REPORT: Bulls informed Kris Dunn of plan to ‘upgrade’ PG position

Kris Dunn, Bulls

Kris Dunn has revealed that during his 2019 exit interview, the Chicago Bulls informed him of their plan to ‘upgrade’ the point guard position.

True to their word, the Bulls drafted North Carolina Tar Heels playmaker Coby White with the seventh overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft. They also bolstered the position with the addition of Tomas Satoransky in free agency.

The additions of White and Satoransky mean that Dunn’s starting job is in peril. However, the 25-year-old is embracing the challenge and vows to play as hard as he can and do whatever is necessary to help the team win — even if it means starting off the bench.

Last season, Dunn played in 46 games and started 44 of them. Unfortunately, his numbers dwindled from the 2017-18 season, averaging 11.3 points, 4.1 rebounds, 6.0 assists and 1.5 steals while shooting 42.5 percent from the field, 35.4 percent from 3-point territory and 79.7 percent from the free-throw line.

Dunn has to prove himself if he wants to keep his starting job. White has shown flashes of brilliance during the Summer League, while Satoransky impressed during the FIBA World Cup with the Czech Republic.

As of now, there’s no clear-cut choice for the Bulls’ starting point guard, so training camp will certainly be intense.
