McDermott, Snell to play summer league
By Nick Friedell
First-round pick Doug McDermott will lead the Chicago Bulls summer league team into action as it begins play on Saturday in Las Vegas.
The Bulls' summer league roster was announced Tuesday and includes last year's first-round pick Tony Snell and this year's second-round selection Cameron Bairstow. Bulls assistant Adrian Griffin will be the head coach with assistants Andy Greer, Ed Pinckney, Mike Wilhelm and Coby Karl.
Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said on draft night that he expected Derrick Rose to practice with the summer league team, but he wouldn't play. The Bulls open the summer league slate on Saturday night against the Los Angeles Clippers.
