The Chicago Bulls have been impressed by Coby White during the first week of camp.
“He’s been really good [the first week],’’ Jim Boylen said. “What I’ve been impressed with is his maturity level on the floor and how quickly he can kind of pick up things and grow.
“He’s not scared, which I love. He’s more physical than I thought this early. He’s a big body. He can play on the ball and off the ball. He shot the ball very well in camp. He puts a shoulder on you, you feel it. His physicality is what we hoped it would be; I didn’t know if it would come this fast. We’re thankful for him.’’
Minutes could be difficult to find for White as the Bulls also added Tomas Satoransky.
“We’ve added ballers to this team,’’ Boylen said. “Coby White, whether he’s a one, he’s a two, he’s a baller. . . . That’s what this roster is. We’ve got to do a good job using those guys and give them space and freedom to use what they have.’’
