Doug McDermott soon will be wearing No. 3 again.
The Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday posted on Twitter that McDermott would return to the number he wore during his record-breaking Creighton career, and also his first two NBA seasons with the Chicago Bulls. McDermott was traded from Chicago to Oklahoma City during last season, and wore No. 25 in his 22 games with the Thunder.
McDermott also had started the 2016-17 season wearing No. 11 after Chicago acquired Dwyane Wade.
McDermott averaged 6.6 points and 2.2 rebounds in his 22 games with Oklahoma City, and shot 36.2 percent from 3-point range. He was averaging a career-best 10.2 points a game with the Bulls starting the 2016-17 season before the trade.
Domantas Sabonis was wearing No. 3 when McDermott joined the Thunder. Sabonis is now listed as No. 11 on the Oklahoma City roster.
At Creighton, McDermott was synonymous with No. 3 as a 3,150-point scorer, two-time All-American and the 2014 national player of the year.
