Zach LaVine Chicago Bulls

Zach LaVine would love to stay in Chicago, especially after the Bulls acquired All-Star center Nikola Vucevic at the trade deadline Thursday.

Asked Friday about the potential of re-signing with the Chicago franchise, the explosive superstar guard did not hesitate.

“I want to stay in Chicago. I haven’t had anything of wanting to leave. When that time comes, obviously I’ll try to do the best I can to stay here,” LaVine told reporters. “Adding someone like [Vucevic] and being more attractive in the free-agent market to bring more players here is always a bonus for any player.”

The Bulls were really active during the deadline adding Vucevic, Troy Brown and Moe Wagner in their team as they’re trying to build a strong core around LaVine.

LaVine’s contract is expiring next year, however the addition of Vucevic provide the Bulls with more leverage as they will try to keep the All-Star guard in the team after the end of the next season.
