   2015 NBA Summer League Rosters - Brooklyn
2015-07-04

A 6'2 scoring guard, Adams is trying to emulate David Logan and go from Division 2 Indianapolis right to the highest levels of professional basketball. And he's doing a bloody good job of it. In fact, he's already done it. A scoring machine, Adams has worked his way to the Spanish ACB in three short years after graduating. He led Division 2 in scoring as a senior with 23.2 points per game, followed it up with 18.9 points per game with Guaiqueries in Venezuela, followed that up with 19.3 points per game in the Ukraine with Kryvbasket, followed that with 18.0 points per game with Bremerhaven in Germany, and followed that up with 18.3 points per game with Nancy in France. There aren't many more levels to go up after that - Nancy were a Euroleague team this year - and after a mid-season move to the ACB and Laboral, Adams is now knocking on the NBA's door. Adams is not just a scorer - he's also a high assist guy, a very good rebounder for his size, and a decent defender with great hands. He's streaky as a shooter and takes some bad ones, but such hot streaks can be extremely hot, and although he is small and does little at the basket, his energy and dynamicism make him a pest on both ends. Adams is fast, athletic, energetic and relentlessly aggressive, and he is becoming one of the better American point guards not in the NBA. Be prepared for a LOT of turnovers, however.
