NBA: No Bulls trade concerns for LaVine

Zach LaVine has no concerns over Chicago's lack of business before the trade deadline and feels the Bulls remain one of the strongest Eastern Conference sides.

Chicago, who are 28/1 to win the NBA Championship outright, kept their team intact and opted not to bring in any new faces, while a number of their conference rivals strengthened.

Plenty of trade action

Brooklyn Nets sent James Harden to Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for Ben Simmons in a deal that could benefit both parties, defending champions Milwaukee Bucks added Serge Ibaka and guard Caris LeVert left Indiana Pacers for Cleveland Cavaliers.

Chicago were tentatively linked with a few players but nothing materialised, although LaVine believes their current squad is strong enough to challenge for the championship.

"It's our job to come out here with the guys that we have, and when we were healthy, we were showing that we were always at the top and one of the best teams in the NBA," he said, via NBC Sports. "I think that's what we're hanging our hat on. When we get healthy, we'll get back to what we do."

LaVine confident in the Bulls

He added: "When we get healthy and we do we do what we supposed to do, I don't see anybody better than us in the East. That's just my opinion. Competition-wise, you step on the line, you go throw the ball up, I don't think anybody's better than us."

Chicago beat Minnesota Timberwolves 134-122 on Friday and are back in action when Oklahoma City Thunder visit on Saturday and you can catch this game on our Sports Live Streaming hub.
