Jaylen Adams: Headed for Greece
Adams agreed to a contract Monday with Greek club Promitheas Patras on a one-year contract, Christos Harpidis of TotalBasket.gr reports.
After being released from his two-way deal with the Bucks earlier this month, Adams has elected to find work overseas rather than waiting for another opportunity to emerge as the NBA level. With a strong showing in Greece over the next couple months, Adams could generate renewed interest from NBA teams in the summer, when he'll be a free agent once again. Prior to getting cut by Milwaukee, Adams appeared in seven games, averaging 0.3 points and 0.4 rebounds in 2.6 minutes.... See More ... See Less

Bucks' Jaylen Adams: Cited on disorderly contact
Adams, who has been sidelined for the Bucks' past two games due to the league's COVID-19 health and safety protocols, was arrested Friday and released by Milwaukee police after being cited for disorderly conduct, WISN 12 News Milwaukee reports.
According to the report, Adams' citation stemmed from an incident that occurred Thursday, when the 24-year-old was involved in an altercation with an Uber driver. The Bucks released a statement Saturday indicating that they are aware of the incident, but at this time, Adams' status doesn't look as though it will be affected.

Bucks' Jaylen Adams: Plays during garbage time
Adams played the final 37 seconds of Friday's 129-115 loss to the Jazz, recording no statistics.
After appearing in only one of the Bucks' first 20 games of the season, Adams has now seen the court in five of the past six contests. He's only seen garbage-time minutes in each of those games, however, as Adams merely looks to be the team's third-string point guard behind Donte DiVincenzo and D.J. Augustin while Jrue Holiday (COVID-19) is out. Once Holiday is back to full strength, Adams -- a two-way player -- could be assigned to the G League bubble in Orlando.... See More ... See Less

There, he averaged an excellent 20.9 points, 5.2 assists, 4.9 rebounds and 1.7 steals, being voted onto the All-G League team. Adams will again spend much of the upcoming season in the G League, so he won't be a viable fantasy player.... See More ... See Less

Adams hasn't appeared in either of the Trail Blazers' first two seeding games in Orlando, but he likely wouldn't be included in coach Terry Stotts' rotation even if his lower-back injury wasn't a concern.

Adams posted double-digit assists just for the second time this season, but he has dished out five or more dimes in four of the last six contests.
