Bulls and Suns appear to be the trendy mock pick

    Former UNC Basketball point guard Coby White left the NBA Draft combine early after reportedly receiving a promise in the Top 10

    Point guard Coby White was one of three North Carolina Tar Heels
    that were invited to participate in the 2019 NBA Scouting Combine two
    weeks ago in Chicago and he may have left with a promise from some

    White is considered one of the top 3 point guard prospects in this upcoming 2019 NBA Draft and will likely hear his name Brice Johnson Jersey
    called within the lottery picks. After a very impressive freshman
    season at North Carolina, White’s stock continued to climb as the games
    went on.

    While the majority of prospects stayed at the combine in Chicago to
    test out and participate in scrimmages, White was one of the few that
    left after speaking to teams. White leaving early indicates that he
    could have a promise from a few teams to be selected in the Top 10.

    Following Day 1 of the combine, White received a lot of praise from analysts, fellow players,
    and even scouts at the combine. The Athletic’s Darnell Mayberry
    reported that White left early with that promise and expects to hear his
    name called anywhere form pick No. 5 9

    Then there’s this. Asked on Wednesday what kind of feedback he’s
    getting from teams about his draft range, White said, “Right now, I just
    know the five to nine range.”

    “You dream about playing in the NBA your whole life, and playing in
    Chicago for the Bulls, it’ll be a happy moment for me,” White said.
    “Wherever I land,
    hopefully I’ll be able to make a major impact. I’m looking forward to
    it. The league is full of great point guards every night, so I’m looking
    forward to the challenge and testing myself.”

    As soon as the NBA Draft order was determined with the lottery,
    White started to be mocked in that range in several mock drafts. He’s a
    fit for a few teams that need a point guard including the Phoenix Suns,
    Chicago Bulls and Minnesota Timberwolves.

    The Bulls and Suns appear to be the trendy mock pick for White with
    Phoenix picking at No. 6 and Chicago at No. 7. That would fit right in
    with that 5 9 prediction mentioned in the article.

    In one season at North Carolina,
    White averaged 16.1 points , 4.1 assists and 3.5 rebounds per game
    while shooting 42 percent from the field and 35 percent from the three
    point line while breaking Michael Jordan’s program record for most 30
    plus point games for a freshman.
