Pitt's Steven Adams Continues Racking Up Numbers In Greentree Summer League

Incoming freshman Steven Adams got off to a good start in the Greentree Summer League. That fast start has only continued as the Pitt recruit continues putting up impressive totals.

Adams has had a few more strong games since we last checked in with him and is now averaging 12 points and 13.5 rebounds a game (courtesy of Panther Lair). As I've contested a few times over the past year, Adams doesn't appear to be a scoring machine. But he is capable offensively and a superb rebounder and defensive presence.

With Trey Zeigler being eligible this season and returnees Lamar Patterson, J.J. Moore, Tray Woodall, and Lamar Patterson, I expect there to be a solid scoring punch. While it would help if Adams can provide a bit of offensive support in the post, Pitt, as a whole, doesn't really need him to do a ton. But what they do need are the things he excels at - defense and rebounding. Talib Zanna should be a bit better this season, but after that, the Panthers are pretty thin in the frontcourt with Dante Taylor and Malcolm Gilbert.

It's only a summer league, but Adams is holding his own against decent competition.
