The Chicago Bulls' official Twitter account eventually confirmed the deal:
Three-point shooting was one of the Bulls' biggest problems last year. They finished 26th in made three-pointers and 24th in three-point percentage in the 2013-14 season. In McDermott, Chicago receives one of the best long-range specialists in the draft.
