Check out Doug McDermott from last night. McBuckets was lighting it up from the floor to put up 16 points in the Chicago Bulls win in the preseason.

McDermott is making a case to get more playing time. He has shown that he will be a threat on the floor if he gets the opportunity to play. He will knock down the J and will be another player that can crash the boards.

Right now, the rotation has McDermott coming off of the bench, but I am sure he will keep pushing for more minutes. It is only the 4th preseason game and we want to see more of McBuckets on the floor launching them from 3-point land.

I am ready to see this kid in the starting lineup when we open the season. He would be a nice compliment to the other players on the court. We will see if Thibs thinks that way.
