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.
Evans was assigned to the G League on Wednesday. It appears Evans won't be a regular part of the new-look Timberwolves rotation. He's appeared in four G League games this season, averaging 9.0 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.8 steals in 24.1 minutes.
Evans played the final minute and six seconds of Saturday's 142-115 win over the Clippers, accruing no statistics during his time on the floor. Evans may get the chance to push for a bigger role once he gets more practice time with the Timberwolves under his belt, but he found himself outside of coach Ryan Saunders' rotation in his Minnesota debut. The 2018 first-round pick looks like he'll be behind all of Malik Beasley, Josh Okogie, Jarrett Culver, Allen Crabbe and Jaylen Nowell on the Timberwolves' wing depth chart.
