The executive Vice President of the Chicago Bulls, Arturas Karnisovas, shared his confidence about Zach LaVine re-signing with the franchise once free agency opens.
The All-Star guard is expected to receive a five-year max offer from Chicago, worth around $212M, which he will most likely accept.
For his part, Karnisovas once again made it clear that re-signing Zach LaVine is a top priority for Chicago. “We’ve been very open that we hope Zach is here for a long time. Nothing has changed,” Karnisovas said, via K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports.

LaVine helped the Bulls return to the postseason this season, but Chicago lost to the Milwaukee Bucks in the opening round.
The explosive guard was dealing with a knee injury all season long and underwent surgery a month ago to repair the damage.
