Evans recorded 14 points (6-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 10 rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal across 23 minutes during Wednesday's win over Agua Caliente. The former slam-dunk champion continued his trends of double-doubles and needed just 23 minutes to accompany the feat Wednesday. He is currently averaging an impressive 15.0 points and 9.8 rebounds per game and should continue to be a consistent contributor to the BayHawks' success this season.
Evans was waived by the Hawks over the weekend, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Evans joined the Hawks for training camp, but failed to see any action in the preseason, which didn't give him many opportunities to impress the coaching staff. After spending last season in the Russian VTB United League, Evans will likely head back overseas after being waived, though there's also a chance he opts to go to the G-League instead.
Evans signed a training camp deal with the Hawks on Wednesday, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Evans has been out of the league since the 2015-16 season, after playing five years with the Jazz and one with the Mavericks. Most recently, he spent a brief period of time with BC Khimki of the Russion VTB United League, where he averaged 5.5 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.0 block across 12.4 minutes. He'll now return Stateside to join the Hawks, though his contract is not expected to be guaranteed and he'll have to have to have an impressive showing in the preseason to make the final roster.
Evans signed a contract Friday with BC Khimki of the Russian VTB United League, international basketball writer David Pick reports. After being let go by the Pacers in final roster cuts following the conclusion of the preseason, Evans will forgo joining the D-League and instead opt for greater financial security by heading overseas. If Evans enjoys a productive season abroad, he could be brought in for a look by an NBA team in training camp next fall.
Evans was waived by the Pacers on Sunday. Evans dealt with right-shoulder soreness due to an offseason surgery for much of the preseason. He wasn't expected to be a part of the Pacers' rotation during the regular season.
