NEW YORK – Former Little Cyclone Doug McDermott became the fourth Ames High alum to hear his name called in the NBA draft Thursday.
McDermott helped Ames High win two state championships.
The three-time all-American at Creighton has a new team and it’s not the one we first thought.
The Nuggets picked McDermott at 11 setting off cheers at Wells Fargo Arena in anticipation of the McDermott-Barnes exhibition game. But not long after Doug hugged his dad and the commissioner, he learned he had been traded to Iowa’s most popular NBA team: the Chicago Bulls.
