Dillon Brooks has signed his first professional contract with the Memphis Grizzlies. Per team policy, the terms of the deal are not disclosed.

The Grizzlies selected Brooks in the second round with the 45th pick overall. Brooks was one of three Ducks selected in the NBA Draft, along with Jordan Bell and Tyler Dorsey. Bell was drafted by the Bulls with the 38th pick, but had his rights purchased by the Warriors. Dorsey was picked 41st overall by the Atlanta Hawks.

Brooks averaged 16.1 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.7 assists in his junior year at Oregon, helping the Ducks reach the Final Four against North Carolina.

In six summer league games with the Grizzlies this year, Brooks averaged 12.2 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game, averaging 23 minutes per game of playing time.

His most impressive effort came against the Utah Jazz, scoring 24 points on 9-for-11 shooting, including shooting 4-for-5 from beyond the arc, as the Grizzlies edged out the Jazz 84-81 in overtime.
