Evans has struggled to stay on the court the past few years because of chronic knee injuries. He will look to rejuvenate his career with a Memphis squad that is in need of a guard with offensive firepower. Memphis lost Vince Carter, and Zach Randolph to the Sacramento Kings this past week, and were in desperate need of another rotation piece off the bench.
Evans is definitely a low risk, high reward pick-up Memphis, considering how little they had to give up for him. Barring injury, he will almost certainly be a great help to Mike Conley and Marc Gasol offensively. Evans will not solve all of the problems Memphis have currently, but his signing is definitely a step in the right direction.
