The Chicago Bulls will match the Sacramento Kings’ four-year, $80 million offer sheet to restricted free agent Zach LaVine, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
LaVine, 23, was one of the top shooting guards on the market and received plenty of interest for potential offer sheets. He was a centerpiece of the Bulls’ acquisitions when they traded Jimmy Butler to the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2017.
LaVine averaged 16.7 points and 3.9 rebounds in 24 games for Chicago last season after recovering from a torn ACL. In his four NBA seasons, LaVine has emerged as a potent scorer when healthy, averaging a career-high 18.9 points in 2016-17.
LaVine was the No. 13 overall pick out of UCLA in the 2014 NBA draft.
