Bulls rookie Coby White says his NBA 2K rating is ‘solid,’ vows it will be ‘higher’ after 2019-20 season ends
Chicago Bulls rookie point guard Coby White says his NBA 2K20 rating is “solid” for a guy who hasn’t even played in an NBA game yet.
White is rated a 76 in the popular video game. The youngster says his rating will be “higher” after the 2019-20 season ends.
“It’s solid,” White told Ronnie 2K. “Everybody be wanting their grade to be higher than what it is but I haven’t played a game in the league yet so I understand why it’s a 76. But I feel like after the season it’ll be higher.”
The Bulls selected Coby White with the seventh overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft out of UNC. He will back up Kris Dunn next season at the point guard spot.
Last season at UNC, White averaged 16.1 points, 3.5 rebounds and 4.1 assists while shooting 42.3 percent from the field, 35.3 percent from beyond the arc and 80.0 percent from the free-throw line.
During Summer League in Las Vegas for the Bulls, White put up 15.0 points, 5.6 rebounds and 4.8 assists. He struggled with his shooting, as White shot 33.7 percent from the floor and just 10 percent from the 3-point line.
Perimeter shooting is the aspect of White’s game he has to work on the most.
White does most of his damage at the rim and in transition. He’s a blur in the open court and impossible to stay in front of. The Bulls are anxious and excited to see what White can do in his rookie season.
