McDermott, drafted by the Denver Nuggets with the 11th pick in last month's draft and then traded for two picks to the Bulls, was a first-team pick for the summer league all-star team along with second-year swingman Tony Snell. McDermott averaged 18 points a game and shot 44 percent from three-point range in Vegas.
The 22-year-old McDermott was the national college player of the year when he led the nation in scoring at 26.7 points a game as a senior at Creighton.
Also on Tuesday, McDermott was selected for the USA Select Team, along with Bulls teammate Jimmy Butler. They will be part of a 13-player team that will practice against the U.S. National Team as it prepares for the World Cup, which begins on Aug. 30.
