On Thursday, the Chicago Bulls wasted no time in looking to upgrade their roster, as they traded guard Alex Caruso for 21-year-old forward Josh Giddey.

But they still have more decisions to make when it comes to at least a couple of their key players.

Guard Zach LaVine has seen his name come up in trade rumors for at least the last several months, and according to Joe Cowley, he has a “growing” trade market right now, per NBACentral.

LaVine is a two-time All-Star and a potent scoring threat, but some have regarded him as the type of player whose scoring output is nothing more than flash and empty calories.

He averaged 19.5 points a game on 45.2 percent shooting from the field and 34.9 percent from 3-point range, but those numbers were down from 24.8 points a game on 48.5 percent overall shooting and 37.5 percent from downtown last season.

He has also been injury-prone over the years — he appeared in just 25 games this season, and he has appeared in at least 70 games just three times in his ten seasons in the NBA.

Still, there should be at least a few teams that will be interested in him, given his ability to score and throw down highlight dunks — he won the Slam Dunk Contest two straight times in 2015 and 2016.

LaVine has three years left on his current contract, and he will be owed well over $40 million a year on his current deal.

Meanwhile, forward DeMar DeRozan, a six-time All-Star, is about to become a free agent, and the Bulls need to decide what to do with him.
