The 24-year-old guard is in his third season with the Bulls after they acquired him in the trade that sent Jimmy Butler to Minnesota. He only played in 24 games in his first season with the team as he was recovering from a torn ACL. LaVine played in 63 games last season and averaged a career-high 23.7 points per game.
This season, LaVine is averaging 24.9 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.4 steals per game. He is in the second season of a four-year, $78 million deal.
