Dub Nation probably has some fond memories of Bell from the circumstances of his arrival and the memorable moments he produced on (and off) the court. Bell was drafted by the Bulls in the second round of the 2017 draft before being quickly traded to the Warriors for $3.5 million in cash considerations.
A true “Full Circle” moment for Jordan Bell. He was drafted by the Bulls in the second round, then was traded to the Warriors for cash considerations. After a few stops, he will finally get his chance to play in Chicago this season. https://t.co/6qwkyAxoJ5— Larry Hawley (@HawleySports) December 29, 2021

Since those days he’s bounced around from the Minnesota Timberwolves, to the Memphis Grizzlies, to the Washington Wizards, before coming back to the Dubs at the end of last season to provide depth chart support. He’s been in the Santa Cruz Warriors system since then, playing some pretty good ball.
