Following the Los Angeles Lakers-Chicago Bulls matchup, Zach LaVine was seen exchanging pleasantries with LeBron James. Of course, the incident added fuel to the fire and stirred trade rumors.

Apart from his connection with UCLA, LaVine has often spoken about his desire to represent the California franchise. Earlier in this campaign, the 28-year-old was seen , something that left Laker Nation dreaming.
Gilbert Arenas very recently made claims that the Los Angeles Lakers would acquire Zach LaVine by parting ways with three players – Rui Hachimura, D’Angelo Russell, and Taurean Prince.
