LaVine said to be on radar of several teams

Restarted free agent Zach LaVine is a player of interest to several teams, according to reports.

LaVine, 23, is said to be on the radar of the Atlanta Hawks, according to Vincent Goodwill of NBC SportsChicago.

Goodwill explained his thinking about LaVine’s restricted free agency.

The former NBA slam-dunk champion is also drawing interest from the Sacramento Kings, according to Kevin O’Connor of The Ringer.

Nick Friedell of ESPN mentioned what kind of contract LaVine might command.

Acquired by the Bulls last summer from the Minnesota Timberwolves in the Jimmy Butler trade, LaVine played in 24 games last season after missing majority of the year recovering from left ACL surgery. The high-flyer averaged 16.7 points, 3.9 rebounds and 3.0 assists, shooting 38.3 percent from the field and 34.1 percent from 3-point range.

The Bulls have consistently said they want to retain LaVine, but the price will matter. According to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune, Chicago would prefer to re-sign LaVine in the $14 to $16 million range annually.
