The Knicks actually prepare a trade for the star

The Chicago Bulls seem to have decided to trade Zach LaVine.

The Knicks were linked with a trade for Zach LaVine in February and interest has probably not waned since. New York has been impressive in the playoffs, but they clearly need a third star with RJ Barrett not making headway after getting a massive extension last summer.

RJ Barrett and first-round picks could appeal to a Bulls organization looking to shake up the roster. Also, including Barrett in a deal would be a necessity for the business side of the deal to work.
