Huge game not a sign of change for Reggie Evans
by Chris Towers | Fantasy Writer

Kings forward Reggie Evans put up a huge 17-point, 20-rebound effort Sunday against the Grizzlies, which might put him on Fantasy owners' radars as they scour the waiver wires.

It's no secret that Evans can put up big numbers when he gets the chance. He is averaging 7.2 rebounds per game for his career, in just 19.4 minutes. He can be a double-double machine, but he also just doesn't have a clear role on this team. Unless Cousins or Jason Thompson gets hurt, there is no reason to pick up Evans in any format.
