Could the New York Knicks add slam dunk star Zach LaVine via trade? Here’s a look at New York’s best offer for the Bulls star.


The New York Knicks seem to have a clear plan and direction as their franchise moves forward. While it appeared the plan was to tank for another high draft pick, new coach Tom Thibodeau has the team off to a surprising start.

New York is playing with energy and excitement. If they can keep it up over the next several months, perhaps they become a team where superstars finally want to play. Madison Square Garden might be empty of fans right now, but soon enough, it will be an elite destination to watch basketball again.

Fans and analysts have speculated about ways the team could utilize free agency and/or the trade market to accelerate their timeline and add more immediate star power to the roster.

As the team considers their options, one name from another struggling major market may be on the trade block: Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine. The slam dunk superstar has been involved in rumors over the past few seasons.

Let’s take a look at what a move to send LaVine to New York could look like.
