IND Forward: 6’9, 200 lbs; 7th year, Western Kentucky | Career: 3.5 points/game, 2.6 rebounds/game, 57% FG

Jeremy Evans aka The ‘Human Pogo Stick’: a bouncy, small-power forward whose best skill is dunking a basketball hard through a basketball hoop; 2012 Slam Dunk champ hasn’t earned real minutes over the course of seven years, and is a shame – Evans always seems to impress during spot minutes; just a matter of time? Indy is making a shift to prioritize athletes & Evans has a place in the league’s top percentile; decent weak side defender who has gotten better at switching out on the perimeter and helping the helper; working hard to improve range on his J, the main thing standing in his way; Nate McMillan might sic him on opposing forwards as a defensive stopper to start out – will Evans seize the moment?
