Bam Adebayo Can Shoot Threes

John Calipari loves to tease his big men when they leave the paint.  “You were a shooter, not a maker,” was the line he used in his recent Cal Cast with Anthony Davis.  It turns out, Bam Adebayo is a shooter AND a maker from behind the three-point line.

After playing primarily in the post in college, Adebayo is using pre-draft workouts to prove to NBA scouts that he can stretch the floor.

“Most people think I can’t shoot, but I’m working on it and staying humble,” he told DraftExpress.  “I’m getting more comfortable with it.  I shot midrange in college.  I just got evaluate myself and shoot better from three.”

Calipari always told the media that Bam could knock ’em down from deep, but he never attempted a three-pointer in his one season at Kentucky.  He knocks down a few in the footage from his Chicago workout, displaying scary versatility that could move him up draft boards.
