Joe Cowley: According to the source, Timberwolves reached out to Bulls last night to let them know Cavs offer was best on the table. Gar Forman played poker face for about 12 hours, and then pushed all the chips in this morning. Confirmed Taj and McDermott as well as "other assets.'' Mirotic is still unconfirmed.

Joe Cowley: McDermott signing would hold deal back from being official for 30 days, but could agree in principle. If Forman and Bulls would have been all in on Tuesday for Love, they wouldn't have had McDermott sign. It's a Wed morning decision made. Twitter @suntimes_hoops

The Chicago Bulls have offered a package of Taj Gibson and rookies Doug McDermott and Nikola Mirotic to the Minnesota Timberwolves in exchange for Kevin Love, a league source told SheridanHoops.com on Wednesday. The package is extremely intriguing to the Timberwolves, but there is a catch — it cannot be completed for another 29 days after McDermott and Mirotic signed their rookie contracts Tuesday. NBA rules prohibit rookies from being traded within the first 30 days after they sign. SheridanHoops

Doug McDermott wouldn’t be an immediate option, after the team announced he signed his contract early Tuesday afternoon, which according to NBA rules, makes it so a rookie can’t be traded until at least 30 days after he puts his name on the dotted line. Chicago Sun-Times

Have you watched much video on Synergy? Doug McDermott: I watch a lot of Synergy. I don't watch Synergy on myself. I like to look at other players who I look up to. I think Synergy is so nice for guys if they want to reflect on what they're doing well, what they're doing wrong, but I don't watch myself a lot. KP: Do you think your reputation as a "shooter" undersells your ability to score in different ways, especially in the post? DM: I think so. I think being known as a shooter, guys tend to look at me as I can only spot up and shoot 3s. But I think the people who know are the people who watch Synergy, watched a lot of my games. I can score a lot of different ways and not just spot up. ESPN.com

The Chicago Bulls’ first-round pick out of Creighton lit up the Cox Pavilion so brightly – 7-for-12 overall, 5-for-9 from the arc, 12-for-12 from the line and 31 points against Denver’s squad – that anyone making a case for all the alleged other things in his game would have been drowned out, anyway, by the crowd’s reactions to each bucket. Or would that be McBucket? “I’m fine with that,” McDermott said afterward, his proficiency outside sparking the Bulls’ group to 19-for-36 on 3-pointers. “Really, that’s my biggest strength right now.” NBA.com
