Bulls coach Jim Boylen likes bringing Coby White off the bench despite fans’ plea for him to start
The Chicago Bulls didn’t draft Coby White with the seventh overall pick to be a bench player. Eventually, Jim Boylen and Chicago will hand the keys to the offense to White and let him run the show. It just won’t happen this season.
The Bulls have been starting Tomas Satoransky this season at the point guard spot. With that said, it is unlikely for White to start a single game this season unless both Satoransky and Kris Dunn are hurt:

White has appeared in every game for the Bulls this season. He’s averaging 11.1 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists while shooting 37.2 percent from the field, 33.9 percent from beyond the arc and 73.6 percent from the free-throw line.
The Bulls have been looking for a quality point guard ever since the Derrick Rose trade. Chicago’s front office and ownership are hoping White is the answer.
