Needing additional players to fill out a roster around Joe Johnson and (hopefully, for their sake) Deron Williams, the Brooklyn Nets have acquired reserve forward Reggie Evans from the Los Angeles Clippers for a future second-round pick, according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski. Evans will sign a three-year, $5 million deal, and the Nets will acquire him using a portion of the $3 million trade exception the tema received in last season's deal for Gerald Wallace.
Evans has made a career out of being a nuisance, since he lacks very many skills on either side of the ball besides rebounding. However, he also helped the Clippers get past the Memphis Grizzlies in the first round of the playoffs last year, annoying Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol inside. Nevertheless, the Clippers have little use for him after acquiring Lamar Odom in a three-way trade with the Mavericks and Jazz.
