ANALYSIS: If the draft were based on picking the top athletes only, Adams would probably be a lottery pick. But there is more to being an NBA player than just being a good athlete. Adams is a physical player that goes hard to the basket and is creative enough when he gets there to score in a variety of ways, including an assortment of acrobatic dunks. When his mindset is right, he is a high percentage shooter. He shot 48-percent from the floor as a senior, which was his collegiate low. As a sophomore, Adams shot 54-percent. Adams averaged 17.5 points per game last season, but that could have probably been a little higher if he did not take ill-timed three-pointers. Adams shot a mere 26-percent on his 65 three-point attempts last season. Adams would benefit greatly with a consistent jumper. Teams would have to play off of him a little because of his explosive first step. In the NBA, he is a bit undersized for a shooting guard, but he can make up for that due to his strong rebounding ability. He had eight or more rebounds in a game seven times as a senior. Adams averaged five rebounds a game as a senior and 7.3 as a sophomore. For some reason, his free-throw shooting took a dive his senior year, plummeting to 61-percent. His previous collegiate low was 71-percent as a junior. Adams' defense improved each year at Arizona, and he is an aggressive defender with long arms. As a senior, he averaged 2.6 steals per game, and he is not afraid of contact at the offensive or defensive end. As a sophomore, he averaged 1.5 blocks per game. Not many players can outleap Adams. Adams is likely to fall to the second round, because of his erratic play and streaky outside shooting. He thrives in the open floor but appears terribly inpatient when the game slows down, and that is when he seems to make many mental errors.
