2. Zach LaVine

After seven seasons in the Windy City, it may be time for the Bulls to put an end to the Zach LaVine era. Playing just 25 games this season due to injury, LaVine's usefulness in Chicago appears to be wearing thin.

In the grand scheme of things, it is not likely that Zach will ever be the best player on a championship-winning team, or even the second-best player on a title team. There was virtually no chance LaVine was going to lead Chicago to the promised land even if he had been able to remain on the floor for the entire season this year.

While he is a sensational offensive talent, Zach's defense is routinely lacking and he is not the type of player that is versatile enough to be plugged and placed in a variety of lineups. Considering his current value and the massive contract he signed with the Bulls in 2022, it is best that Chicago consider their options and look at offloading Zach to the highest bidder.

He has already been named in numerous trade rumors and discussions over the last few seasons, and the Bulls would likely be happy to just put an end to the drama. There is a very small chance LaVine is still a Bull come training camp.
