Coby White Stats

Coby White was one of the best point guards in the nation last season and showed complete command of UNC's offense, averaging 16.1 points per game (PPG), 4.1 assists per game (APG) while shooting 35.3 percent from beyond the arc on 6.7 three-point attempts per game as a freshman.

A proven scorer with good floor vision, White's skill on the offensive side of the ball is without question. However, his subpar defensive instincts will be his biggest weakness in the NBA, which could limit his role as a pro. While he doesn't offer much defensive upside, White's elite speed, smooth stroke and inherent ability to score should allow him to create a significant role on an NBA team.

Coby White NBA Draft Predictions

- Phoenix Suns (No. 6), Chicago Bulls (No. 7)

The Suns need a point guard and need one badly, as they just couldn't find any consistency out of Isaiah Cannon, Tyler Johnson, or De’Anthony Melton at the point last year. White is an excellent distributor and loves to push the pace in transition, which should open up floor space for Phoenix's perimeter shooters.

The Bulls have plenty of holes up and down their roster, but a point guard to lead their young core into the future should take priority over other areas of need. White's skill set would be an excellent addition to a Chicago roster in need of an athletic floor general.
