Bulls Trade Up for Doug McDermott


The Bulls, as have been rumored for weeks, pulled the trigger and moved up in tonight’s draft. In desperate need of shooting and enamored with four year starter Doug McDermott from Creighton, the Bulls packaged the 16th and 19th overall picks along with a future second rounder for the rights to McDermott, who was taken 11th overall by the Denver Nuggets. Of course, McDermott could still be included in a sign-and-trade with New York for Carmelo Anthony, but it’s more likely that this means the Bulls are going to try and get rid of Mike Dunleavy. The Bulls have been following McDermott for a long time, and see him as a key piece to the future.

And hey, when asked what people will think about him when he retires, McDermott responded, “as a champion”. Welcome to Chicago, McBuckets.
