The Chicago Bulls have matched a four-year, $80 million offer sheet Zach LaVine signed with the Sacramento Kings.

The Bulls had 48 hours to match but did so almost immediately.

LaVine was one of the top free agents on the market.

LaVine averaged 16.7 points and 3.9 rebounds in 24 games for Chicago last season after recovering from a torn ACL. 

The Bulls acquired LaVine from the Minnesota Timberwolves in the 2017 Jimmy Butler trade.

According to Nick Friedell of ESPN, the Bulls were offering just a couple million per year less than LaVine's $19.5 million annual salary in the Sacramento offer sheet.
