Bulls’ Kris Dunn Discusses New Offensive Role
The Chicago Bulls have undergone some big changes throughout the course of the 2018-2019 season, from the departure of Fred Hoiberg as head coach, to some drama under new head coach Jim Boylen.
Boylen has worked in a new offensive system, which has Dunn playing a different role to suit their new, traditional half court offense.
Dunn, has remained positive despite the changes.
“Nah. I think I got good listening skills,” Dunn said, according to K.C. Johnson of The Chicago Tribune. “I just listen to what coaches want me to do. I’m never one to disobey Coach’s rules.”
“There have been games where it worked. And there have been games where it’s on us to make shots. We’ve been getting good looks. We’ve been getting downhill from the offense. So it’s on us.”
