The Chicago Bulls rookie Coby White shared his thoughts on the coming 2020-2021 season and how he wants to continue improving, after being named a member of the All-Rookie Second Team.

White pointed out, in the latest Joe Cowley’s piece in the Chicago Sun-Times, that his primary position is point guard, but he feels that he has suitable traits to play as a combo guard.

(via FanSided):

“I think moving forward my primary position is point guard but I also can play off the ball because I can score and shoot it so well,’’ White said. “So I think that this past year showcased that I can be a point guard but I can also play off the ball at times when I need to.”

The Bulls’ point guard finished the shortened 2019-20 season averaging 13.2 points. 3.5 rebounds and 2.7 assists.
