Update: Gibson and McDermott to Thunder for Cameron Payne and others

By Cliff Brunt, AP Sports Writer

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) —  Just before today’s NBA trade deadline, the Chicago Bulls have sent forwards Taj Gibson and Doug McDermott to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Mark Bartelstein, the agent for Taj Gibson and Doug McDermot has confirmed in an email to The Associated Press, that the Bull players were being traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder. In return the Thunder will send Cameron Payne, Joffrey Lauvergne and Anthony Morrow to Chicago. According to Bartelstein’s email, the Bulls also will send a 2018 second-round pick to the Thunder.

Gibson adds the athleticism and experience to the front line that the Thunder lost when they traded Serge Ibaka in last year’s draft. McDermott improves the Thunder’s shaky outside shooting.

Payne has been considered a promising backup to All-Star Rusell Westbrook,  but had missed much of the season with a foot injury. Morrow, primarily a 3-point shooter, lost playing time to rookie Alex Abrines this season.
