Virtus adds more playmaking with guard Adams

Virtus Segafredo Bologna added firepower to its already-stacked backcourt by signing guard Josh Adams for the up-coming season, the club announced on Monday. Adams (1.88 meters, 25 years) arrives from a fellow 7DAYS EuroCup contender Unicaja Malaga, where last season he made his competition debut last season and averaged 11.5 points, 2.5 assists, 2.2 rebounds and 1.0 steals while starting in each of his 15 appearances. Adams also had 12.2 points, 2.2 assists and 2.1 rebounds in the Spanish League action last season. Began his professional career with Avtodor Saratov in Russia, before joining Anadolu Efes Istanbul where he played for the majority of the 2017-18 season and where he made 16 appearances in the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague, averaging 7.0 points. Adams also played professionally with Besiktas Istanbul in Turkey, and split the 2018-19 season between Toronto of the G-League and Shanxi Zhongyu in the Chinese League. He now joins a Virtus backcourt that also features a pair of stars in veteran playmakers Milos Teodosic and Stefan Markovic.
