32. Zach LaVine

Arriving as part of a blockbuster trade that sent Jimmy Butler to Minnesota, Zack LaVine became a scoring star in Chicago, though many basketball pundits believed that would transpire.

The Shooting Guard only played 24 Games in 2017-18 as he was recovering from a torn ACL.  He averaged 16.7 Points in his return, which was significantly increased to 23.7 Points in 2018-19 with an 18.7 PER.  

Now the number one option on the Bulls, LaVine had very good numbers in PER (19.4) and Points per Game (25.5) in 2019-20, which he grew to 21.5 and 27.4 respectively last season.  For his efforts, LaVine went to his first All-Star Game .  

Still a Bull, LaVine will climb this list, but he needs to take Chicago to the playoffs for him to gain a high rank.
