Warriors take Jacob Evans with 28th pick of the first round

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) The Golden State Warriors, looking for depth, took Cincinnati’s Jacob Evans with the 28th overall selection in Thursday night’s NBA draft.

Evans, who turned 21 three days ago, was a finalist for the Julius Erving Small Forward of the Year award a year after being a finalist for the Jerry West Shooting Guard of the Year.

Evans averaged 11.7 points, 2.5 assists and 4.3 rebounds in 105 career games with Cincinnati.

His mother, Theresa Chatman-Evans, was a point guard at Grambling.

The Warriors traded their second-round pick to the Denver Nuggets five years ago for Andre Iguodala.
