Bulls match 4-year, US$80M contract offer for Zach LaVine

The Bulls on Sunday formally matched the four-year, $80 million offer sheet LaVine signed with the Sacramento Kings, a move that was expected nearly from the instant the restricted free agent got the offer.

LaVine attended both of the Bulls Summer League games this weekend in Las Vegas along with several teammates, including Bobby Portis, Denzel Valentine and Cameron Payne, and was set to leave Monday for Chicago to complete contract signings and physicals.

And then there's this: LaVine's closest career comparison, according to Basketball-Reference.com is Jerian Grant, the guard the Bulls just traded for a salary dump, because he wasn't considered better than - you should sit down for this - Cameron Payne.

"I am in a really good place", he continued. "Regardless of whatever happened, I am going to put that behind us". "I have to live up to my own potential, and I keep that in the back of my head".

The offer came with an injury clause, which could prove a safety net for any team willing to take a gamble on LaVine's torn ACL, which ended his 2016-17 season with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

"I'm disappointed that I had to get an offer sheet from another team", LaVine said at the time.

The 28-year-old Nishikori is the first Japanese man to reach the quarter-finals at Wimbledon since Shuzo Matsuoka in 1995. McDonald next faces 13th-seeded Milos Raonic or unseeded Austrian Dennis Novak , who is also making his Wimbledon debut.

But we know LaVine doesn't believe they turned the contract in the team's favor.

With his future in the Windy City secured, LaVine is confident that he can make the team competitive again and bring the good days back. I feel 100 percent stable in my knee.

"I go back and critique my game every year". People are going to put their own opinion on things or. they try and judge you, but I came back a year ago [from surgery on a torn anterior cruciate ligament], played in 24 games.

"I knew what I was going to be around, so I'm glad that we finally got to come to a conclusion and both sides are happy with that".

LaVine is one of only six free agents to get deals worth that much so far this summer, joining Chris Paul ($160 million), LeBron James ($153 million), Nikola Jokic ($148 million), Paul George ($137 million) and Aaron Gordon ($80 million).

"So I'm happy; my agency's happy". Who already had two other shooting guards who shot even better than LaVine last season. I want to let them know that I never have any bad will toward Chicago. The way the East is now we have to be going for one of those (playoff) spots.
