The Chicago Bulls are exploring the trade market in search of a first-round draft pick in exchange for either center Robin Lopez or forward Doug McDermott, league sources told Basketball Insiders. Chicago has its own 2017 first-round pick and is also owed Sacramento’s 2017 first-round pick. However, Sacramento’s pick is top-10 protected. Chicago is currently tied for the seventh seed in the Eastern Conference standings with the Detroit Pistons with a 26-29 record.

Asked whether McDermott, in his third year, even should be battling confidence problems, Hoiberg said that ups and downs are part of being a shooter in the NBA. “It’s human nature as a shooter, when you’re struggling, you try to get as close to that rim as you can, and you try and guide it up there, as opposed to trusting that stroke and shooting it,’’ Hoiberg said. “It looks like he’s trying to seek contact a little bit, as opposed to going up without hesitation and shooting. “The big thing for Doug is to trust it. We have a lot of confidence in Doug. Everyone in this organization does. He needs to continue to take them when they’re there. We need him to make shots. When he and Niko [Mirotic] are shooting the ball well, we generally play well.’’

McDermott felt good. He figured he would be exiting the NBA’s concussion protocol shortly and returning to trying to space the floor for teammates like Jimmy Butler and Dwyane Wade. The specialist put him through a battery of tests. “And then I got into the cab to get home and I just completely lost my head,” McDermott said. “I didn’t know where I was in Chicago. I finally got back to my place and just had a crazy headache. That’s when I was like, ‘Dang, this will take longer than I thought.’ It was a real low point.”
