  • Thunder's Jawun Evans: Latches on with Thunder

    Evans was claimed off waivers by Oklahoma City on Monday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Evans was waived by the Suns on Saturday, and although initial indications pointed to him signing with the Rockets, he's wound up with the Thunder on a two-way contract. He hasn't taken the court in an NBA game since Feb. 13 and is averaging under one point over seven contests this season.

  • Jawun Evans: To be waived by Suns

    Evans will be waived by the Suns and is expected to sign with the Rockets, Michael Scotto of The Athletic reports.

    Evans had appeared in just seven games for the Suns, averaging 0.9 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 9.1 minutes per contest. Following his departure from Phoenix, the second-year guard's expected to sign with the Rockets, where he could see minutes behind Chris Paul and Austin Rivers, albeit in a relatively limited role.

  • Jawun Evans: Returns to starting lineup

    Evans (hip) returned to the starting lineup Saturday, finishing the contest with 11 points (2-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 6-6 FT), nine assists, three rebounds and two steals.

    It's encouraging to see the two-way player return to the court with Northern Arizona, particularly with two guards ShawnDre Jones (hand) and Retin Obasohan (ankle) out Saturday. Still, five turnovers isn't a great figure for a point guard and highlighted a sloppy night for both teams considering Rio Grande and Northern Arizona combined for 40 giveaways.

  • Jawun Evans: Does not play due to hip injury

    Evans did not play in Northern Arizona's 116-93 loss to the Oklahoma City Blue on Sunday due to a left hip injury.

    Evans missed the second game in Northern Arizona's double-header against Oklahoma City after an uninspiring performance in the first matchup. The timing of the injury is unfortunate, considering Evans has seen playing time with the turbulent Phoenix Suns this year, but this injury might help the rookie by forcing him to stay in the G League and continue developing.

  • Suns' Jawun Evans: Logs 11 minutes in Wednesday's loss

    Evans totaled two points (1-3 FG), two rebounds, and one assist in 11 minutes during Wednesday's 116-88 loss to the Jazz.

    Evans made just his sixth appearance of the season, earning double-digit minutes for the first time since Dec. 15. Even in a blowout loss in which Devin Booker (hamstring), T.J. Warren (ankle), De'Anthony Melton (ankle), and Tyler Johnson (not injury related) were all out, Evans barely cracked the rotation and remains too far down the depth chart to trust for fantasy purposes.

  • Suns' Jawun Evans: Up with parent club

    Evans (coach's decision) failed to leave the bench Sunday in the Suns' 116-102 loss to the Lakers.

    Though the Lakers won comfortably, it apparently wasn't a big enough of a blowout for Phoenix coach Igor Kokoskov to empty his bench, as the Suns only used 10 players. Evans hasn't seen any action for the NBA team since Dec. 17, but he may stick with the parent club for the next couple of weeks as an insurance option in the backcourt while De'Anthony Melton (ankle) is sidelined.
