Doug McDermott, on if it has been strange coming to work and not seeing Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah: "It's weird," McDermott said after Thursday's practice. "It still doesn't quite feel real. But I think it's for the better. Not saying anything bad about those guys, obviously they meant a lot to this organization and helped me a lot. But I think we just needed a new vibe and I think we got it with these guys. And I just feel like everyone is -- the vibe is different. It's a much better better vibe. Obviously, wish those guys the best in New York."
