Bulls deal picks for Doug McDermottDenver selected McDermott with the 11th pick. Earlier in the day, the Nuggets were reunited with Arron Afflalo, picking up the veteran guard from Orlando for guard Evan Fournier and the No. 56 pick. The Chicago Bulls got their man, trading their two first-round picks for sharp-shooting forward Doug McDermott, who was taken 11th by the Denver Nuggets. McDermott was the consensus college player of the year during his senior season, averaging 26.7 points, shooting 52.6 percent from the field and 45 percent from 3-point ranger. As a team, the Bulls shot 42 percent from the field and 33.3 percent on 3-pointers last year. They were also looking for a trade partner for the 16th and 19th picks to shave money off next year's salary cap. They were the lowest-scoring team in the NBA, averaging 93.7 points per game without Derrick Rose for all but 10 games.
