UCLA's Jordan Adams Selected 22nd Overall By The Memphis Grizzlies

Ed Szczepanski-USA TODAY Sports

The Bruins have another player drafted as Jordan Adams is selected by Memphis with the 22nd pick.

The Bruins have their second player selected in the NBA Draft as Jordan Adams is nabbed by the Memphis with the 22nd pick in the 1st round. Adams was a prolific player as a Bruin in just two seasons, scoring 1,131 points (16.4 points per game) and breaking UCLA's single season steals record (92 in 2013-14) by 13 over Cameron Dollar's old record.

Adams had originally been reported to be entering the draft process without hiring an agent (leaving the possibility of a return to UCLA after testing the water). Late in the cycle he surprised many as he went all-in on his future and officially declared for the NBA Draft.

Adams made headlines for the wrong reasons in the pre-draft process after a borderline disastrous showing at the NBA Combine. Fortunately for Jordan, there is more to basketball than just athleticism (still an extremely important part of any sport). Adams can shoot from anywhere on the court and that plays at any level.

By going to Memphis, Jordan should be able to have a chance to become an important scorer for the team. Even coming off the bench, it is tough for me to see a scenario where Jordan isn't able to drain a few baskets  for the 5-10 years and get a couple steals and rebounds.

Memphis is looking for scoring and with Jordan they'll get it.  While many are surprised he went before Kyle Anderson, others see him as the MVP for UCLA the last two years.  Good luck and Congratulations Jordan!
