Scott Howard-Cooper

McDermott showing he is more than a shooter. He can get to the basket. Creighton’s step up to the Big East last season a hidden positive.

Amin Elhassan

McDermott just threw a cross court pass to Aaliyah #TooSoon?

Joe Cowley

At the start of camp, McDermott was definitely ahead of Mirotic. Guess who caught up and passed?

KC Johnson

Same lineup that produced 2nd-quarter burst. Snell, Moore, Mohammed, Mirotic, McDermott. Assume they finish, w/ possible dash of Bairstow.

Joe Cowley

Butler done for McBuckets.

Sean Highkin

McDermott still has yet to find his shot this season. Getting plenty of open looks.

Nick Friedell

Bulls' 2nd unit of Moore, McDermott, Snell, Mirotic, Nazr playing with confidence right now. Bulls' bench races off floor to give them love.

Mike Richman

Doug McDermott, E'Twaun Moore and Tony Snell are shooting the Bulls back into the game. Portland leads 39-35, 7:18 2Q

Sam Smith

Bulls lineup to open 2nd: McDermott, Moore, Mohammed, Snell and Mirotic. Players ask Snell to change last name so they can be the Five M's

Joe Cowley

Starting second with ... sit in chair first ... Nazr, Snell, Mirotic, McDermott and Moore running the show.

KC Johnson

Bulls open 2nd quarter with Snell, Mirotic, Mohammed, Moore and McDermott.

Nick Friedell

Snell and McDermott getting some early run tonight. Bulls need offense from somewhere. The pair is on floor with Mirotic, Brooks and Gibson.

Joe Cowley

The Bulls player with the lowest? McDermott at -62, which is 389th in the Association.

Joe Cowley

So why are Dougie McBuckets and Mirotic only getting 5 minutes of run when everyone is healthy? "You got to know your opponent.'' Thibs.

Joe Cowley

McDermott needs to play with confidence and whatever happens, happens.

Joe Cowley

Dougie McBuckets is in a dark place right now. Looks lost. Looks confused on when to shoot, when to pass. Tentative.

Chris Herring

McDermott looks a hot mess lately.

Joe Cowley

That Snell missed jumper? He had a wide open McDermott to his left.

Joe Cowley

McBuckets now on his way in.

Ailene Voisin

Rookies Nik Stauskas and Bulls' Doug McDermott sat on press table chatting before game. Asked who was better shooter, pointed toward other

James Ham

This just happened in Sacramento. .@Nik Stauskas .@Doug McDermott http://t.co/SYwpeklwZF

More NBA2K15 talk from McDermott and Mirotic - chicagosuntimes.com/sports/how-do-…

Joe Cowley

McDermott and Mirotic finding out life in NBA2K15 is way easier than the day-to-day real-life NBA grind - read it - chicagosuntimes.com/sports/doug-mc…

Nick Friedell

McBuckets sets record straight. RT @ESPNChiBulls: McDermott says he's not a photobomber es.pn/1uKefK3

Joe Cowley

Might not be getting the playing time, but Dougie McBuckets is getting photo bombing on lockdown chicagosuntimes.com/sports/doug-mc…

Joe Cowley

Over the summer, people thought I was nuts for saying Love wasn't worth Gibson and McDermott in a trade. Reality check for Love addicts.

KC Johnson

Little should surprise about rookie stats. Nevertheless, this does to me: McDermott and Mirotic combined 12-for-38 from 3-point range.

Lang Whitaker

Video of Doug McDermott photobombing CP3, Blake Griffin, Kid Ink wp.me/p14ch1-4Ym

Nick Friedell

McDermott is getting clean looks -- he's just missing them. Seems to be a common theme in the last week or two.

Robert Morales

Crawford makes cold-blooded 18-foot fall-away with McDermott all over him. Clippers lead 27-26 with 8:52 left in half #ClippersVsBulls

Nick Friedell

McDermott playing with a lot more confidence offensively tonight. He's got to keep working on the defensive end to gain more of Thibs' trust

KC Johnson

Second-half minutes for McDermott but not for Mirotic, who got roasted by Thibodeau for his pick-and-roll defense, or lack thereof, in 1st

Steve Aschburner

Denver's Gary Harris, guy for whom Doug McDermott was traded on draft night, scored 13 vs. IND Friday. McDermott just got 3-ball for Bulls.

Tas Melas

Good piece on Bulls rookie Doug McDermott adjusting by @outsidethenba. Best line: "I don't call myself McBuckets" — cbsprt.co/14qNpMU

Royce Young

Bulls' Doug McDermott navigates new NBA reality, by @outsidethenba cbsprt.co/14qNpMU

Sean Highkin

Thibs on McDermott and Mirotic struggling: "I love both of those guys. They're going to be great players in this league."

Tom Haberstroh

After @Andrew Sharp's "Who's Ish Smith?" + Doug McDermott's "Who's James Johnson?" pretty sure '09 Wake team was most forgettable No. 1 ever.

John Gonzalez

The Sixers totally should have drafted Doug McDermott so they could only lose by 70.

Michael Grange

Doug McDermott never had to cover James Johnson at Creighton, and James Johnson knows it.

Tom Haberstroh

Doug McDermott, meet James Johnson.

Payal Doshi

James Johnson picks apart McDermott. #rtz

Jorge Sierra

Rough second quarter for Doug McDermott.

Ryan Wolstat

Raptors getting a boost from James Johnson again. Great defence. Block and forced a McDermott air ball.

Nick Friedell

McDermott continues to look uncomfortable in limited minutes during the last week. Unsure of himself right now on floor -- like most rookies

Scott Howard-Cooper

Ladder: 1 Parker, 2 Payton, 3 McDaniels, 4 Noel, 5 Wiggins, 6 Exum, 7 Bogdanovic, 8 Gordon, 9 McDermott, 10 Napier. on.nba.com/1v3EuwK

Michael Pointer

#Butler officially received letters of intent this morning from Sean McDermott and Nate Fowler. They're Bulldogs. No other LOIs anticipated.

Michael Pointer

#Butler fans: Know recruiting news not been great lately, but no change for Sean McDermott and Nate Fowler. Will sign tomorrow as planned.

Nick Friedell

Overheard on press row after Caron Butler's last jumper: "He's toasting McBuckets."
