2) Most beneficial landing spots for Chicago Bulls SG Zach LaVine: Indiana Pacers

A potential trade that could work for both parties, if the Bulls really wanted to move LaVine this offseason (and the return is well worth it), is with the divisional foe Indiana Pacers. The Bulls and Pacers have gotten used to each other with their current rosters that actually had some level of stability and familiar faces the last couple of years.

The Pacers made a good run during the 2019-20 regular season, but flamed out in the playoffs as a four-seed in a first round sweep at the hands of the upstart five-seed Miami Heat. But the Pacers were also without their lone All-Star selection of the current season, big man Domantas Sabonis, and standout combo guard Victor Oladipo was dealing with a swollen eye that kept him from seeing well for most of the series.

Dipo recently came out and made it know that Indy might not be the long-term home for him. While it seemed like he was making a home in that city, he could be on the move as soon as this offseason. Maybe landing with a bigger market team in the East, like the Bulls, could be a good fit to rejuvenate his career.

And LaVine would also get the opportunity to space the floor alongside two very capable big men, in Sabonis and former Texas Longhorns center Myles Turner, with the Pacers. He would also be playing next to a breakthrough scoring wing in T.J. Warren. This does seem like a good situation for LaVine, and a trade situation that could work out well for both sides.
