Thad Young is considered the "most readily available" player on the Chicago Bulls roster, sources told K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports.

Sources cite a combination of Young's unhappiness with his role last season, plus a team-friendly contract that features a partial guarantee for the 2021-22 season.

The news comes after reports that the Knicks and Nets were both monitoring the potential availability of Zach LaVine.

Johnson adds that while LaVine is eligible for a contract extension in October, the uncertainty surrounding the team's future may dampen negotiations.
