Adnam Chasing Dreams at Dallas Mini Camp
New Sydney Kings guard Kyle Adnam is the latest NBL player to be invited to the Dallas Mavericks upcoming free agent mini camp.
The Herald Sun broke the news of the cult hero joining Mitch Creek, Shea Ili and Isaac Humphries chasing the NBA dream.
Adnam caught the eye of Dallas Director of Player Personnel, Tony Ronzone, when he visited Australia earlier this year.
"I just like his confidence, the fact he looks like a surfer boy on the beach, a skinny guy, but he plays with no fear, he competes," Ronzone told the Herald Sun.
“He's the perfect Australian basketball player, I just like his will and desire to become good.”
In his first year as a contracted player with Melbourne, Adnam claimed his first NBL championship, dropping a career high 23 points against Adelaide in United's second game of the season.
Adnam is currently suiting up for the Nelson Giants in the NZNBL averaging 19.2 points and 7.1 assists per game.
The young guard will make his way to Dallas next week in what will be a dream come true.
“I’ve just got to go there and put my best foot forward and really take in the learning environment,” Adnam said.
“It’s a great opportunity for me to be surrounded by some amazing coaches and players and just improve. Any time you get put in situations with players of that calibre and coaches of that calibre is just amazing.”
