PITTSBURGH (AP) - It's one and done for Pittsburgh center Steven Adams.
The 7-foot freshman from New Zealand says it's in his ``best interest'' to enter the NBA Draft rather than return for his sophomore season. Adams plans to sign with an agent.
Adams started 32 games for Pitt and averaged 7.1 and 6.3 rebounds per game. He led the Panthers with 65 blocks and made 57 percent of his shots.
Considered a project when he signed, Adams improved as the season went on. He had 13 points and 11 rebounds in Pitt's 73-55 loss to Wichita State in the second round of the NCAA tournament.
Adams was the second player to leave the program on Tuesday. Junior guard Trey Zeigler said he was transferring earlier in the day.
