Chicago Bulls Hit Home Run With Trade For Doug McDermott





Leading up to the 2014 NBA Draft there weren’t very many mocks sending Doug McDermott to the Chicago Bulls. Not because he wasn’t a good fit with the Bulls, but because there was little chance he’d fall to them at No. 16. But thanks to a shrewd move from Chicago’s front office on Thursday night, McDermott was sent to the Bulls shortly after being selected by the Denver Nuggets at No. 11.

The 2013 NCAA Player of the Year was dealt to the Windy City in exchange for the Bulls picks at No. 16 and No. 19, a deal that almost everyone agrees was a win for both teams. Denver went on to pickĀ Jusuf Nurkic, who drew mixed reactions, and Gary Harris, who was viewed as a steal.

McDermott will now join a Bulls team that’s trying to ready itself for a deep run in the Eastern Conference playoffs this upcoming season. However, it’s probably a safe bet that there are more big moves to come from the Chicago front office. The former Creighton star is certainly a solid piece to the puzzle with his tremendous ability to score the ball, but you know there are additional plans to continue bolstering the roster.

If Chicago can land another scorer to the mix in the form of Carmelo Anthony, then look out. At that point it’d be safe to put the Bulls right alongside the favorites in the 2014-15 Eastern Conference. We’ll have to wait and see what plays out, but it’s already okay to call the Bulls’ 2014 draft a win.
