Coby White has shown a tremendous surge recently. In the two weeks prior to last night’s loss to the Pacers, Coby has been a scoring spark off the bench. In this time, White averaged 13.4 points on 52/48.1/100 shooting splits while adding an additional 3.4 boards and 1 steal per game.
Coby has had an up-and-down time with the Bulls over the course of his career, but he is finding his groove as of late. He has been mentioned in many trade talks and if these are some of his last days with the Bulls, it is encouraging to see that he is developing into a strong NBA player.
He has improved his shooting, ball handling, and playmaking skills, showing off all of these developments during this recent stretch. The 22-year-old still has a ton of time to develop, and this could even be a situation that Bulls fans are all too familiar with: where an ex-Bulls player develops into a potential all-star similar to what Lauri Markkanen is doing this season.
Coby White joins DeMar DeRozan as one of the Chicago Bulls’ most reliable offensive threats.
To preface this ranking, DeMar DeRozan is only so low on this list because of his recent missed time and the outstanding play from LaVine and Vucevic. DeMar suffered a right quad injury that forced him to miss 3 games, where the Bulls went 1-2. However, DeRozan came back strong in Paris, scoring 26 points while adding 9 rebounds and 5 assists on 9-18 shooting from the field.
The Bulls star continued to do what has worked all season, making 7 mid-range shots and getting to the free throw line consistently. DeRozan has consistently shown that he has maybe the best mid-range jumper in the league, and he was able to knock down those shots last Thursday
