Two days sit between the Chicago Bulls and the start of free agency, with point guard still as a possible looming need for this team.

While the need for the Chicago Bulls to add a veteran point guard in free agency this summer diminished greatly after selecting 6-foot-5 dynamic scoring floor general Coby White in the NBA Draft last week, there is still the option to go after one. Starting on June 30, the floodgates will open for free agency this offseason, and the Bulls will be able to jump firmly into the pool to round out their young rotation.

The mid-level free agent point guards in this class are going to get way overpaid this year compared to what they would get next. NBA teams are going to party like it’s 2016 in terms of the money spent in mid-level free agents that are known as role players. This is why the Bulls will have to dig very deep to find the point guard answer of the future in free agency.

Granted the Bulls don’t need this point guard to fill a starting role in a crucial spot for a lengthy span of time. Getting a floor general that does bolster the roster for two or three years is a major bonus and the reason why the Bulls need to dig deep at this position if nothing else.

Landing White in the 2019 NBA Draft does add versatility and flexibility to use the Bulls cap room elsewhere to round out the rotation. Here’s a deeper look into the four most criminally underrated free agent point guard targets for the Chicago Bulls this summer.
