On the same day he signed a two-year contract with the Golden State Warriors, Jordan Bell made quite the splash in his NBA debut.
Bell had this spectacular chase-down block Saturday night in a summer league game against the 76ers that brought back memories of his days at Oregon.

The big man finished his first game with 8 points on 4-of-7 shooting, 4 rebounds and 2 blocks in 13 minutes of action.
After a dynamic junior campaign in Eugene in which he averaged 10.9 points and 8.8 rebounds per game, the rim protector was selected by the Warriors in the second round of the NBA draft after the team bought the pick.
Bell’s blocking prowess was on full display during March Madness. Despite his second-round draft status, he certainly has a chance to make an impact off the bench for the Warriors in his rookie season.
