Knicks, Zach LaVine would not be the target of a potential blockbuster trade with the Bulls

A top New York Knicks insider believes that if the team wanted to make an impactful trade with the Chicago Bulls before the February trade deadline, Zach LaVine would not be the player targeted by the organization, as some may assume.

SNY New York Knicks insider Ian Begley doesn’t see a fit for the Knicks, despite rumors of trade talks right before last season’s deadline. “They talked in Chicago last year – a couple of months before the deadline – about LaVine and exchanged ideas. But obviously, nothing panned out,” Begley told Sportsnaut. “I think the Knicks could have traded him in the offseason if they wanted to put together a strong offer. Now, I don’t know. I feel like, with the way RJ Barrett is playing and how the group is together, I have a hard time seeing them being aggressive for Zach LaVine.
