PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — Pitt head coach Jamie Dixon addressed a couple of issues before he left for the Final Four and college coaches meetings on Wednesday. He said it’s the correct decision for freshman center Steven Adams to declare for the NBA Draft.
“Given his family situation, we know it’s the best thing for his family to put his name in the draft,” Dixon said. “Knowing his situation, it’s what is best for him.”
Dixon admits the seven-foot center might not be ready for the NBA; however, “the draft is, especially with big guys, based on where they will be down the road.”
