The Sacramento Kings are still keeping focused on Chicago Bulls restricted free agent Zach LaVine, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Kings, armed with close to $20M in cap space, are still considering if they should extend an offer to LaVine, and, up to this point have been “pretty serious” about adding him.

Chicago also has the cap space to match a four-year, $80M offer sheet for LaVine, should one come across.

Chicago Bulls head coach Fred Hoiberg wasn’t too pleased with how his team played when they took the court to play the Milwaukee Bucks during preseason action.

“I was upset with everything,” Fred Hoiberg said, according to Darnell Mayberry of The Athletic.

“We weren’t getting back. We let our lack of shot-making affect our overall game as far as edge and effort. Our transition defense was not good, and we weren’t getting matched up coming back.”

“Luckily, it’s just preseason. It doesn’t count on our record,” Bulls forward Bobby Portis said. “But I think that moving forward we can use this as a lesson learned for the regular season and not have nights like this anymore.”

Chicago Bulls guard Kris Dunn hasn’t really capitalized on his potential and the Bulls are hoping that his second season in the Windy City will be much better than his first.

Dunn has been no stranger to criticism, and admits that he was “offended” over questions about his work ethic.

“I was definitely offended by it. My dad worked hard in life” Dunn said, according to the Chicago Tribune’s Shannon Ryan. “My brothers and sisters and me (took) hard work very seriously. It is the only way to succeed.”

Dunn won’t let the talk bother him and is looking forward to getting back to work and improving his game.

“You don’t get too caught up in it. You just keep doing what you do best. I know I work hard. I don’t have to prove it to anybody. I just have to show it on the court. I have no answers for (why the rumors originated). Whoever put it out there, that’s how they felt. Questioning my work ethic? That’s just (not valid). I work hard. If I’m not working, I’m around my family. Absolutely nothing (has changed about workouts or preparation).”
