The partnership between Zach LaVine and the Chicago Bulls may be nearing its end. The two-time All-Star will be shopped around the league as the Bulls look to enter a new direction with the team.

Rumors of the Bulls finally blowing their roster up have circulated the league for years. The Athletic reported the news surrounding the Bulls’ openness to trading their star today. LaVine is averaging 21.9 points per game to start the season.

There will be a variety of different teams that will inevitably be in the running to add LaVine. Teams such as the Los Angeles Lakers, Philadelphia 76ers, and Miami Heat may be a few of the teams to express interest.

The 28-year-old has the ability to add a scoring punch to any team that he joins. His ability to get a basket from anywhere along with his athleticism will make him heavily coveted around the association.

This very well could be a sign of things to come in Chicago. However, it will be interesting to see if they blow their entire roster up or just look to retool their team. The Bulls have many different pieces that they could move.

DeMar DeRozan is a veteran forward who is averaging 21.2 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 4.5 assists to start the year. DeRozan is a solidified veteran who can increase a team’s title chances.

Meanwhile, Alex Caruso would be a premier defender to add to a contending team. The All-Defensive guard can guard multiple positions at a high level. However, while the direction of the Bulls is not quite known, they can make multiple different moves to shake up their team.
