Former Ducks Bell and Brooks play well in summer league

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Dotted across the rosters of NBA summer league teams are former Oregon Ducks players.

Three players from the 2016-17 squad, which lost in the NCAA semifinal to North Carolina, were picked in the second round of the NBA draft earlier this month.

Jordan Bell was drafted by the Chicago Bulls and traded to the Golden State Warriors, Dillon Brooks was picked by the Houston Rockets and traded to the Memphis Grizzlies, and Tyler Dorsey was selected by the Atlanta Hawks.

Joining Bell on the Warriors’ summer-league team are former teammates Dylan Ennis and Elgin Cook, who played in the NBA Developmental League last season. Chris Boucher is also on the roster, but he won't play while he rehabs from a left ACL injury.

Before joining the Warriors in Las Vegas, Ennis suited up for the Thunder’s summer-league squad in Orlando. Former Oregon Ducks guard Joe Young, who has played 74 games the past two seasons with the Pacers, played on Indiana's summer-league team in Orlando.

Competition in Orlando wrapped up Thursday, and the Las Vegas summer league began Friday.
