NBA Draft 2014: Memphis Grizzlies select Jordan Adams with the 22nd overall pick

New, comments

The Memphis Grizzlies go with offense for their only pick in the NBA Draft, will they keep it or trade it?

Spruce Derden-USA TODAY Sports

The Memphis Grizzlies have selected Jordan Adams, 6'5", SG from UCLA, with the twenty-second (#22) overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft.

Reaction from Joe Mullinax of GBB

This will be the lone pick for the Grizzlies unless they are able to swing a trade back into the late first round or the second round of the draft.

From Kevin Yeung of GBB:

UCLA guard Jordan Adams is a scorer through and through, ranking as one of college basketball's best last season with a 17.4 PPG average and a 0.60 TS%. He's athletic and active off the ball, but the outside jumper is a touch inconsistent. Adams should give the Grizzlies' bench a scoring punch, but while the upside is definitely there, it remains to be seen just how ready he is to play minutes for this team.

There is a strong chance the Grizzlies trade this player to move back and pick up other assets.
