Jordan Bell to hire an agent and enter the NBA Draft

Oregon's Jordan Bell will enter the NBA draft according to a report by ESPN. The news was expected as Bell was the star of Oregon's run to the Final Four this season. The report indicates that Bell will hire an agent and thereby terminating his amateur status. The 6-10 center was the Most Valuable Player during the Midwest Regional following Oregon's 74-60 win over Kansas on March 25.

Jordan Bell becomes the fourth underclassman to leave the Ducks program. Tyler DorseyDillon Brooks declared earlier this month and guard Casey Benson has opted to transfer to Grand Canyon University in Phoenix to pursue a Masters Degree in graduate school. 

Oregon also graduated Chris Boucher and Dylan Ennis from the 2016-17 roster.

Bell averaged 10.9 points per game, 8.8 rebounds and blocked eight shots the game against Kansas.
