Bam Adebayo is now impressing with his jump shot

06/19/2017 04:31 PM

Bam Adebayo held his final pre-draft workout on Sunday with the Charlotte Hornets. Adebayo was impressive in his workout, especially from beyond the three-point line. During a three-point drill at the end of the workout, Adebayo hit 13-of-25 from beyond the arc, showing off a skillset that wasn’t displayed at Kentucky.

“I’ve been shooting the ball since I was 12 years old. I was always getting better,” Adebayo told Rick Bonnell in an interview with the Charlotte Observer. ““I wasn’t asked to do it (from the perimeter) at Kentucky because we all played our parts; we all sacrificed certain stuff.”

Charlotte owns the 11th overall pick in the upcoming NBA draft. Clayton Abernathy and Bradley McKee discuss how an improved jumper could take Adebayo’s game to new heights at the next level.
