The Chicago Bulls are reportedly not looking to trade guard Zach LaVine.

“Nobody is, or should be, untouchable on this roster,” wrote K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports. “And at least for now, word around the league is that the Bulls aren’t looking to move LaVine. Why would they? As you say, he’s playing on an All-Star level and on a value contract.”

LaVine, 25, is having the best season of his career.

He is putting up a career-high 27.0 points, 5.3 assists and 5.2 rebounds per game this season. The Bulls hold a 7-10 record.

However, LaVine is reportedly searching for financial respect from the franchise. He reportedly turned down a three-year, $76 million deal before the season started.

The Bulls haven’t been to the postseason since 2017. They acquired LaVine in a deal from the Minnesota Timberwolves for All-Star Jimmy Butler in the summer of 2017.

LaVine has career averages of 18.1 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.7 assists.
