The Bulls got destroyed in this trade. To me this is GarPax destroying the foundation of the team because they are about to get fired. Hoiberg is definitely out at the end of the year. There is a circus going on around this team. It almost feels like DWade came in and just LeBron'd the hell out of this team by having fits bringing Jimmy Butler with him. I've watched a lot of the Bulls this year and I'm glad to see Doug out of there.

He is a much better fit at OKC. That team is actually fun to watch. Not the crap the Bulls trot out there. The pieces that the Bulls got are terrible. Payne is one of the worst guys I've seen regularly play at the NBA level. In the playoffs last year, he was an absolute liability that jacked up shots at the worst times when he spelled Westbrook. He pretty much shot every time he touched it as if he had to prove he belonged in the NBA. Lauvergne is one of the guys that the TNT guys would play 'Who He Play For?'. Honestly, the Bulls got guys who shoot a lot worse than Doug. Morrow is in one of his worst shooting spells, which happens a lot for him.

I'm looking forward to see him in a Thunder jersey. What number he gets to be? I guess we'll find out. 3 belongs to Sabonis, and 11 is Enes Kanter.

EDIT: I see that he is now #25.

Bulls are a complete mess. I thought they had some hope earlier in the season, but things degenerated quickly.

This is the best thing that could have happened for his career. Donovan's a good coach and Westbrook will add serious shot opportunities for Doug.

With both Wade and Butler, they were willing passers a good amount of the time, but the pass always arrived 2 seconds too late if it got there. Westbrook will get it there right on the money and right on time for a guy like Doug.

OKC is +38 when Doug McDermott plays with Russell Westbrook, in 3 games.

Doug is playing starters minutes for the Thunder. Just played the last 6 minutes of the first quarter and the entirety of the second quarter. Mostly at the SG spot as well
