Someone feel free to look up the restrictions on when this guy would be available again. He was just traded this offseason to Toronto. He was picked up for Jason Kapono (not much)...
This guy averaged almost 5 rebounds in only 14.5 minutes per game. He is a selfless player, tough, and plays solid defense.
His name is Reggie Evans. Why do we not even explore trying to get a guy like this?
He could have thrown a different element into our lineups and wouldn't require a major load of minutes that would have taken away from Randolph, Biedrens, or even Randolph.
Evans could have been had for Bellineli (no doubt about it) and with out log jam at guard this would have been a WONDERFUL addition to our team. He is an undersized (height wise) post player but is capable of playing minutes at the 4 or 5 (at times) and even improved his horrible free throw shooting up to almost 60% last season.
He is comparable chemistry wise to Ronnie Turiaf. Every team Evans has played on he is always seen on the bench cheering on his teammates, waiving towels, and seems to be well liked by his teammates.
Obviously Evans would not have been a "championship" missing piece. I'm not crazy. But the guy was to be had for the cheap and fills a lot of areas we lack in.
Simply stated we dropped the ball on this guy and Toronto slipped in and took away a wonderful option that we neglected.
