Evans and the Pacers agreed to terms Tuesday on a one-year, $12 million contract, Shams Charania of Yahoo reports. Evans' career was trending in the wrong direction after a forgettable season with the Pelicans and Kings in 2016-17, but he bounced back in a big way after joining the Grizzlies on a one-year deal last summer. While Evans missed 30 games due to injuries and tanking, he averaged 19.4 points, 5.2 assists, 5.1 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game, all while shooting 45.21 percent form the field and nearly 40 percent from three. The second number, in particular, represented a substantial jump for the 28-year-old, who's a career 21.8 percent shooter from deep. Evans doesn't necessarily have a clear path to a starting role in Indiana, but his ability to play three positions should keep him on the floor in an inflated version of the super-sixth-man role vacated by the departure of Lance Stephenson.
Evans (personal) has been ruled out for Wednesday's season finale against the Thunder. Evans will finish the 2017-18 campaign missing the final 10 games of the season with a personal issue and it appears his time in Memphis is over. He'll be an unrestricted free agent heading into the offseason and is slated for a sizable raise in his salary after pulling in just $3.29 million in his lone season with the Grizzlies. Across 52 games, Evans put together impressive averages of 19.4 points, 5.1 rebounds, 5.2 assists and 1.1 steals across 30.8 minutes, all of which were upgrades from a season prior.
Evans (personal) will remain out for Monday's matchup with the Timberwolves. Evans will be missing his ninth straight game and seems likely to extend that streak Wednesday as well in the team's season finale. The Grizzlies have nothing left to play for at this point, so it seems likely Evans finishes his 2017-18 campaign with averages of 19.4 points, 5.1 rebounds, 5.2 assists and 1.1 steals across 52 games.
Evans (personal) is out for Sunday's game against the Pistons. Evans remains away from the team and without a timetable for a return. Following Sunday's game, he'll have just two more games to make an appearance for the team before the end of the season.
Evans (personal) has been ruled out for Friday's tilt with the Kings. Evans is still away from the team and at this point, it's safe to assume he won't be returning this season. With Andrew Harrison (wrist, shoulder) also out, look for Kobi Simmons and Marquis Teague to handle the point guard workload.
