Zach LaVine News
Chicago Bulls head coach Billy Donovan told the media on Thursday that he expects his starters to play between 24 and 28 minutes in Friday's preseason game against the New Orleans Pelicans. Lonzo Ball saw the most action in the team's first preseason game, logging 26 minutes while DeMar DeRozan (25), Nikola Vucevic (24) and Zach LaVine (24) were close behind. It sounds as if they should all see a slight uptick in Game 2. LaVine was the team's leading scorer in their preseason opener, dropping 25 points on 9-of-14 shooting.
Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine has yet to agree on a contract extension with his current employer. However, with the 26-year-old entering the final year of his most recent deal, the Celtics are a possible favorite to acquire his services in a trade, especially if the Bulls are in danger of not getting anything back for him if he decides to walk. Still, it seems as if Chicago will do everything it takes to keep LaVine on the roster, mainly after bringing in Lonzo Ball, DeMar DeRozan, and Alex Caruso during the offseason. Nonetheless, regardless of where the former UCLA Bruin is playing, he is anticipated to be a prime fantasy producer. His health has been an issue, which is the only thing that has limited his fantasy ceiling over the years.
Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine will not travel with Team USA to Tokyo. LaVine is once again dealing with health and safety protocols, an unfortunate development because he missed 11 contests during the year due to the same issue. Although the 26-year-old is an innocent bystander to contact tracing, it still will cost him a few games during the Summer Olympics. LaVine averaged a career-high 27.4 points during the 2021 campaign and will be looking to lock up a new deal in the Windy City at some point soon. Fantasy managers in category leagues looking for scoring don't have to look much further than him.
Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine is expected to negotiate a contract extension with his current employer this summer. LaVine is entering the final of a four-year deal worth $78 million and will presumably get a substantial raise wherever he signs. The 26-year-old averaged a career-high 27.4 points throughout 58 games during the 2020-21 campaign. He is expected to be a significant contributor moving ahead, although he hasn't played an entire season since 2016 because of various injuries.
