Dillon Brooks


Dillon Brooks was a key contributor to Canada’s historic bronze medal-winning team at the 2023 FIBA Men’s Basketball World Cup. His 39 points in the bronze medal game against the United States set a FIBA World Cup record for most points scored in a medal-winning game and a Canadian Senior Men’s National Team record for most points in a single game. Brooks was named Best Defensive Player as Canada won its first ever FIBA Men’s World Cup medal. Brooks was among the players who committed to the national team in 2022 in the hopes of qualifying Canada for its first men’s Olympic basketball tournament since Sydney 2000. 

Brooks had previously been part of Canada’s first ever podium in men’s basketball at the Pan American Games, helping the team to silver at Toronto 2015. Canada defeated the United States in overtime in the semifinal to secure a top-two finish.  

As a junior, Brooks led the 2014 FIBA Americas U18 Championship in scoring as Canada won the silver medal. He was the team’s leading scorer in their fifth-place finish at the 2015 FIBA U19 World Championship. At the time, both results were Canada’s best-ever in those tournaments. 

Brooks played collegiately at Oregon University. As a junior in 2017, he was a Second-Team All-American selection and the PAC-12 Player of the Year. As a sophomore in 2016, he led the Ducks to the PAC-12 regular season and Conference Tournament titles. He was a two-time All-PAC-12 First Team honouree and was named to the PAC-12 All-Freshman team in 2015. 

Brooks was selected in the second round of the 2017 NBA Draft, 45th overall, by the Houston Rockets but was immediately dealt to the Memphis Grizzlies. He played there for five seasons, reaching the playoffs three times. He was named to the NBA All-Defensive Second-Team 2023. He was part of a five-team trade in 2023 that sent him back to the Rockets.
