Chicago Bulls’ superstar Zach LaVine is signing with Klutch Sports, according to K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago. The Chicago superstar has one year remaining in his contract with the Bulls.
LaVine will look to get paid in the next offseason, when he will be an unrestricted free agent. Klutch Sports represents a number of high-profile players, who changed teams after starting their collaboration with the agency.
Namely, Lonzo Ball, who joined the Bulls this offseason, and Ben Simmons, who is considered available for trade. Another notable example is Anthony Davis, who forced his way out of New Orleans three years ago.
The deal with LaVine is coming to a crucial point for Rich Paul and Klutch Sports, as they’re facing a lawsuit from former client Nerlens Noel.
The Bulls will be able to offer a contract worth over $207 million to LaVine for the next five years, when the superstar guard will enter free agency next offseason.
