OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Jacob Evans drew the attention of the Golden State Warriors as much for his defense as his versatility.
"He's a serious player," Warriors GM Bob Myers said Thursday night after making the 6-foot-6 Cincinnati wing player their first-round pick with the 28th overall selection. "He's defensive-minded. He has a knack for it and a nose for rebounds."
Evans worked out twice for the Warriors, once on the day of the championship parade and again on Wednesday. He was one of many wing players taken in the first round.
