MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - The Memphis Grizzlies have selected shooting guard Jordan Adams of UCLA with the 22nd pick in Thursday's NBA draft.
Adams, a 6-foot-5 shooting guard who played two seasons at UCLA, could help fill a scoring void for the Grizzlies. He is a known scorer and with 3-point range. He also has a reputation for being an adequate defender, which would fit into the mindset of one of the best defensive teams in the league.
Adams, a first team All-Pac 12 selection last season, averaged 17.4 points, 5.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists. He also added 2.6 steals a game. His 168 career steals are seventh in the Bruins history, including a single season best of 95 steals.
