While first-round pick Bam Adebayo was held out of the final three games of summer league, as often is the case with lottery picks, the work behind the scenes left Quinn encouraged about the next steps the big man out of Kentucky soon will be taking with assistant coach Juwan Howard.
"I think the seven games he played was a great first step as an NBA player," Quinn said. "He did everything we asked. He showed us a skill set that is very versatile. He was able to do things that maybe he hadn't done as much.
"But more importantly, he completely bought in to our player-development program. He's listening to Coach Juwan every single day and he's really been great to work with. His attitude and his work ethic have been amazing, which, for a guy with his talent, is most important."
THIS. IS. GOOD.
