NBA Trade Rumors: It’s sounding more and more like Coby White is a good bet to be moved by the Chicago Bulls by the trade deadline.

At this point, it’s impossible to try and predict what the Chicago Bulls are going to do at the NBA Trade Deadline. However, at least for now, the thinking is that they’re going to try to make a run up the Eastern Conference standings during the second half of the season.

Watching to see how it all works out for the Bulls will be interesting to watch unfold but that seems to be the plan for now.

That means they will be looking for the opportunity to improve the roster ahead of the trade deadline. And one way they appear to be looking to do so is by daggling Coby White via the trade block. So much so that it’s looking like he’s a good bet to be moved by the deadline.

According to a recent report, White’s name has popped up quite frequently in trade talks.

Coby White could benefit from a change of scenery

White is not a stranger to the rumor mill. He’s been in and out of the rumor mill for the past year. Though, if the Bulls want to make an upgrade at the deadline (and if they’re not going to be a seller, they better try to make a move to take a step forward), it sounds like White will likely be part of whatever package they send out.

And I think that tells you all you need to know about White as a player. He holds value on the open market. I wouldn’t call him a bust of a player. Even though he has struggled over the last couple of seasons with the Bulls, he still has the raw talent that any team would want in a project.

He may only be averaging eight points per game this season but he’s also averaging a career low in minutes. On a more veteran-laden team, White has seen his opportunities diminish quickly over the last couple of seasons.

If he can land in the right spot, perhaps there could be somewhat of a career resurrection from White. At just 22 years old, it would be foolish for him not to, at the very least, not to be afforded that opportunity.
