Now that Creighton Blue Jays’ forward Doug McDermott’s college career has come to an end, he has shifted his attention towards the NBA Draft.
Th first step he has taken is to hire an agent.

Despite his team’s 85-55 blowout loss to the Baylor Bears in the third round of the NCAA Tournament on Sunday night, McDermott’s stock is on the rise.
Matt Moore of CBS Sports is one of the pundits who thinks McDermott could continue to rise and has a couple of comparisons for him.
When you look at McDermott’s overal body of work, you have to like his chances of translating. By all accounts, he seems more Ryan Anderson or Antawn Jamison than Adam Morrison.
The 6’8, 223-pound McDermott is ranked first among seniors, 11th overall and is projected to be the 10th overall pick, according to Draft Express.
McDermott averaged 26.7 points, 7.0 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game this season. He shot 52.6% from the field, 44.9% from beyond the arc and 86.4% from the free throw line.
McDermott never shot below 52.5% from the field or 40.5% from three during his four-year career.
