Moving on from Taylor Swift, Doug McDermott sets his sights on Kendall Jenner

It looks like Doug McDermott has moved on from Taylor Swift.

The second-year forward was recently in LA with the Bulls and actually got recognized by a TMZ Sports reporter.

McDermott immediately expressed his love for the Kardashians and Jenners, laughing about Rob Kardashian and saying Kendall Jenner is his favorite member of the family:

"Hook it up," McDermott told the TMZ Sports reporter, before saying he might get some sweet/suite tickets for Kendall.

No word on if McDermott ran into Kendall in Beverly Hills, but if things did ever take off between the two, McDermott would likely have a lot to talk about with Caitlyn (formerly Bruce) Jenner, one of the greatest athletes ever.

Of course, there's also the professional athlete connection to the Kardashian side with Lamar Odom, Reggie Bush, Miles Austin and fellow hoopster Kris Humphries.

Kendall Jenner and Harry Styles reportedly had a thing goin' on, but the TMZ guy said she was single and isn't that, like, his job to know?

Styles also dated T-Swift, so it would appear he and McDermott have the same taste in women.

The Bulls are mired in their worst slump of the season, but at least Dougie Fresh is still trying to have some fun off the court.

Three Things to Watch: Bulls-76ers

The Bulls square off against the Sixers tonight on NBC Sports Chicago, with coverage beginning at 6:30 with Bulls Pregame Live. Here are three things to watch as the Bulls begin the stretch run of their regular season.

1. The new rotation: Most of the Bulls’ rotation looks the same, but the addition of David Nwaba, Cristiano Felicio and Cameron Payne will have a different feel. The Bulls clearly want to get a look at these guys before the end of the regular season, meaning they’re not just going to get sporadic minutes. They’ll have to play through their mistakes, play out-matched at times and be put in uncomfortable situations. But the Bulls need to see what they have, especially in Payne, who has missed the entire season to this point with a broken foot.

2. Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons: They’re quite the 1-2 punch and have the Sixers looking at their first playoff appearance since Derrick Rose hadn’t yet torn an ACL. Yeah, that’s a long time. Embiid just finished his first All-Star appearance (starting in his second year) and Simmons is the front runner for Rookie of the Year. The Bulls will have their hands full with these two. Luckily…

3. Kris Dunn is back: The Bulls wanted to get Dunn some run before heading to All-Star Weekend to play in the Rising Stars Challenge, and he looked healthy in that thumping against the Raptors last week. The good news is John Paxson says Dunn won’t be on a minutes limit, which means he’s healthy. That, of course, is more important than how he’s playing. It’ll be fun to see him, LaVine and Markkanen play together down the stretch. Their numbers together aren’t great, but the Bulls are 2-2 with all three in the lineup, and tanking or not…it’s more fun to watch when those three are rolling.
