2020 Fantasy Outlook
White's first season in the league saw him show flashes of offensive excellence, as he posted a career high of 35 points in late February and was regularly recording 20-point outings prior to the suspension of play in March. The now 20-year-old guard was eventually inserted into the starting lineup, and he will likely remain there to start 2020-21 under new coach Billy Donovan. Though he finished the season strong and made the All-Rookie Second Team, it wasn't all positive for White during his rookie campaign. As a point guard, he averaged just 2.7 assists per game and shot a horrific 39.4 percent from the field. He showed no hesitation in firing threes with 5.8 attempts per game on an average 35.4 percent shooting. White didn't get to the line much either at just 2.0 attempts per game, further hampering his efficiency levels. The 20-year-old has plenty of time to grow into a more well-rounded player, but he'll need to grow if he's going to last as a starting NBA point guard. With talented offensive players like Zach LaVine and Lauri Markkanen surrounding him, White's value will rise if he gets his teammates involved a bit more than he did as a rookie. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio

Alec Jacoby (Coby) White was born in Goldsboro, North Carolina in 2000 to Donald and Bonita White. During the 1970s, Donald played four years of college basketball at North Carolina Central. White's older brother Will also participated in the early 2010s at Mars Hill University. At the Greenfield School, Coby established a career state high-school record by scoring 3,573 points. He went on to earn the honors of North Carolina's Mr. Basketball and USA Today's North Carolina Player of the Year after his senior season in 2018. White also led the Team USA in scoring that summer at the FIBA Under-18 Americas Championship, en route to winning the Gold Medal.

College/International Summary

The 2018-19 North Carolina Tar Heels had established scorers in forward Luke Maye and wing Cameron Johnson. While the bigger players were consistent sources of points, it was White that really made the team go. After scoring 16 points or fewer in his first five games, White took off for 33 points in a November loss to Texas. He hit seven three-pointers in the loss in what was his first of three games where he topped the 30-point plateau. The 6-foot-1 blur would lead the Tar Heels past Miami in February with 33 points and had a career-high 34 points in a win over Syracuse later that month. On the season, White averaged 16.1 points, 4.1 assists and 3.5 rebounds. He hit 35.3 percent of his three-pointers and a North Carolina freshman-record 82 treys. The Tar Heels advanced to the Sweet 16 where they lost to Auburn. White averaged 14.0 points and 3.3 assists in the NCAA Tournament. He was named to the All-ACC Second Team. He declared for the 2019 NBA Draft after just one season under coach Roy Williams.

Undergoes shoulder surgery

Shoulder
June 10, 2021
White underwent surgery on his left shoulder Thursday after suffering an injury while engaged in basketball activities away from the team.
ANALYSIS
White will re-evaluated in four months, which means he will be sidelined for essentially the entire offseason. The 21-year-old guard's absence could bleed into training camp, and the injury could even impact him at the beginning of the 2021-22 regular season, which is officially set to begin on October 19. Across 69 games this season, White averaged 15.1 points on 41.6 percent shooting, 4.8 assists, 4.1 rebounds and 2.4 triples per game.

Past Season Summaries
2020

White's second season with the Bulls saw him experience an uptick in his numbers across the board. The second-year point guard began the season as a starter, then played 15 straight games off the bench, and then he started the final 18 contests of the campaign. All things considered, White appeared in 69 of Chicago's 72 games, starting 54 times. His best performance of the season came on Jan. 6, when he finished with 37 points and seven assists at the Sacramento Kings. That was one of the three games where he finished with at least 30 points. Other season-high marks for the North Carolina product included 10 rebounds, 13 assists, three steals and two blocks. White also posted five double-doubles throughout the campaign.. He averaged 15.1 points, 4.8 assists, 4.1 rebounds, 0.6 steals and 0.2 blocks across 31.2 minutes per game, reaching career-best numbers in all of those categories except the steals department. White also shot 41.6 percent from the field, 35.9 percent from three-point range and 90.1 percent from the free-throw line.

2019

After one collegiate season at UNC, White was selected with the seventh overall pick by the Chicago Bulls in the 2019 NBA Draft. He made his NBA debut on opening night, Oct. 23, against the Hornets. In 27 minutes, White posted 17 points (6-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-5 FT), seven assists and three rebounds. He went on to have his first 25-point game of the campaign just one game later against the Grizzlies. In 30 minutes versus Memphis, White posted 25 points (10-16 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds and two assists. He had his first 30-point game Feb. 22 against the Suns, scoring 33 points on 22 shots in 34 minutes. He proceeded to have two more 30-point efforts in a row, dropping 33 again (on 18 shots) against the Wizards in 34 minutes and then posting 35 points on 21 shots against the Thunder on Feb. 25. During the final nine games of the pandemic-shortened regular season, White averaged 26.1 points, 4.4 assists, 4.2 rebounds and 3.9 three-pointers in 19.9 minutes per contest. During that stretch, he shot 48.0 percent from the field, 43.2 percent from three and 90.3 percent from the free-throw line. White appeared in all 65 of Chicago's games, with one start. Overall, he averaged 13.2 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 2.0 three-pointers in 25.8 minutes per game while shooting 39.4 percent from the field and 35.4 percent from behind the arc. In September, the high scoring guard was named to the All-Rookie Second Team.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Bulls' front office has been surprisingly vocal in their dismissal of Kris Dunn as the team's future at point guard, so White will attempt to make more of an impact as a prospect. The UNC product was named to the 2018-19 All-ACC team, and he averaged 18.1 points, 4.2 assists, 3.7 rebounds and 1.1 steals per contest in conference play. White's biggest strengths are his quickness and overall scoring ability. He showed off both at summer league, averaging 15.0 points in five games, though his 33.7 percent mark from the field and 3-of-30 clip from beyond the arc left a lot to be desired. It seems like Tomas Satoransky will be Chicago's opening night starter at point guard, but White should be firmly in line for minutes as the first point guard off the bench. It's possible his role expands if he can make an impact early on, but fantasy owners shouldn't expect big minutes out of White as a rookie.
