Tyler Dorsey to Enter NBA Draft
Tyler Dorsey will leave the Oregon Ducks and will enter the 2017 NBA Draft.
Oregon Ducks star Tyler Dorsey will leave college basketball and enter his name in the 2017 NBA Draft after making the announcement via Twitter. The Greek-American had a tremendous season with Oregon, leading his team to the NCAA Final-4 while finishing as the tournament's highest scorer.
According to Jonathan Givony from DraftExpress, if Dorsey is not selected in the draft Olympiacos will serve as a great back-up plan for the 21-year old. According to Givony, Dorsey was offered a big contract last season by the Erythrolefki and could very well join the Greek Champions if the NBA does not work out.
Dorsey is a Greek-American with dual citizenship (United States and Greece) and a Greek passport, due to his mother's Greek background. Dorsey's mother was born to a Greek father and Israeli mother.
Dorsey was called up to the Greek National Basketball Team last year, but did not make the final 12-man roster for the Pre-Olympic Qualifying Tournament. He is looked at as one of the future stars of the National Team.
