Canadian forward Dillon Brooks was selected at 45th overall by the Houston Rockets in the 2017 NBA Draft on Thursday, and was then immediately traded to the Memphis Grizzlies.
Brooks, a native of Mississauga, Ont., was named the Pac-12 player of the year this past season. The Oregon Ducks star averaged 16.1 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.7 assists in the 2016-17 campaign.
Brooks was the first Canadian off the board, and it is the eighth straight year that a Canadian has been selected at an NBA draft.
His Oregon teammate and fellow Canadian Chris Boucher has reportedly signed a contract with the Golden State Warriors.
Boucher, a native of Montreal, averaged 11.8 points, 6.1 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per game in his senior season with the Ducks.
