Coby White is set to be a restricted free agent after spending four seasons with the Chicago Bulls.
The Chicago Bulls have a variety of personnel decisions to make this offseason, including guard Coby White. Coby White is due to become a restricted free agency, and after seeing his name circulate in trade rumors over the last two seasons, the Bulls are now leaning toward matching any offer’ for him.
Chicago Sun-Time beat writer Joe Cowley is reporting that the Bulls will likely match the offer:
That still leaves a huge hole at point guard, especially with Beverley likely elsewhere. No problem. White showed enough for the organization to believe in him taking the starting reins, but that comes at a price. White is a restricted free agent, and the Bulls will let the market set a price for him, likely matching it once it does.
There’s no reason why White won’t be in the $14-$15 million per year range.
The upcoming offseason will be crucial for White in terms of his career and role as will the 2023-24 season and seeing Chicago Bulls live scores with White’s impact. White has mentioned his desire to be a starting point guard and his affection for the city of Chicago. However, the Bulls have a few options at guard, and White did have a shot to start early in his career.
In 74 games this season, White averaged a career-low 9.7 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 2.8 assists per game on 37% shooting from 3-point range.
