Report: Reggie Evans headed to Brooklyn in sign-and-trade

Clippers fans are not going to like this.

Reggie Evans, and his physical play and flopping, became a Clippers fan favorite over the course of season. But multiple reports now have him gone from Los Angeles headed to Brooklyn. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports and the NBC Sports Network broke the report.

Brooklyn is finalizing a sign-and-trade deal with the Los Angeles Clippers for Reggie Evans, league sources tell Y! Sports.

The deal is for three years, $5 million total, a sum the Nets can absorb into a trade exception they have. The Clippers will get a future second round pick.

Evans is an old-school power forward who can do one thing exceptionally well — rebound. Last season he grabbed one in five rebounds when he was on the floor, and that was actually worse than the year before (he grabbed 25 percent of the available boards when he was on the floor with the Raptors). He is physical, draws and gives fouls, defends hard, turns the ball over too much but can score on putback and dunks.

Nets fans, you’re going to love him. Ask Clipper fan.

    As a clipper fan I say noooooo. Great hustle guy. Nets are getting a great big man. Hopefully odom can return to form.

      “Great”….the most over used term in sports. I must have a different definition of great than you…..and probably most sports fans out there. I think the better terms would be injury prone, back-up, and decidedly mediocre.

    I think the Nets will never, ever draft anyone ever again at this rate.

      Lol your right. Trading #6 this year for Wallace, trying to trade first round picks in 2013, 2015, 2017 for Howard, giving seconds away quick. Nets hate the draft.

    Flopper??? He would have fit in great with the Heat.

      Its pretty sad that you are now trolling articles with no mention of the Heat just to attack them. Is your entire existence based on hating the Heat? It must suck that they won the championship, or was that the refs?

        refs, douche

      After watching the Clippers v. Grizz playoff series, I’d have to say the Clippers flop more than any NBA Team.

    Wow, I love what the Nets are doing! If they do end up with Dwight Howard, no one will beat them come April-June

      LMFAO they are not winning anything with that joke.

    • passerby23 - Jul 3, 2012 at 5:24 PM

      While I agree the Nets are making some waves, they’re not a championship team yet. Assuming D-Will resigns and they can trade for Howard, will they have any bench??

      Williams, Johnson, Wallace, Evans, Howard.
      Bench: Turkoglu, Morrow?

      Could easily be the best rebounding team in the NBA if they can pull it off and instantly a playoff team.

      i hope you’re being sarcastic. Otherwise enjoy Joe Johnson.

    Can’t wait for the Magic to not trade D12 to the Nets so I can laugh at all these dumb trades that won’t allow them to sign D12 as a FA. Obviously Prokhorov is willing to pay the luxury tax… too bad you have to do that via trades bud. Welcome to American sports.

    I heard Evans and D12 have the same agent…

  7. SmackSaw - Jul 3, 2012 at 5:34 PM

    One of my favorite players. Nets fans will have fun watching him.

    the fact that the nets are getting another quality big man should make teams be a little hesitant to second guess their ability to make a splash in the eastern conference. There is no denying that Gerald Wallace is there, Joe Johnson is there, Brook Lopez is there, and now Reggie Evans will come off the bench for PF minutes. If Derron Williams sees progress this year he may sign on for a couple more years, maybe not max out but maybe 3 years for 60 million…and if you have DWill at PG Marshon Brooks at SG, Joe Johnson at SF, Gerald Wallace at PF and Brook Lopez at center…that’s a tough team no matter how you look at it.

    In all reality they could be knock some contenders off in the first or second round of the playoffs….

    Dwills back with the nets!!

    We know the Nets won’t be grabbing Kaman for their team with Evans on the roster.

    ” flop city” reggie evans is joke and so is david stern

    Reggie is tough , like Charles Oakley tough, he was the only man on the Raps roster. So he is a big step up for Nets, Yes he’s undersized but plays bigger. Just don’t ask him to think. He is a rebounding fool, like Rodman but without the Blond hair..
