Is the Chicago Bulls’ belief in Zach LaVine slowly fading?

For two straight years, the Chicago Bulls have failed to live up to their own expectations. Since forming the core of Zach LaVine, DeMar DeRozan, and Nikola Vucevic, they’ve won just a single playoff game. Despite having 10 All-Star appearances between them, they haven’t found success together on the court.

But while DeRozan may be the clutch factor and Vucevic the iron man, LaVine is the highest-paid player on the roster. He should be the guy the Bulls look to moving forward. He is their future. But with all of the trade rumors swirling around the NBA and the Bulls getting caught in the middle of some, could they be losing faith in LaVine?

The Chicago Bulls Central YouTube channel recently discussed whether or not Chicago’s involvement in trade rumors means they don’t believe in LaVine as much anymore.

Should LaVine be the guy Chicago builds around moving forward?
