Adam Woodbury (born January 13, 1994) is an American basketball player for the Grand Rapids Drive of the NBA G League.[1] He was a Division I (NCAA) basketball player for the University of Iowa men's basketball team.[2]

College career[edit]

Woodbury was a top-50 recruit coming out of high school. As a freshman at Iowa, he posted 4.9 points and 4.8 rebounds per game and had similar numbers as a sophomore as the Hawkeyes reached the NCAA Tournament. Woodbury averaged 6.6 points and 5.2 rebounds per game as a junior as a backup to Gabriel Olaseni. He scored a career-high 16 points in a win against Maryland on February 8, 2015.[3] As a senior, Woodbury averaged 7.6 points and 8.3 rebounds per game.[4] He was an All Big Ten Honorable Mention selection by the media.[5] Woodbury hit a buzzer-beating layup to defeat Temple 72-70 in the first round of the NCAA Tournament and finished with 10 points.[6] He finished his career with 851 points and 760 rebounds.[7]

Professional career[edit]

Woodbury played for the Sacramento Kings in the NBA Summer League. Woodbury was drafted in the first round of the 2016 NBA Development League Draft by the Maine Red Claws. Alongside Omari Johnson and a 2017 first round pick, he was traded to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants in exchange for Dallas Lauderdale and Terran Petteway.[7] Iowa teammate Jarrod Uthoff joined the Mad Ants in February 2017.[8] The following season, he joined the Westchester Knicks. He saw an increase in minutes in March due to Nigel Hayes being called up by the Toronto Raptors and had seven points and 11 rebounds in a loss to the Long Island Nets.[9] Woodbury averaged 5.5 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 1.0 assists per game.[10]

Woodbury was added to the Stockton Kings roster on November 24, 2018 as a replacement for two Kings players competing in FIBA World Cup qualifying games.[11] Once these players returned, Woodbury was waived by the Kings. He was then signed by the Grand Rapids Drive.[12]
