The Chicago Bulls are continuing to explore the trade market for Zach LaVine. Both the Los Angeles Lakers and Philadelphia 76ers are expected to have interest in trading for LaVine.

Both the Lakers, who have to wait until January 15 for several players to become trade-eligible, and the Sixers are operating with patience in letting the trade market develop.

LaVine is set to miss three-to-four weeks with inflammation in his right foot. Teams are watching how the Bulls guard recovers from that injury and his eventual return to play before engaging on potential trade talks.
