A cool story on Juwan Evans:
After being picked up by the Phoneix Suns (I told ya’ll it wouldn’t be long.) The Arizona Central wrote a great article about how Evans will fit into Phoenix’s team.
He isn’t expected to put up those type of numbers for Phoenix, but Evans has more NBA experience than rookies Elie Okobo and De’Anthony Melton playing the point.
Watching from afar, Evans believes he can help the Suns at that position.
“Just being that point guard,” said Evans, who started four games for the Clippers last season. “Getting my teammates involved. Getting them easier shots.”
Evans doesn’t see the transition from Northern Arizona to Phoenix being a problem because the teams run the same system.
“At the end of the day, it’s still basketball,” said Evans, who has improved as a player in the G League.
“Just needing to develop as a point guard, being more vocal and just getting my teammates in the offense. I think it’s helped me out tremendously.”
