As expected, Steven Adams will participate in the NBA Draft Combine, which will be held on Wednesday and Thursday in Chicago.
Adams has to be one of the great unknowns in the draft. As such, his combine performance is going to be scrutinized quite a bit.
I mentioned this before, but I'm not sure if Adams will be helped by the Combine. Some of his greatest strengths such as getting out and running during a fast break and rebounding aren't going to be measured well. That's stuff that will really have to come out in his game tape. And where Adams could struggle is in one on one battles when/if he works out for teams. He doesn't have go to moves, doesn't shoot particularly well, and could have a hard time proving he has much of an offensive game.
Adams will still get picked, but I'm not sure if the Combine will be something that helps him a lot.
The other thing to factor in is that we don't know if he'll do all the skill workouts. He may just do the testing and interview portion like several of the elite guys will do, according to CBS Sports' Jeff Goodman.
