As trade rumors continue to surround Zach LaVine, the Chicago Bulls guard may have growing interest in playing for one team in particular.

The Sacramento Kings could be trying to add more offense, which could lead them to have interest in trading for LaVine. LaVine himself would be “very amenable” to a trade to the Kings, according to Sam Amick of The Athletic, where he would become De’Aaron Fox’s backcourt partner.

Any trade would be complicated by LaVine’s significant contract and asking price. Keegan Murray is likely untouchable in LaVine trade talks, for instance.

LaVine and the Bulls certainly appear to be headed for a parting of ways. The guard is rumored to be very interested in another Western Conference team as well, but the size of his contract is a significant stumbling block for a lot of teams.

LaVine is averaging 21 points per game on the season in 18 games. He has not played since Nov. 28 due to right foot inflammation.
