Still Waiting on Reggie Evans

(FortCollins-CO) The Denver Nuggets are still yet to decide what they are going to do with, or without, Reggie Evans. Evans was acquired at nearly the last second of the trade deadline last season from the Seattle Supersonics in a trade that saw Byron Russell and Earl Watson depart from Denver. Will Evans stay in Denver be a short one or will he be brought back for another season with the Nuggets?

As of right now, Reggie Evans has traveled to Cleveland and talked about potentially signing with the Cavs, but also says he would like to return to the Nuggets. When asked about his meetings with the Cavaliers in a Rocky Mountain News interview he said, “Everything is cool. I’ve said that a million times.” Cool like your interviewing for another job cool, or cool like your going to be a Nugget next season? I sure would like to know…

The question is this… The Denver Nuggets in all likeliness will still have Kenyon Martin next season. At this point they have way too much to lose by just surrendering him for a fading role player, and would be better off keeping him and trying to straighten things out. This means that Reggie Evans will not be in such high demand next season, and if it happens, wouldn’t be that much of a loss if he is lured away from Denver.

In 26 regular season games with the Nuggets, Reggie Evans had averages of 5.2 points per game and 8.7 boards. He faded dramatically in the playoffs only averaging 3.8 points and 4.6 rebounds in the first round series with the Clippers. He will also forever be remembered for the, “Handy-work”, he maneuvered on Kris Kaman.

I don't really care anymore if we re-sign Reggie. If we do, cool, he can only and to our team, if we don't, like you said he is not much of a loss.
