A former Creighton Bluejays superstar is on the move.

Chicago Bulls forward Doug McDermott was traded on Thursday to the Oklahoma City Thunder. The move was made prior to the 2017 NBA Trade Deadline and will give McDermott another opportunity to make moves in the Association.

McDermott was sent to OKC alongside longtime Bull Taj Gibson and a 2018 second round draft pick in exchange for Joffrey Lauvergne and Anthony Morrow. This was first reported by Shams Charania of The Vertical.

In his career thus far, McDermott has averaged 8.2 points and 2.3 rebounds per game while shooting 44.5 percent from the field and 39.9 percent from the 3-point line.
