   2017 NBA Manifesto

Kris Dunn
PG, 6’4, 205lbs, 23 years old, 1 year of experience

It was frankly a very poor rookie campaign for Dunn, in which he showed a lot of tools, but not much idea of what to do with them. Big, long and quick, with good handles, some flair and a committed defensive effort, Dunn had his moments on that end, and occasionally looked capable on offence when playing alongside Rubio. Yet when he was playing as the lead guard on offence, Dunn all too often looked lost. He did not have any go-to shot, shooting particularly poorly from outside, nor did he consistently get his team into sets. Dunn struggled with tempo, timing, poise and nous. Chicago thus have a player very much worth developing, but who needs a lot of it if he is to be more than a Marcus Smart-type.

While he has been inconsistent with his shooting both inside and outside the arc throughout his NBA career to date, and while he continues to struggle with turnovers, Dunn nevertheless shows the talent that got him drafted so high. A big, athletic point guard and committed defender, Dunn gets much more in the way of steals, rebounds and blocks than most others at his position, and gets some points and assists to go with it, as any point guard should. In his three games thus far this season, Dunn has averaged 21.9 fantasy points, and as he gets more game time under him, there will be more to come.

Back from injury, Dunn gives the Bulls a dimension that the steady but undynamic Jerian Grant can’t. He’s also a targeted piece for the future, which this placeholder season is ostensibly all about. He’ll play heavy minutes, and has averaged 9.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.5 blocks per game in the two he has managed thus far. There have also been 4.5 turnovers per game, but those won’t last. The rest might.
