Bam Adebayo becomes the final lottery pick in the 2017 NBA draft as the Miami Heat selected him with the No. 14 pick. Adebayo, who was believed to be on the fringe of the first round just a few weeks ago, really impressed teams leading up to the draft with his size, athleticism and jump shot.

Adebayo averaged 13 points and eight rebounds per game last season at Kentucky. He was named All-SEC Second Team and a member of the All-SEC Tournament Team.

Miami finished ninth in the East last season with a 41-41 record.
