Thunder's Adams To Participate In NBA Rising Star Challenge

Posted: Updated:

Oklahoma City Thunder center Steven Adams was selected for the second consecutive season to participate in the BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge to be held on Friday, Feb. 13 at Barclays Center during NBA All-Star 2015.

Adams, currently in his second season with the Thunder, is averaging 7.4 points, 7.2 rebounds, 1.20 blocks and 24.4 minutes in 44 games (all starts). In his first BBVA Rising Stars challenge at NBA All-Star 2014, Adams finished with six points, four blocks, two rebounds and two steals in 18 minutes.

The BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge at NBA All-Star 2015 in New York City will feature a new format that pits first- and second-year NBA players from the United States against first- and second-year NBA players from around the world. Both BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge rosters, chosen by the NBA's assistant coaches, had to include four guards, four frontcourt players and two players at any position. The coaches also picked a minimum of three first-year players and three second-year players for each team.
