It feels like LaVine is always in trade rumors, but a deal may finally happen this summer. K.C. Johnson reported the Bulls’ asking price dropped significantly and his season-ending ankle injury may have been the final straw.

It allowed Coby White to emerge. If the Bulls bring back DeRozan and keep Vucevic, someone will have to take a lesser role. All four are offense-first players, which limits their value. LaVine is likely the odd man out, and the Bulls should trade him for the best possible return this summer.

The 29-year-old is an elite scorer, but his track record for winning speaks for itself. LaVine has played a decade in the NBA, and his team has only made the playoffs once. Even then, it was a first-round exit with just a single victory in the series.

The Chicago Bulls must make trades this summer, and Zach LaVine is the most likely to be moved. It is long past time for a rebuild in the Windy City, but president of basketball operations Arturas Karnisovas thinks otherwise. Does the franchise finally shake things up and return to the playoffs? If not, it may be the final straw for Karnisovas and the Bulls' current front office, so stay tuned.
