Player Bio

Zachary LaVine was born in Renton, Washington in 1995 to Paul LaVine and Cheryl Johnson-LaVine. His father played professional football while his mom starred at softball in college. At Bothell High School (Washington), LaVine played three seasons of varsity ball. He got noticed in his senior year when he posted averages of 28.5 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 2.5 assists. As a result, LaVine was named Washington Mr. Basketball, the Associated Press Washington State Player of the Year and a member of the Parade All-America Basketball First Team. As someone who studied American Sign Language in high school, he's regularly donated his time and effort to causes related to the deaf community. You can follow LaVine on Twitter (@ZachLaVine) and Instagram (@zachlavine8). During his one season at UCLA, LaVine was stuck on a team with a crowded backcourt. The team's top five scorers - including Jordan Adams, Kyle Anderson, and Norman Powell - were all guards. LaVine started just one game, but he managed to show off his athleticism and productivity in reserve minutes. He averaged 9.4 points and 2.5 assists, while hitting 37.5 percent of his three-pointers. The 6-foot-5 guard scored in double digits in eight of his first nine games, including a season-high 21 points in a November win over Nevada. He scored in double digits in just eight more games and saw his minutes fall off in early February, but LaVine was ready to go when called upon. He made his lone start in a game against Oregon and provided 18 points, eight rebounds and five assists in the double-overtime loss. The Bruins won the Pac-12 Tournament and advanced to the Sweet 16, but LaVine only scored in double digits once in that run. He made the Pac-12 All-Freshman Team, but he decided to put his name into the 2014 NBA Draft.
