The New York Knicks have once again been exploring potential trades for highly ranked players, and Zach LaVine is reportedly one name on their list.
The Knicks recently reached out to the Chicago Bulls to discuss a potential trade, according to The Athletic’s Fred Katz. What New York has determined is that the asking price for LaVine is “gargantuan” and the two sides have never made any real progress toward a settlement.
LaVine signed a 5-year, $215 million extension with the Bulls last summer. The two-time All-Star is coming off another productive season in which he averaged 24.8 points per game, but his contract is likely one reason teams like the Knicks aren’t giving up a huge tally for the 28-year-old.
