For one former Bull, a dream came true Wednesday, when Will McDonald started his pro career.
The former USF men’s basketball center was part of the Golden State Warriors’ summer league team.
McDonald, who went undrafted this year, led the Bulls with 15.9 points per game and 8.1 rebounds a contest.
The 6-foot-11 forward/center had an impressive showing at the Portsmouth Invitational in April and followed that with a performance at the Chicago pre-draft camp that included a game-winning shot during his team’s final game.
Three-year pro Jason Collier, two-year veteran Mike Dunleavey Jr. and 2003 draft picks Mickael Pietrus and Derrick Zimmerman joined McDonald on the summer team.
In his first contest, McDonald faced the challenge of Big X Player of the Year Brian Cook and the son of NBA Hall of Famer Bill Walton’s son Luke.

The tournament will still be held Nov. 4 — 8, but it will be at Charlotte instead of Tampa.
