 DEERFIELD, Ill. (AP) - The Chicago Bulls, in need of help on offense, acquired the draft rights to Creighton forward Doug McDermott on Thursday night.
Now, they can turn their attention to a bigger move. A trade for Kevin Love? How about adding Carmelo Anthony in free agency?
Those moves sure would jolt a team that clawed its way to 48 wins despite losing franchise player Derrick Rose to another season-ending knee injury. This is a start, though.
The Nuggets took McDermott at No. 11 and promptly dealt him to Chicago for the 16th and 19th picks, a person familiar with the situation said on the condition of anonymity because the deal had not been announced.
McDermott led the nation in scoring last season, averaging 26.7 points per game.
