It's just the summer league, but Bam Adebayo has put on an impressive display through four games. Adebayo, drafted 14th overall by the Miami Heat, is averaging a double-double in the Orlando Summer League. He's scoring 19 points a game and collecting 10 rebounds.

Adebayo's best performance was July 3 against the Pacers. The former UK big man scored 29 points and grabbed 11 rebounds.

The Heat are 0-4 in the league, but Adebayo's play has been encouraging for Heat fans. He's third in the league in points per game and first in rebounds. UK head coach John Calipari has noticed Adebayo's performance to this point and joked that he held him back during his lone season in Lexington.
