After graduating from college, instead of doing the normal move-out thing and saying goodbye to four-year friends and having one last party, the former Creighton star got drafted by the Chicago Bulls.

As for McDermott, he was well aware of the noise out there about Love, and also aware that his name is attached to it. “I didn’t really pay attention to it much,’’ McDermott said. “I think rumors happen a lot. There’s been a lot this offseason. So you’ve just got to stay patient. You can’t really read into that stuff. I’m just focused on what I can do to become better.’’ That’s also why he admitted to staying away from asking his new organization about it. “To be honest, I get asked about it. I don’t really ask anyone,’’ McDermott said. “I try to stay off Twitter and I think a lot of people ask me or text me through my friends. But I just ignore it. Whatever happens, happens.’’ Chicago Sun-Times

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
