The Brooklyn Nets and Los Angeles Clippers have agreed to a sign and trade deal for forward Reggie Evans, per Y! Sports. Evans deal is for a reported three years and $5 million. The Clippers will receive a future second round pick from the Nets to complete the deal.
Acquiring Evans coupled with the earlier signing of European power forward Mirza Teletovic from Bosnia all but signals the end of the Kris Humpries era with the Nets. Humpries is an unrestricted free agent after averaging a double double (13.8 ppg, 11 rpg) for the second consecutive season. Evans comes as a huge discount to the $8 mil Humphries was for last season.
Evans is known as one of the better pure rebounders and energy players in the NBA and was an unrestricted free agent this summer after averaging 1.9 ppg and 4.8 rpg in 13.8 minutes of action for the Clippers. Evans averaged 11.5 rpg for the Raptors in 2010-2011.
