The Philadelphia 76ers’ 2021-22 NBA season ended in disappointment Thursday with a second-round loss to the Miami Heat. The series was a struggle from the start, with Embiid missing Games 1 and 2. The battle with Miami exposed the need for more scoring talent around Joel Embiid.

Meanwhile, the Chicago Bulls’ season ended after just one playoff win. Guard Zach LaVine is a free agent this offseason and presents one of the league’s most exciting options on the market.

The guard has hinted at a desire to test the market, so Chicago may have to prepare for a future without him.

The best move Chicago could make if LaVine were to leave is a sign-and-trade, where they could recoup some return. LaVine will likely warrant a max deal this offseason, so the cap situation will limit the potential buyers.
