Is Zach LaVine an inevitable trade target for the 76ers?

Mentioned numerous times as a surefire trade candidate this offseason, Zach LaVine is indeed a near-lock to be shipped out of Chicago as soon as possible. The two-time All-Star’s season was cut short due to surgery, which was also the primary reason behind him not switching clubs midway through the season.

LaVine’s decline and injury issues this season couldn’t come at a worse time for his staying power in Windy City. The Bulls have found success without him with Coby White playing well and being their break out star, and this season could be their coup de grace before an inevitable fire sale this offseason.

Having already been linked to the 76ers in the past, Philly’s brass could be in for a hell of a bargain with LaVine in a hypothetical trade. The Bulls aren’t in a position of leverage, and they would probably be satisfied with a package built around considerable draft ammo in return.

While his efficiency took a hit this season, LaVine is still a prototypical modern two-guard who can score at a high volume from anywhere on the court. He’s an adept one-on-one defender when engaged, and his secondary playmaking is valuable for a team in want of more variance in its scoring attack.
