Report: Warriors sign forward Maurice Evans to three-year deal
Bay Area News Group
Article Launched: 07/23/2008 07:25:45 AM PDT

On the heels of adding point guard Marcus Williams, the Warriors are now reportedly adding free agent forward Maurice Evans, who played for both the Lakers and Magic last season.

The Warriors have signed Evans to a three-year, $6.4 million deal, according to the Riverside Press-Enterprise. By adding Evans, it means the Warriors would not match the three-year, $9 million contract restricted free agent Kelenna Azubuike signed with the Los Angeles Clippers last week. The Warriors had until Friday to match Azubuike's deal, but Evans represents a cheaper - and perhaps better - alternative.

In Evans, the Warriors are getting an athletic swingman who's known as a solid defender and good three-point shooter (39 percent last season). The 6-foot-5 Evans averaged 9.3 points in 68 games for Orlando last season. He came to Orlando with Brian Cook in a November trade with the Los Angeles Lakers that sent Trevor Ariza to Southern California.

Evans, 29, has played five seasons in the NBA, including stops in Detroit and Sacramento

Hawks fill Childress' void by signing Evans
Veteran swingman signs multi-year deal, could slide into sixth-man role

By SEKOU SMITH
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Published on: 07/25/08

The Hawks didn't waste any time filling the void left by Josh Childress, who signed a three-year deal with a Greek team Wednesday.

Journeyman Maurice Evans has agreed to terms with the Hawks on a three-year deal believed to be worth about $7.5 million, according to multiple sources familiar with the situation.

More Hawks coverage

Evans was reportedly close to signing a three-year deal with Golden State on Wednesday, one California newspaper reported.

But that was before Childress bolted for the Euro league and before the Warriors decided to match a three-year, $9 million offer sheet to their own restricted free agent swingman, Kelena Azubuike, from the Los Angeles Clippers Thursday.

Evans, a six-year veteran, started 47 games last season for Orlando, the Hawks' Southeast Division rival, including all 10 playoff games against Toronto and Detroit for the division champs.

He could slide into the sixth-man spot vacated when Childress opted for a deal with Greek power Olympiakos.

Evans, a 6-foot-5, 220-pound swingman, averaged 9.3 points and 3.1 rebounds in 68 games last season after being traded to Orlando from the Los Angeles Lakers.

Evans, 29, has a reputation as a tenacious perimeter defender and opportunistic offensive threat. He's a career 37 percent shooter from beyond the 3-point line, and averaged a career-high 9.3 points last season.

Evans played the best game of his NBA career against the Hawks in April. He scored a career-high 27 points in a 121-105 win over the Hawks on April 15 at Philips Arena.

Since the start of the 2001-02 season, Evans has logged time with Minnesota, Sacramento, Detroit, the Los Angeles Lakers and the Magic, his longest stint with one team being the 2006-07 season with the Lakers and the seven games he played last season before being traded.

The Lakers traded Evans and Brian Cook to the Magic last November for Trevor Ariza.

I think he did go to the Hawks cuz the Warriors one says they wouldn't match the offer to Azubuike, which they did.

He never signed with the Warriors. He backed out because he wanted more money.

The Riverside Press Enterprise reported he signed for three years, $6.4 million. But he has not signed the deal, the source said. The numbers were settled on before Evans backed out. Why? You’re right. He wants more money.So, here’s the deal. If Evans wants too much, the Warriors will match Kelenna Azubuike, who plays the same position.

How many times do I need to say this again? Mo Evans didn't sign with the Warriors... he agreed to a deal with the Warriors. He decided to backed out and signed with the Hawks because he got more money and more playing time. Since Evans decided to backed out... the Warriors decided to matched Azubuike's deal with the Clippers.

Yeah, he backed off the Warriors deal at the last minute, probably because he recieved a counter offer that seemed better. This was probably the offer he got.

Mo Evans brings athleticism, hustle, the ability to create a shot inefficiently and decent man defense. He has terrible hoops IQ, shot selection, and thinks he's better than he is.

He'll fit right in on the Hawks as about half their roster fits the same description.
