Chicago Bulls star Dwyane Wade recently singled out new teammate Doug McDermott as having potential for a breakout year.
Wade spoke to the media Wednesday about the upcoming season for the Bulls, and told several outlets about the former Creighton star's chances of upping his game this year.
Wade, a three-time NBA champion and 12-time All-Star who is entering his first season with the Bulls, noted McDermott's shooting ability and said he's been impressed throughout training camp.
Here are a few tweets detailing Wade's comments:

Maybe Wade is just being nice since McDermott gave up his No. 3 jersey, which Wade has been wearing since he entered the league in 2003. McDermott will now wear No. 11.
