Jacob Evans is an athletic, skilled swingman that can help a team in many different facets of the game. He can shoot and score the basketball, and he also tends to make sound decisions when he is on the floor. He is also a solid defender that is a good shot blocker for a player his size.
While he may not be outstanding in any one area, Evans’ ability to contribute in a lot of ways could make him a good pick for an NBA team in the late first to the second range of the upcoming draft.
