Scouting Report

Evans may have been Cincinnati's leading scorer in each of the last two seasons, but his ability to also be a major contributor on the defensive end could make him a late first-round selection. Evans left the Bearcats after a junior season in which he averaged 13.0 points with career highs of 4.7 rebounds and 3.1 assists. That came after he put up 13.5 points, 4.2 boards and 2.7 assists per game in 2016-17. While his scoring basically stayed the same during those two seasons, Evans' shooting numbers fell off in 2017-18. His overall field-goal percentage went from 47.3 to 42.7 and his 3-point percentage dropped from 41.8 to 37.0. Evans has some work to do in order to become a consistent offensive threat, but he adds to his overall value by being an above-average defensive player. Evans averaged 1.3 steals in each of the last two seasons - ranking in the top 10 in the American Athletic Conference each time - and blocked 1.0 shots per game as a junior to rank second in the AAC in that category among players 6-foot-6 or shorter. Evans appeared in all 105 of Cincinnati's games since 2015-16, starting each of the past 77 contests. The program compiled an 83-22 record over that stretch but went just 2-3 in the NCAA Tournament. Evans, though, shined in those five games with averages of 15.4 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2.0 assists, showing he has what it takes to develop into a solid two-way player that NBA teams covet.
