6. Antonio Blakeney

Antonio Blakeney is a one-dimensional basketball player, but he’s decent in his role. To put it simply, Blakeney is a chucker. He comes off the bench ready to shoot and that’s about all he does.

If you want someone to come off the bench and makes plays for others, Blakeney isn’t your guy. If you want someone to come off the bench and be a defensive stopper, Blakeney isn’t your guy. If you want someone to come in and put up eight shots in five minutes, Blakeney is most definitely your guy.

On the season, Blakeney is averaging 7.4 points per game on 43.3 percent shooting from the field and 45.3 percent shooting from 3-point range. Those are decent numbers since he’s only getting 13.6 minutes of action per contest.

If Blakeney could turn himself into a more well-rounded offensive weapon or could improve defensively, he’d likely have a much more interesting role on this team. For now, though, the Bulls use Blakeney when they’re struggling offensively and they need someone to come in and make shots.
