The Chicago Bulls made a splash this summer in free agency, adding the likes of Lonzo Ball, DeMar DeRozan, and Alex Caruso to name a few as the Bulls look to get back into playoff contention.

For Bulls All-Star Zach LaVine, winning is everything. That’s all that matters to the now eight-year veteran — not his upcoming free agency — which he spoke about at Media Day on Monday.

“My plan is tomorrow to get ready for training camp, get ready for the season, and help these guys win just like everybody else,” LaVine said. “I’m not worried about my contract right now. That will be a point in time in the future and my agent and I will sit down and discuss and go from there. But right now, it’s about the Bulls and us getting better tomorrow.”

At this moment, LaVine is set to become an unrestricted free agent next summer and will have a number of suitors if the he and the Bulls fail to come to an agreement. Bulls VP of basketball operations Artunas Karnisovas voiced his confidence and desire in locking up LaVine for years to come.

“We’re committed to Zach, we want him to be in Chicago for a very long period of time. Trade deadline and free agency moves kind of proved that. He has a good relationship with Billy, good relationship with me… We feel really good about Zach and about this season.”
