Case for Coby White

The problem for the Chicago Bulls with the point guard position in the 2019 NBA Draft is the fact that both Coby White and Darius Garland were two of the fastest risers up the boards it seems entering the night of June 20. There’s multiple scenarios where White and Garland could be off the board by the time the Bulls are picking in the first place.

In the case of White, it’s his length and scoring ability that should draw interest his way. White stands at 6-foot-5 and 185 pounds. The strength and wingspan aren’t overwhelmingly positive attributes for White. His wingspan is roughly the same as his height and his narrow frame won’t play to his benefit either.

What does work well for White is his volume scoring ability while maintaining a respectable level of efficiency from range. He fits a general mold for the ideal NBA combo guard now with his length and strong ability in transition. White is electric in transition, and his mediocre facilitating ability is at its best on the run.

White is just a natural scorer, but he has a long way to go as a two-way guard for the Bulls. The scoring potential will always draw interest his way, and that leads to intrigue as to how he would combine with shooting guard Zach LaVine. They would play pretty well off of each other and White could fill that point guard role quickly in the Windy City.
