NBA Trade Rumors: Exploring five contenders that would make the most sense for Zach LaVine if he’s traded. 

It may be time for the Chicago Bulls to make a change.

This is something that many around the NBA already knew, but it might finally be hitting home for the Bulls. According to a recent report, both the Bulls and Zach LaVine are inching closer to the idea of a potential trade. If that does happen, it could open the door for a massive bidding war for LaVine ahead of this year’s NBA Trade Deadline.

With that possibility increasing by every Bulls’ loss, we explore five contenders that would be the best fit for LaVine.

5 Contenders that would make the most sense for Zach LaVine

Oklahoma City Thunder

The Oklahoma City Thunder could be a wildcard when it comes to a potential bidding war for Zach LaVine at the NBA Trade Deadline. The Thunder has the assets to get a deal done and could very much benefit from adding a veteran star to the lineup. If the Thunder are serious about making a jump in the Western Conference standings and solidifying their spot as a playoff team, this could be the type of trade that they need.

If the Thunder believes they’re a star acquisition away from making some serious noise in the West, I don’t think there should be hesitation here. If LaVine and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander could coexist, they could make one of the best backcourt duos in the Western Conference.
