Mavs to Sign Jeremy Evans to Two-Year Deal

by July 06, 2015

The Dallas Mavericks are adding free agent high-flier Jeremy Evans to their roster, having come to terms on a reported two-year deal for the veteran’s minimum.

Evans, 27, struggled in Utah last season, posting averages of just 2.4 points and 1.9 rebounds in 38 games.


The 6-foot-9 Evans, the 2012 NBA slam dunk champion, spent the first five seasons of his career with the Utah Jazz.


The most productive season of Evans’ career was in 2013-14, when he averaged 6.1 points and 4.7 rebounds in 18.3 minutes per game. He fell out of the Jazz’s rotation last season, appearing in only 38 games.


The Mavs view Evans as a developmental project with the potential to contribute immediately as a versatile, athletic frontcourt reserve.
