The NBA season just tipped off but a few teams are looking to make moves to improve their rosters.
We saw the James Harden saga finally come to an end in Philadelphia as he was traded to the Los Angeles Clippers.
But, you can bet that will only be the first of many trades that are made this season.
One player who has seen his name floated around is Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine.
The Bulls are not expected to be competitive this year and LaVine looks destined to be playing elsewhere.
According to NBACentral, the Miami Heat are the favorites to land LaVine if he is traded.

Also mentioned on the list are the Brooklyn Nets, New York Knicks, Atlanta Hawks, and Dallas Mavericks.
LaVine is 28 years old and has five straight seasons averaging at least 23 points per game.
He is a great scorer and has turned himself into an All-Star-caliber player.
The Heat have been looking to make a big move for a while now.
Many thought they would end up with Damian Lillard.
But, once he went to the Milwaukee Bucks, the Heat needed to pivot.
LaVine could be another good scorer next to Jimmy Butler who could help push the defending Eastern Conference champions over the top.
Another team to keep an eye on that is not mentioned is the Philadelphia 76ers.
Now that they have traded Harden, it is possible they could be looking for a player like LaVine.
