All-Star guard Zach LaVine is planning to stay with the Chicago Bulls for the future according to NBC Sports.
The report notes that LaVine and the franchise are “expected to quickly work on a five-year max contract worth roughly $215 million.”
Free agency is set to open tonight, but official dealt can’t be signed until July 6.
LaVine, now 27, is in line for a big contract and he’s no doubt proved himself both on and off the court.
The two-time All-Star averaged 24.4 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 4.5 assists last season with the Bulls, which was his fifth season with the team.
LaVine’s last deal was a four-year $78 million contract signed back in 2018, but now he’s currently an unrestricted free agent.
