Oregon junior Jordan Bell announced his decision to enter the 2017 NBA Draft Tuesday per Rise Long Beach.

“Oregon has become my home,” said Bell in a statement released by Rise Long Beach. “I’ve gained lifelong friends and made so many unforgettable memories here. After talking it over with my family and friends, I have decided that now is the best time for me to pursue my dream of playing in the NBA. With that being said, I’m going to enter my name in the NBA Draft and plan to sign with an agent.”

Bell is projected to be the #38 pick in the draft according to DraftExpress.

At 22 years old, Bell averaged 10.9 points, 8.8 rebounds, and 2.3 blocks per game this season. He was critical for the Ducks as they made their first Final Four since 1939.

Bell leaves Oregon as the Pac-12’s Defensive Player of the Year this past season. He blocked a school-record 235 shots in three seasons while also scoring 814 career points, recording 719 rebounds, and grabbing 111 steals.
