Zach LaVine is becoming one of the premier shooting guards in the entire NBA. As the Chicago Bulls re-tool and look to make a playoff push this season, he is entering a contract year.
As he finishes out his current four-year, $78 million deal, LaVine is set to become a free agent in 2022. As such, he’s looking for a massive payday and is well deserving of one.
With contract negotiations upcoming, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago has reported that LaVine is leaving Innovate Sports and BDA Sports and is expected to sign with Klutch Sports Group.
For LaVine this is a very strategic move heading into what should be the most lucrative contract of his career to this point. Last season he was an NBA All-Star, averaging 27.4 points, 5.0 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game.
