6. Tomas Satoransky (Present starter)

Number of starts: 32

It really is too early to grade out the tenure for the former Wizards 6-foot-7 combo guard Tomas Satoransky as the starting point guard for the Chicago Bulls. In a sign-and-trade deal during the 2019 offseason, John Paxson and Gar Forman made the move to bring in Satoransky on a three-year contract worth $30 million (the last $5 million non-guaranteed).

So far this season, Satoransky is averaging 10.0 points per game, 5.3 assists, 3.7 rebounds, and 1.5 steals, while shooting 45.7 percent from the field and 39.4 percent from beyond the arc. Satoransky could have a special tenure as the Bulls starting point guard, but he has to get more aggressive since he is efficient with the ball in his hands and with shot selection.

5. Kris Dunn (2017-Present)

Number of starts: 100

Satoransky would be ranked higher than the fourth-year point guard and former Minnesota Timberwolves lottery pick Kris Dunn if his productive tenure was lengthier with the Bulls. In 130 games played over the course of three seasons in a Bulls uniform, Dunn averaged 11.1 points per game, 4.2 assists, 3.5 rebounds, and 1.8 steals.

It seems like GarPax finally got tired of trying out Dunn as the Bulls starting point guard of the future over the 2019 offseason. That’s why they elected to draft the former North Carolina Tar Heels 6-foot-5 floor general Coby White with the seventh overall pick last offseason, and add Sato via a sign-and-trade with the Wizards.

But Dunn was by no means the worst starting point guard over the last decade with the Bulls, and he is one of the best defensively.
