3 Trade Targets Involving Coby White for Bulls To Consider

Coby White, Chicago Bulls, NBA Trade Rumors

One of the surprises of the 2021-22 NBA season has been how good the Chicago Bulls have been, but this really should not come as a surprise. 

DeMar DeRozan, Zach LaVine and Nikola Vucevic are three proven All-Stars in this league and with Lonzo Ball, one of the better two-way guards in the league, and a defensive-stopper in Alex Caruso, the Bulls have suddenly built themselves into a formidable opponent in the Eastern Conference. 

Currently 27-12, the Bulls hold the best record in the East right now and while they recently fell victim to the Brooklyn Nets, they are still 1.5 games up on them for first-place in the conference. 

With DeMar DeRozan playing like a true MVP-caliber talent and the Bulls being one of the best offensive teams in the NBA, it is definitely going to be hard to beat Chicago late in the season. However, there are still question marks about how well this team can be defensively.

Through the first-half of the 2021-22 season, the Bulls have looked like one of the better defensive teams in the league at times, but other than Lonzo Ball, Alex Caruso and Patrick Williams, it is hard to pinpoint who can aid them on this side of the court. 

With Caruso and Williams both out for the Bulls right now, these question marks are starting to grow a little bit more. The Bulls need more talent on the wing if they are to be a true championship contender this season and leveraging Coby White could be their avenue to improving their roter. 

White was drafted 7th overall in 2019 and has turned himself into a key bench scorer this season for Chicago, but he has just one more year left on his rookie contract after this season and is one of the only contracts the Bulls could look to leverage ahead of the trade deadline.

Parting ways with Patrick Williams is not something the Bulls plan to do at the deadline, but HoopsHype’s Michael Scotto wrote recently that Coby White “is available for the right upgrade”. 

Could the Bulls actually look to trade Coby White for more “win-now” talents? Let’s take a look at three players Chicago should be targeting as a potential return for leveraging White.
