Ask Sam Mailbag: Questions about Coby White, the MVP race, Devon Dotson, and more

The play of Nikola Jokic tells me that Tom Boerwinkle played in the wrong era. Who would you nominate for the Norm Van Lier Award (presented to the scrappiest player)?. Tom couldn't shoot like that. Maybe Jerry Lucas. But that's a good idea for the Van Lier award. Obviously, Arcidiacono is scrappy. But he hardly plays enough to make the impact. I'd select Thad Young. I rarely seen anyone retrieve his own team's turnovers as often, though unfortunately many of his own. I doubt there's a good statistic for that. Young is amazing the way he can get back in transition and retrieve his own—or others'—mistakes. Also, the way he can find rebounds in the middle of three taller guys, though it helps that players today seem to believe boxing out is a foul. He also is uncanny keeping balls alive; those things you don't see in the box score stats. Which makes me wonder some about his fate. It seems for now the Bulls have a Core Four in LaVine, Vucevic, White and Williams. And the next lottery pick if they get lucky and then free agency. I'm guessing Karnisovas wants to be a major player in free agency given the way he pursued Vucevic. There's really no more development, as well, the way players like Garrett Temple played so much. Neither Young nor Satoransky is fully guaranteed for next season; so they could be sacrificed in the name of cap room for a free agent. Remember, beloved captain Kirk Hinrich once was. There are plenty of decisions to make with Lauri Markkanen a restricted free agent and possibly stretching of contracts. So there's no way to even really guess for now. The notion is a team like the Lakers or Nets needs a player like Young. And even if the Bulls are not them next season, I don't believe they are going to be what they've been. Having a savvy veteran player like Young is valuable. I'd hope they can figure out a way to keep him. And maybe even get him that first Norm award.

Chicago Bulls: Devon Dotson now leads the team in this key stat

One player that the Chicago Bulls fan base was waiting to see what type of impact he could make this season, but had to wait a long while for, was the rookie former Kansas Jayhawks star point guard Devon Dotson. As one of the players holding a two-way contract slot on the Bulls this season, along with second-year shooting guard/wing Adam Mokoka, Dotson didn’t look like he would get much playing time out of the gates.

Dotson (knee) isn't listed on the injury report for Wednesday's game against the Spurs. The 20-year-old was sidelined the past few games with a sprained right knee but will be available Wednesday. Dotson is unlikely to have a spot in coach Billy Donovan's rotation with Tomas Satoransky, Coby White and Ryan Arcidiacono all healthy and ahead of his on the depth chart.

Bulls' Devon Dotson: Out with sprained knee

The Bulls recalled Dotson from the G League's Canton Charge on Monday after he was diagnosed with a sprained right knee, Daniel Greenberg of FanSided.com reports. Chicago hasn't disclosed the severity of Dotson's knee injury, but the club's decision to recall him suggests he won't be healthy enough to rejoin the Charge before the G League regular season wraps up this weekend. The two-way guard had averaged 13.0 points, 5.6 assists, 3.8 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 0.9 triples in 31.4 minutes per game over 10 outings with Canton.

Dotson logged 21 points (7-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three steals, two assists and one rebound over 27 minutes in Saturday's 113-112 loss to the Ignite. Dotson has been somewhat inconsistent while starting all 10 of his appearances to begin the season, but he's now topped 15 points in each of the past two contests. He tied for the team lead on the scoreboard with a season-high 21 points Saturday and will attempt to stay hot over the final several games of the G League season.

Bulls Rookie Devon Dotson Has Impressed in His First G-League Action

When Sam Merril was selected with the No. 60 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, I was confused. The draft had officially ended without Kansas guard Devon Dotson coming off the board. A player who had just averaged 18.1 points. 4.0 assists, 4.1 rebounds, and 2.1 steals for the 28-3 Kansas Jayhawks, a.k.a. the No. 1 team in college basketball.

Self found a Devon Dotson clone in KU’s win over TCU. It’s probably not who you think

Perhaps it was fitting that ESPN’s Fran Fraschilla was calling Tuesday’s Kansas-TCU game, because the Jayhawks ran his favorite Bill Self play in the second half. This one was successful time and again a season ago. Self originally came up with the concept as a way to take advantage of West Virginia’s pressuring defense a few years back, and since then, it’s become a staple of the Jayhawks’ playbook.
