The NBA roster Chicago Bulls star Zach LaVine will join for the 2022-2023 isn’t final, but Bleacher Report is counting out San Antonio with a diss. The popular free agent is expected to resign with the Bulls after weeks of rumors and speculation on where he might end up, some of which included Spurs fans holding out hope of seeing him in a San Antonio jersey. 

Bleacher Report’s Jake Fischer wrote about the progression of LaVine’s free agency in a Tuesday column. In it, he mentioned LaVine’s goal of being a centerpiece. He writes that San Antonio could give that playmaking power to him, but the “Spurs are considered far off from the postseason environment LaVine prefers.” 

As Joshua Paredes of Air Alamo pointed out, the “sucker punch” seems out of touch considering this postseason was the first LaVine had seen in eight years. Fans also noted the Bulls didn’t do too hot in the playoffs, winning only one game more than the Spurs in the post, and being eliminated in the first round by the Milwaukee Bucks.  

“Bulls flamed out with a quick first-round exit – let’s not pretend they’re truly leaps & bounds ahead of us,” a response by Twitter user @A_Garrr says to Paredes. 

“So he prefers the postseason environment where he got first rounded with 32 year old DeRozan and 31 year old Vucevic,” Another response, by @deuceify, says. 

As the free-agency negotiation period looms, opening on June 30, its seems as if every team has “rumblings” that LaVine is considering different pastures, but Fischer says his sources are telling him he’s staying put.
