Forward Jordan Bell was chosen No. 38 overall by the Chicago Bulls, before begin traded to the Golden State Warriors.

Even though Bell was traded to Golden State, he is the first Duck to be drafted by the Bulls.

Bell averaged 10.9 points and 8.8 rebounds this season for the Ducks and is the career shot-block leader for the program.

With the 41st overall pick, the Atlanta Hawks selected guard Tyler Dorsey.

Forward Dillon Brooks was selected 45th overall by the Houston Rockets. He was then traded to the Memphis Grizzlies.

Brooks averaged 16.1 points per game for the Ducks during the regular season and helped lead Oregon to an undefeated mark at home that extended the NCAA-best active home win streak to 42 games.
