The Houston Rockets have traded the rights of Dillon Brooks to the Memphis Grizzlies. Originally, Houston selected Brooks with the 45th overall pick in the second round of the 2017 NBA Draft.

Moments after his college teammate Jordan Bell was traded from the Chicago Bulls to the Golden State Warriors, Brooks was shipped off to Tennessee.

Overall, three Ducks were selected within seven picks of one another in the second round. It began with Bell at the No. 38 slot and ended with Brooks at No. 45.

Dylan Ennis and Chris Boucher await the free agent phone call if they are not called on Thursday night from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

It is almost a better situation to NOT be drafted at this point. The two former Ducks could choose their destination if they are not selected. That is a great advantage.
