DENVER (AP) - The Denver Nuggets have picked Creighton small forward Doug McDermott with the No. 11 pick in the NBA draft.
Several outlets are reporting that McDermott will be traded to Chicago for the 16th and 19th picks.
McDermott led the nation in scoring last season with a 26.7 average while shooting 52.6 percent from the field. He finished his college career as basketball's fifth-leading scorer.
The 6-foot-8 McDermott captured quite a few accolades last season, including the Wooden Award. He also was picked as player of the year by both the U.S. Basketball Writers Association and The Associated Press.
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 in the draft.
