to be his lowest when compared to his numbers with the Minnesota Timberwolves. The two-time NBA all-star has been clocking in the worst stats of his career with a shooting percentage of 34% from the field and 44% from beyond the three-point line. Currently, Lavine is off the basketball floor due to a foot injury. LaVine’s current contract with the Bulls stands at 215 million dollars over five years. With his current numbers and his contract, teams are re-evaluating their decision to consider LaVine.
