Doug McDermott traded from Chicago Bulls to Oklahoma City Thunder

Doug McDermott traded from Chicago Bulls to Oklahoma City Thunder

Gibson had been with the Bulls for the entirety of his seven-year career, and the veteran emerged as a locker room leader in Chicago. He is averaging 11.6 points and 7.0 rebounds in 55 starts this season.

The Thunder add some grit in Gibson and some much needed offensive punch in McDermott while not giving up much other than a young point guard with some potential in Payne.

McDermott was drafted by the Denver Nuggets in the 2014 draft, but was traded to Chicago shortly after.

Queens: Cow Runs Loose After Slaughterhouse Escape But Is Recaptured
Although the animal was sedated with darts, it managed to continue evading other attempts to corner it until about 12:30 p.m. According to NBC 4 in NY , initial details as to where the cow came from and how it got loose were not available.

The deal gets worse for Chicago when one considers what they gave up to land McDermott in the first place: two first-rounders and three second-rounders. He was in the a year ago of a contract that paid him $9 million, and the Thunder are paying a low price to get him for the last 25 games of their season. He was a great scorer and passer at Murray State, but he hasn't shown an ability to get to the rim like he did in college and he's struggled with his slight frame on defense. He's also dealing with foot injuries. Morrow, primarily a 3-point shooter, lost playing time to rookie Alex Abrines this season.

Payne is the designated backup to Westbrook at point guard, Lauvergne is part of the big man rotation and Morrow plays spot minutes off the bench as a long-range shooting specialist.

Payne, 22, was selected 14th overall in 2015 by the Thunder and in 77 career games is averaging 5.3 points and 2.0 assists.
