I just got a frame with a BB86 bottom bracket shell. I have a BSA threaded bottom bracket I would like to use in the frame but cannot find an adapter to make this happen. Does anybody make one? Is it possible?

Pretty sure this is not possible. Unless it would be for a very wide fatbike crankset? The BB86 is the same width as a threaded BB+external cups. It's not like BB/PF30, which is narrower.

You need a BB86 bottom bracket. "There is no spoon"... or adapter in this case.

Perfect. Forget about your current bb and buy a shimano bb86 bottom bracket.
