Zach LaVine: ‘Big Fan’ of Lakers

Caught by TMZ cameras outside an LA restaurant, the Bulls’ guard said he’s “always been a big fan” of the Lakers.

On Monday night, Chicago Bulls’ guard Zach LaVine had the unfortunate experience of being ambushed by TMZ cameras while leaving a Los Angeles restaurant.

“I love it here man. Always have,” LaVine responded when asked what he is doing in the Los Angeles area. The two-time All-Star played one year at UCLA and makes his offseason home in Los Angeles.

As offseason rumors circulate, one of the biggest questions remains: where will Zach LaVine play next season? Aside from the Bulls, teams with reported interest include the Portland Trail Blazers and Atlanta Hawks.

However, do the Lakers throw themselves in the mix?

“I’ve always been a big fan,” said LaVine when asked if he had anything to say to Lakers fans.

In a recent interview with David Kaplan, LaVar Ball said he believes LaVine wants to go back home to the West Coast. When asked about LaVar’s comments, LaVine stated that he and Lonzo are boys.

In the video, LaVine responded to the questions nonchalantly and seemed more focused on getting to his vehicle to enjoy the rest of his evening with his wife.

While LaVine may have some affection for the Lakers, the free-agent process will determine the next step in his NBA journey. The Chicago Bulls want to retain Zach LaVine and can make him the best offer in terms of dollars and length. There’s no need to hit the panic button yet.
