Update (7/8/18, 9:27 a.m.): The Bulls have matched the Kings' four-year, $78 million offer sheet on restricted free agent Zach LaVine.
The Zach LaVine experience lasted all of about two hours in Sacramento. The Kings signed the 23-year-old restricted free agent to a four-year, $78 million contract on Friday evening, but it appears that the Bulls will match.

LaVine joined the Bulls via trade last summer, but missed all but 24 games due to a knee injury. He flew to Sacramento this week where he met with the front office and medical staff.
With Chicago reportedly matching, it’s back to the drawing board for the Kings, who have roughly $19 million in available cap space.
