OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - The former roommate of Chicago Bulls forward Doug McDermott is preparing to sell clothes that the basketball player left behind in Nebraska.

The Omaha World-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1syOevr ) Mike Vandevoort is selling about 200 items of clothing and shoes this weekend to benefit the Northstar youth basketball program. The former Creighton University player’s gear will be sold in Omaha on Saturday morning.

McDermott left the items in late April after he moved to Chicago to begin preparation for the NBA draft.

Vandevoort says McDermott approved of the idea, which started out as a joke. He says the sale is a chance for McDermott to give back to the community that supported him over the past four years.

The items include shorts, T-shirts, sweatshirts and workout shirts.
