25. Coby White — Chicago Bulls
Coby White is the new clubhouse leader in the “Most Overrated Former Lottery Pick Guard” debate. This was a mantle previously held by Dennis Smith Jr. (it’s hard to be overrated when you’ve been on three teams in four seasons like Dennis has). With players like White, it’s often as simple as accepting the information their coaches give us. Chicago fans thought they secured their backcourt of the future when White was selected 7th overall in 2019.
After coming off the bench in Year 1, White started 54-of-69 games last year alongside franchise star Zach Lavine. The pairing clearly didn’t inspire much confidence in Chicago’s front office. Following the season, the Bulls went out and signed free agent PG Lonzo Ball to an $85 million deal. White can score the rock, but his defensive and playmaking limitations have relegated him to a reserve role.
