The Bulls have decided it’s time for Coby White to be a point guard

Call it the next phase in the education of Coby White.

This is the part where the rookie actually starts playing some point guard.

“As you guys know, we’re taking this very methodically with Coby,’’ coach Jim Boylen said on Monday. “[Earlier in the year] I didn’t give him a whole bunch of titles, or he’s going to be this or be that. He’s going to come out and play basketball, and I think he’s done that pretty well for the first 23, 24 games.

“With our adjustment to the starting lineup, where our primary ball-handler in the second group [Kris Dunn] went to the first group, we adjusted in the second group where I think he needs to take more of a lead guard dominant ball-handling role.
