Oklahoma City Thunder forward Doug McDermott is working to improve his game and to add something else to his repertoire.

McDermott doesn’t want to stay the same player and is hard at work to bring his game to the next level.

“I try to add something each summer because I don’t want to stay the same player,” McDermott said, according to Nick Gallo of

McDermott has a lot of room to improve after making a minimal impact during the start of his NBA career. The forward averaged just 6.6 points and 2.2 rebounds in 19.5 minutes over 22 games last season.

“I feel like I can still get a lot better… I’m just more than a spot-up shooter. I know I can move without the ball, and I think that just puts more pressure on them, and it can open up more things for everyone out there,” McDermott said.
