BIO

The Thunder had the number 12 overall selection in the 2013 NBA Draft, a rarity for a team that won 60 games the previous season. With the pick, the team selected Adams who provides the team a rare combinations of physical gifts – size, toughness and dexterity. An intense and committed worker, Adams has spent the year with the Thunder coaching staff learning the finer points of team defense to be best equipped for his role this season as the team’s backup center and his own long-term development. A tenacious rebounder and selfless screener, Adams brings physicality to the game in his time in the rotation to go along with his athletic gifts that allows him to block shots, run the floor and finish at the rim. This season, he has learned from elder statesmen like Nick Collison and Kendrick Perkins and stepped in as the team’s starting center for 20 games.
