Dillon Brooks Declares for NBA Draft; Hires Agent

After losing sophomore guard Tyler Dorsey to the draft earlier this week, Oregon junior forward Dillon Brooks announced his intentions to enter the 2017 NBA Draft in a video released Wednesday. Brooks has hired an agent per multiple sources.

“I’ve done so much here and wouldn’t be here now without the coaching staff believing in me,” said Brooks. “I wasn’t highly recruited and they believed in me from the start. I’m going to take my talents to the next level and enter the NBA Draft. What we’ve done at Oregon, making my sophomore year and then the final four my junior year, couldn’t have been done without Coach [Dana] Altman, all the other coaches and any of our teammates.”

As the 2016-17 Pac-12 player of the year, Brooks scored 16.1 points per game while shooting 48.8 percent from the field and 36.2 percent from three. He played 109 games in his Oregon career, averaging 14.8 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.6 assists for his career. In its latest mock draft, DraftExpress.com projects Brooks as a mid-second round selection.

Oregon still awaits the decision on whether junior Jordan Bell will declare for the draft. DraftExpress considers Bell a likely mid-second round selection if he decides to declare.
