Evans was waived by the Knicks on Wednesday. The guard came to New York via trade around the draft, and the Knicks will now cut him loose just a few days into training camp. The former Cincinnati standout split last season between Golden State and Minnesota, appearing in 29 games and averaging 4.4 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 14.4 minutes.
Evans has been traded, along with Omari Spellman and a future second-round pick, to New York for Ed Davis, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Evans has seen limited time in the league over the past two seasons, appearing in just 29 contests in 2019-20 with the Warriors and Timberwolves. Evans likely will start the 2020-21 campaign with New York in the G League if the Knicks keep him.
Evans was transferred to the G League on Saturday, Dane Moore of ZoneCoverage.com reports. Evans will return to Iowa in order to get additional in-game reps. In six G League outings this year, the 22-year-old's averaging 6.8 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 21.9 minutes per game.
The Timberwolves recalled Evans from the G League's Iowa Wolves ahead of Monday's game against the Mavericks, Dane Moore of ZoneCoverage.com reports. Evans will join the team in Dallas to provide some extra depth on the wing while Allen Crabbe (personal) remains away from the team for a second straight game. Don't expect Evans to see any minutes Monday outside of garbage time, however.
Evans returned from the G League on Friday. Evans has played just a single minute in the Wolves' three games since he came over in a trade from the Warriors. There's little reason to believe he'll play a significant role Friday against the Celtics.
