Under the influence of his father, Adam became a ball boy for the Spokane Gonzaga University men’s basketball team, during which time he developed into an athlete and started attending basketball camps at the university to develop his skills. However, while he attended one of the camps, when he was 13 years old, Adam’s health become worse, and he was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.

Adam then chose to try his luck in European basketball, and signed a contract with KK Crvena Zvezda in Serbia, but played only eight games for the team, averaging 15.5 points, and was named as the best scorer of the team.
