Doug McDermott is one of the most individually decorated college basketball players ever. He was the national college player of the year in 2014, a three-time consensus first-team All-American from 2012-14, an NCAA scoring champion, and a three-time conference Player of the Year award-winner. Now, he brings his impressive pedigree to Dallas, where his much-needed length and shooting should give a boost to the offense. McDermott is a career 39.2 percent 3-point shooter, and that’s one reason why Mavs GM Donnie Nelson said he’d had eyes on him well before Dallas traded for him on Feb. 8. One other Maverick who’s very familiar with McDermott’s game is Harrison Barnes, who played with McDermott for Ames High School in Iowa. Together they won 53 straight games during their junior and senior seasons, including back-to-back state titles in 2009 and 2010.
