Kyle Adnam is a crafty, feisty, and quick scoring combo guard. He is an exceptional pick and roll player who is capable of getting to any spots on the floor to create shots for himself or his teammates. In addition, Kyle can score off the dribble, coming off screens, and by spotting up for 3-point shots. He uses his body incredibly well to draw fouls, plays off two feet in the lane, and uses various fakes in his offensive repertoire. His pick and roll skills, passing, mid-range pull up shots and step-backs, transition plays, and shooting from behind the 3-point line are his go-to offensive moves. Defensively, He uses his body incredibly well to avoid getting screened by bigger players and moves his feet well to keep quick guards in the front of him and out of the paint. Because of his balance, toughness, high IQ, anticipation, and discipline, he is a solid defender. In Australia and New Zealand, Kyle played both guard positions equally well.
