   .....Third Prize Is You're Fired

Evans, Jeffers and Gaines were covered in the Jazz summer league round-up from back in July. Jeffers averaged 7.6 points and 3.6 rebounds per game in the tournament, while getting to the foul line a ton; however, Gaines struggled, averaging 8.6 points on 37% shooting and turning it over 2.6 times a game compared to only 3.0apg. Evans, though, impressed in his limited minutes. Playing behind James Augustine for no real reason, Evans averaged 5.0 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 0.8 blocks in only 16 minutes per game, impressing the Jazz staff with his defense whilst doing enough offensively. Some more rebounds would have been nice, yet Evans won enough hearts to all but secure his place on the team, in ways not really reflected in the stat sheet. Utah's decision to pick him in the second round was highly surprisingly and easily questionable, yet now looks thoroughly validated.

   15 More Ten Day Contract Candidates (Because Apparently 101 Wasn't Enough After All)

In some additional related bookkeeping, the reason for many of the players listed in the previous list was due to the NBA's contract guarantee date. All players on NBA rosters on or after January 10th have their contracts guaranteed for the remainder of the season (future seasons are unaffected); this also includes waivers. In-season waivers are 48 hours long and do not include weekends; therefore, with the 10th of January being a Monday, players had to be waived by close of business on Wednesday 5th in order to have cleared waivers before the deadline date.

Eleven players with not fully guaranteed contracts were waived in the hours before that deadline: Steve Novak, Damien Wilkins, Jarron Collins, John Lucas III, Ime Udoka, Lester Hudson, Ronald Dupree, Brian Skinner, Pops Mensah-Bonsu, Sundiata Gaines and Rodney Carney. Twenty seven unguaranteed players survived; Delonte West, Von Wafer, Brian Scalabrine, Samardo Samuels, Manny Harris, Alonzo Gee, Brian Cardinal, Melvin Ely, Gary Forbes, Jeremy Lin, Ish Smith, A.J. Price, Ike Diogu, Luc Richard Mbah A Moute, Ben Uzoh, Didier Ilunga-Mbenga, Shawne Williams, Malik Allen, Garret Siler, Patty Mills, Sean Marks, Darnell Jackson, Chris Quinn, Sonny Weems, Jeremy Evans, Cartier Martin and Hamady Ndiaye. Players with contracts who had already become guaranteed due to specific guarantee stipulations in their contracts were Sherron Collins, Derrick Brown, Josh McRoberts, Willie Warren, Derrick Caracter, Luther Head and Joey Dorsey.

   2010 Summer League Rosters: Utah Jazz

Jeremy Evans

Evans's entirely unexpected draft selection is dependent solely on his "potential". As far as what he has achieved so far, there's not a lot to report. In his senior season at Western Kentucky, Evans averaged 10.0ppg, 6.9rpg and 1.8bpg, shooting 65% from the field (on dunks) and 68% from the foul line. He wasn't even the best player on a team that didn't even make it to the Sun Belt Tournament final; that honour goes to guard A.J. Slaughter. So what do the Jazz see in Evans?

Athleticism. The rest is just a question mark.

   Sham's 2010 NBA Draft Night Recap, Part 2

Jay Bilas talks so much about Willie Warren that the Jazz's drafting of Jeremy Evans of Western Kentucky with the 55th pick is completely missed. It's not even mentioned. Evans averaged only 27 minutes per game as a senior in the not-very-good Sun Belt Conference, and averaged only 10 points, 7 rebounds and 2 blocks. Because of this, a player of Evans's calibre should not be on the radar, yet apparently Utah saw enough athleticism in him to overlook the fact that he can't dribble, shoot, or weigh over 200lbs. Maybe they too wanted Latavious Williams and decided to draft a replica.

   2013 Summer League rosters, Orlando Summer Pro League - Utah

Jeremy Evans

Evans, the model by which all springy thin 6'9 power forwards are compared and ought aspire to, needs minutes. The man with a career PER of 19.3 played only 38 games last year in Utah's stacked frontcourt. And while it's true that he's still very limited in terms of his skill set, thus perhaps destined only ever to be a limited minutes player unless he has an Amir Johnson-like development in his future, Evans is so effective at what he does that he simply has to be played anyway.
