The Minnesota Timberwolves may have done some impressive work during the 2023 NBA Draft, but the work does not stop there. This is a team that must assemble a competitive Summer League roster as well. That is something that does not get a ton of press interest, as there are bigger names to splash across the headlines, and bigger stories to share this time of year.
But that is not our philosophy here at Dunking with Wolves. Every NBA prospect has gotten to this point, clung to their dream to compete as a professional basketball player, and deserves to have that moment in the spotlight.
This was not a week’s worth of working out in the gym. Quite likely, it is the culmination of years of working out, sometimes injured, many times with no signs of improvement. Imagine the commitment and dedication required to stay focused for so long.
It is paying off for Brendan Adams
We are thrilled to announce that all the work is indeed paying off for George Washington point guard Brendan Adams, who is the first name to be reportedly signed to compete for the Minnesota Timberwolves Summer League team.
And so, we have a new name to roll off our tongue. So what can we tell you about him?
The truth is that he is a 6-foot-4 205-pound point guard, which is a solid size for a backcourt player. He can score points and has developed the ability to score from almost anywhere on the basketball court, including finding the eye of a marksman from long range:
Adams is more of a combination guard at this point in his development, as he is just as capable of creating shots off-ball as he is in distributing the basketball to the open shooter, running the floor, and facilitating the play of others.
The fun part is that we will have a chance to witness how effective Brendan Adams is among his peers this summer, as the Timberwolves have their first player on the Summer League roster. My hope is that Adams not only can score points in large numbers but that he has a knack for getting the basketball into the hands of his teammates as well.
Brendan Adams is the first, and he will likely be joined by recently drafted forward Leonard Miller. More players will be signed, so stay tuned . . .
