Oklahoma City Thunder

Adams strong again in bounce-back win for Thunder

Lofty centre Adams had a second straight double-double, notching 17 points and 11 rebounds, as the Thunder took their season record to 2-2 with the victory at Chesapeake Arena on Thursday (NZ time).

The 24-year-old made eight of his 13 shots and added two blocks and two steals in a typically busy all-round effort.

It was a welcome result for Oklahoma City, who started their 2017-18 campaign with a win against the New York Knicks but had since gone down to both the Utah Jazz and Minnesota Timberwolves.

Adams on the move?

Adams' team, the Oklahoma City Thunder, are reportedly chasing the signature of New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony according to The Ringer.

For the Thunder to acquire Anthony, a 10-time NBA All Star, they'd need to trade one of their players to free up salary cap space.

Last year Adams signed a four-year deal with the Thunder worth $140m while his teammate, Enes Kanter, signed a deal close to $100m back in 2015.

Adams averaged 11.3 points and 7.7 rebounds per game last season for the Thunder, up from 8.0 points and 6.7 rebounds the year before.
