Zach LaVine, the All-Star shooting guard for the Chicago Bulls, may be eyeing a potential move to the San Antonio Spurs, according to a report. LaVine is said to be interested in pairing with rookie sensation Victor Wembanyama and reuniting with head coach Gregg Popovich, with whom he had a successful stint on the 2020 Team USA squad that won a gold medal in Tokyo. This report comes from Yahoo! Sports’ Jake Fisher, who suggests that the allure of playing alongside Wembanyama and working with Popovich again makes San Antonio an attractive option for LaVine.
The Spurs, who currently have ample salary cap space, as well as a surplus of draft picks and young players, could make a serious trade offer to the Bulls if they decide to part ways with LaVine. The 28-year-old guard would not only bring a veteran presence to the roster but also provide an additional offensive weapon for the team. LaVine’s familiarity with Popovich’s coaching style and expectations would likely allow him to seamlessly fit into the Spurs’ system.
LaVine is currently averaging 21.7 points and 4.9 rebounds per game for the Bulls. In addition to the Spurs, other teams reportedly on his list of potential landing spots include the Los Angeles Lakers, Miami Heat, and Philadelphia 76ers. It remains to be seen how the trade market will develop and whether LaVine will ultimately be moved by the Bulls.
As always, the Spurs’ fan base is eagerly following these developments and speculating about the potential acquisition of LaVine.
