Dylan Ennis has signed on with both the Oklahoma City Thunder and Golden State Warriors for the 2017 Summer League in Las Vegas and Orlando. Talk about expanding your options.

Just when you thought life couldn’t get any better for a host of NBA-bound Ducks. After Ennis signed on to play with the Thunder in the summer, he signed a similar deal with the world champions.

This is an unprecedented move that not many prospects have an opportunity at during their career. At times, a player in the Canadian’s position would be worse-off if they were actually drafted late in the second round. That path, they would be steered in a certain direction even if the situation wasn’t ideal for the player.

For a free agent that was NOT drafted by a NBA team, they have more flexibility. Not to mention, the player can choose exactly the right system for their game. It almost works out better for free agents vs players chosen at the end of the draft.

Ennis will now play for BOTH teams during the summer league showcase. He has literally doubled his work load, but at the same time he has expanded an opportunity at his dream.

The former Oregon guard will run with the Thunder from July 1-6 in Orlando.

Then, he will travel to Las Vegas for the Warriors from July 7-17. There will be no breaks for Ennis this summer.

In the end, the Thunder are the perfect landing spot for Ennis. However, joining former Duck teammates Jordan Bell, Chris Boucher and Elgin Cook (Warriors G-League affiliate) would make for an interesting mix in the Bay Area.

We will have a complete breakdown from every game a Duck participates in this summer from Las Vegas and Orlando. It may be hot outside, but the temperature inside the gym is sure to soar this July.
