“I didn't get to see them at all. I didn't get to watch either one of them,” Durant said. “But I've heard a few things about them, plus YouTube is a source to let me know about those guys. I got to watch that a little bit. But I'm sure they're going to come in and work hard and be ready to play.”
Georgetown coach John Thompson III, who coached against Adams' Pittsburgh team in Big East play this year, said Adams' size is what stands out most.
“He's a presence,” Thompson told The Oklahoman on Friday. “He's big in terms of height as well as in terms of stature. He's still developing, and that always happens with big guys. Sometimes big guys take a little longer. But I think he's going to be very, very good. He's going to be a presence right away.”
As for the disappointment, Durant encourages fans to realize what's done is done.
“We got the best players we could at those picks,” Durant said. “All they should do is support us.”
