Previewing Steven Adams for the Atlanta Hawks

USA TODAY Sports

Meant to get this earlier, but I had a pretty cool opportunity to preview Steven Adams for the Atlanta Hawks' official blog through Hawks.com.

I don't know where Adams will end up, but the Hawks have two first-round picks and could be the team that ends up with him. NBADraft.net has Adams going at No. 15 to the Milwaukee Bucks a few picks ahead of the Hawks' No. 17 and No. 18 selections. That may not be too far off based on Adams' big NBA Combine performance.

At this point, he has to be one of the biggest unknowns in the draft. So much upside, but so little is known of his offensive capabilities at this point. We all know he'll get better - but the question is how much?

In the preview, I talked about his strengths/weaknesses (including, ironically, his lack of a jump shot), an NBA comparison, and a lot more. Be sure to head over and check out my preview on Adams if you've got a minute.
