The Oklahoma City Thunder had a lottery pick due to the James Harden trade. With the selection, the Thunder took Steven Adams — a freshman out of Pittsburgh. Originally, he is from the country of New Zealand.
While this is a good pick because Adams has a lot of potential, factoring in Harden going to Houston makes the overall trade look terrible. How do you trade Harden for spare parts? I still don’t understand that deal.
For the Harden trade to look good, Adams is going to have to be a great, great player. Good luck, Steven.
