Zach LaVine's camp not interested in NYC move

As news buzzed Tuesday about the increased likelihood of Zach LaVine being traded, the Knicks inevitably were thrown into the speculation pool because that’s the nature of a big-market team with assets and needs. But there are multiple reasons a LaVine-to-Knicks deal won’t happen. A source reiterated to The Post this week that LaVine’s camp would prefer not to go to Leon Rose’s squad.

“I’ve had this news for three years. It’s nothing new to me. Regular Wednesday.’’ – LaVine on if he felt the distraction of the trade talk in the loss to the Magic. – 11:24 PM

Final: Magic 96, Bulls 94.
Zach LaVine hit a game-tying 3 in the final 10 seconds. But Paolo Banchero answered by burying the game-winner in the lane.

How about that, Zach LaVine hits consecutive 3-pointers and #Bulls have tied Orlando 94-94 with 7.5 seconds left. Now watch out for Jalen Suggs. – 10:28 PM
Dan Savage @Dan_Savage
Zach LaVine knocks down a game-tying 3-pointer with 7.5 seconds left.
It’ll be Magic ball after the timeout.

Zach LaVine finally, finally gets a rim finish to fall in transition and the Bulls pull within six points.
81-75 with 6:17 remaining. – 10:02 PM
KC Johnson @KCJHoop
Zach LaVine has shot over 69 percent each of the last 3 seasons on shots 0-3 feet. He’s at 61.4 percent this season and is 1-12 over his last 7 quarters. – 9:46 PM
Julia Poe @byjuliapoe
LaVine tries to throw down a hammer dunk and instead sends it ricocheting off the rim. He’s 1-for-6 at the rim tonight. Hasn’t scored in the third quarter. – 9:40 PM
KC Johnson @KCJHoop
LaVine just missed a point-blank layup. He’s 1-5 in paint after going 0-5 in paint on Monday in Milwaukee. – 9:30 PM
Mike McGraw @McGrawDHSports
Pretty miserable 2ndQ for #Bulls, were outscored by 17 and trail Orlando at halftime 50-33. Bulls shooting 26.8% from field, LaVine and Williams 7 pts each. – 9:11 PM

Another game where Zach LaVine can’t get things going at the rim.

Zach LaVine draws his normal cheers during pregame intros. – 8:07 PM
KC Johnson @KCJHoop
Billy Donovan’s approach to most situations is simple: Direct communication
That’s why he downplayed concerns about Zach LaVine’s potential trade saga leading to disengagement or issues on the court or in the locker room
Good stuff in here from Donovan: nbcsportschicago.com/nba/chicago-bu…6:55 PM
Julia Poe @byjuliapoe
Billy Donovan was asked by @CodyWesterlund about the report of Zach LaVine holding onto frustration about being benched against the Orlando Magic last November.
Billy said he hasn’t felt that from his end. pic.twitter.com/ZhA2UcbiBo6:44 PM

KC Johnson @KCJHoop
Donovan said he visited LaVine twice in LA this offseason and has always had responsive communication with him. Said he’s not worried about LaVine disengaging from team or not being professional. – 6:22 PM

Zach LaVine dodges trade talk, admits to being frustrated by the Bulls current situation: “It’s an upsetting thing when we’ve been trying to do the right thing for the last three or four years. It seems like we’re in the same place”
espn.com/nba/story/_/id…1:52 PM
Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops
Zach LaVine doesn’t deny that he and the Bulls could be headed for a breakup, and also that his feelings won’t bleed into the locker room. Too late, as the Bulls are officially a broken team.

Evan Sidery @esidery
Zach LaVine refused to answer today whether he wants to remain on the Bulls:
“If we need to talk about that at a time, you know, right now isn’t really the time to talk about that. … If something comes out obviously later on, that’ll be the time I talk about it.” pic.twitter.com/V0oSYOxaOc1:16 PM

KC Johnson @KCJHoop
Zach LaVine had multiple opportunities to deny being open to a possible change of scenery
And while he said he remains focused on winning and feels supported by Chicago, he didn’t take any of those opportunities

LaVine was less firm in trying to clear smoke re: trade rumors this morning.
He referenced his agent Rich Paul, who was with last night at the United Center for the Champions Classic. pic.twitter.com/t3cizupYkK12:51 PM

Zach LaVine was fairly guarded talking to media this morning in the wake of the report that there’s mutual interest in a trade out of Chicago.
On conversations with the Bulls front office: “My camp talks to them all the time.” pic.twitter.com/oqMtiqONv212:49 PM

KC Johnson @KCJHoop
As far as LaVine remaining committed/professional: “I don’t take anything for granted. My time here has been nothing but wonderful. I’ve grown up here. I’ve raised a family here. Had some great memories. Hopefully, people understand that, how much I care about Chicago.” – 12:45 PM
KC Johnson @KCJHoop
LaVine, on why he’s not taking his usual path on rumor: “That’s why I have representatives like Rich Paul. If he speaks on my behalf, that’s my agent. That’s who I obviously have my camp with. They talk to Arturas and them. My job is to go out here and play. Simple as that.” – 12:38 PM

Zach LaVine sounded like a guy that wants to be elsewhere … he just wants to not look like the bad guy. – 12:29 PM
KC Johnson @KCJHoop
Normally, Zach LaVine says he’s frustrated Bulls aren’t winning. Usually, he responds to rumors by saying “if it didn’t come my mouth . . .” He didn’t do that today. Said “it’s a business.” Said Rich Paul and AK have good relationship. – 12:26 PM
