John Paxson said in regards to Zach LaVine's restricted free agency, "the market dictates a lot."
This most likely is implying the Bulls will wait until other teams make an offer to LaVine before making one themselves as they can match any offer sheet LaVine signs. The Bulls knew they were getting a tricky situation with LaVine when they traded for him. Coming off of an ACL tear and only having a few months of games is hard to evaluate the long term worth of a player. Paxson added that he knew ups and downs would happen this season for LaVine, and the Bulls seem ready to keep the young guard. The question is how much are they willing to pay.
