ORLANDO, Fla. — Six former Oregon basketball players will be showcasing their talent at the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas this week. Jordan Bell, Chris Boucher, Dillon Brooks, Elgin Cook and Tyler Dorsey are making their way to Nevada as we speak.
Dylan Ennis had another solid outing for the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday afternoon from the Amway Center. OKC fell to the Dallas Mavericks, 96-75. The Duck alum concluded with nine points, five boards, an assist and a stolen pass.
After starting the summer season 2-0, OKC lost two straight games in the Orlando Pro Summer League. As the Thunder fade, Ennis and his minutes are rising. The Canadian followed his 31-minute performance with 27:57 minutes of action on Wednesday.
Ennis finished 2-for-8 from the floor, including 2-for-6 from downtown a day after shooting 80 percent from behind the arc.
Joe Young and his Indiana Pacers will match-up against Ennis and the Thunder in the Orlando finale on Thursday. Tip is set for 9:00 a.m. PT from Orlando.
Following the game, Ennis will head to the Las Vegas Summer League where he will join the Golden State Warriors until July 17. Not to mention, he will be playing alongside former Ducks Jordan Bell, Elgin Cook and Chris Boucher (injured).
Bell just departed for Vegas from Eugene this afternoon. He will join the Warriors roster for the summer showdown. However, Bell is not trying to earn a roster spot like Ennis. Cook and Boucher could arrive momentarily.
Dillon Brooks is meeting up with his Memphis teammates and the Atlanta Hawks sent Tyler Dorsey off to Nevada, as well. In 24 hours, six Duck stars from the past two years will be in Las Vegas. It should make for an intriguing July.
