Bulls' summer squad lost without McDermott

The Bulls' run of summer-league success ended with a thud Saturday. They lost to Sacramento 80-61 while rookie Doug McDermott sat out with a foot injury.

Whether this injury is significant or an excuse to end McDermott's summer workload isn't clear right now. The rookie from Creighton played in four summer games, averaging 18 points, 4 rebounds and 2.8 assists, while shooting .442 from the field.

Tony Snell finished a strong summer league by scoring 20 points against the Kings. He averaged 20 points over five games, shooting .466. Second-round draft pick Cameron Bairstow showed some promise, averaging 10.2 points and 7 rebounds. Simeon grad Lazeric Jones, a 6-1 guard, was the best of the non-roster players, averaging 10.8 points and shooting better than 50 percent from the field.

Meanwhile, the Bulls' expected signing of point guard Aaron Brooks is not yet official, as of Sunday morning.
