In the last draft night at the soon-to-be-vacated Berto Center, the Bulls packaged picks 16 and 19 and a 2015 second-round pick for the rights to (Doug) McDermott, whom they had scouted heavily and the Nuggets drafted with the 11th pick. Though the two-for-one move only saved the Bulls about $329,000, it could make Mike Dunleavy and his expiring $3.3 million deal expendable.

The Bulls also absorbed Anthony Randolph’s expiring $1.825 million deal, which general manager Gar Forman said the Nuggets demanded be included, into a trade exception the Luol Deng deal created. That added salary but spoke to how much the Bulls coveted McDermott, who averaged 26.7 points his senior season at Creighton.
