The Denver Nuggets selected Creighton forward Doug McDermott with the 11th overall pick in the NBA draft.

Multiple online reports say that McDermott may be headed elsewhere, likely to the Chicago Bulls, in a trade.

McDermott scouting report from NBA.com:

When it comes to scoring at the NCAA level, not many have ever done it as well as Creighton’s Doug McDermott. And when it comes to the past 17 years, no one has done it better.

McDermott leaves Creighton as this year's NCAA scoring champion and college's top overall points leader over the past two years. His 3,150 career points are the most in the NCAA by a single player since 1997-98, and he officially has the fifth-most total points in NCAA history, according to the Associated Press.

He’s a level-headed player who understands how to make the right play, and he’s also an incredibly gifted shooter. Aside from Michigan’s Nik Stauskas, there aren’t many players who can match McDermott’s form and ability from the field.
