OKC Thunder’s Steven Adams just named NBA All-Rookie second team
OKLAHOMA CITY – OKC Thunder center Steven Adams has been named to the NBA All-Rookie second team.
Adams played in every regular season game but one, starting 20, in his debut season in the NBA.
The New Zealand native averaged just over three points and four rebounds during the regular season for Oklahoma City.
Adams became the first Thunder rookie to record a double-double, score 10 points and pull down 10 rebounds, since Serge Ibaka in 2010.
Adams became the first New Zealand native picked in the first round of the NBA Draft; he was drafted out of Pittsburgh by the Thunder last season.
