Point Guard Quinn Cook — Restricted

There is no greater pain in any Bulls fan’s side at the moment than the point guard position. It is a well-known fact that Chicago is going to do something this summer, whether it’s in the draft or free agency — or both.

We still aren’t quite sure what the future holds for Kris Dunn, but if he and the Bulls end up parting ways in some way, I would love to see the team go after multiple point guards this summer.

It’s not that I don’t like Ryan Arcidiacono or even the unproven Walt Lemon (among the others on the carousel). I simply believe this Bulls team is a playoff team if they have a competent starting point guard. With that, though, comes the need for depth.

I like Arcidiacono, but his inconsistencies drove me mad at times last season. He’s still developing, and is more of an “in case of emergency” type of player.

Quinn Cook could change the Bulls’ outlook at the position in a hurry, but he is a restricted free agent. For someone who plays the backup point guard and has proven he can knock down some big-time shots at times, Cook might get an offer which exceeds both the Warriors’ and Bulls’ value on him.

If Cook should come at a decent price, he would absolutely upgrade the backup spot. With championship experience along with his youth (26 years old), the Bulls would be getting a strong player.
