Yes, the 6-foot-5 swingman out of Arizona is eligible to play as an Asian Quota Player.

This as Adams obtained his Philippine passport before the age of 16, according to a verifiede source.

This makes the 27-year-old Filipino-American eligible not just to play as an Asian import in Japan or Korea but also for Gilas Pilipinas.

In Japan, he will be treated like fellow dual passport holders like Juan Gomez de Liano (free agent), Bobby Ray Parks Jr. (Nagoya), Kobe Paras (Niigata), and Dwight Ramos (Toyama).
