Jacob Evans is projected to go right around or a little bit after the Bucks pick at 17. That should ensure he’s available when they get on the clock.
Evans played three seasons at Cincinnati and steadily improved every year. He’s not a “wow” prospect, instead, he’s as steady as they come. He’ll do the little things right for your team and help you win ball games.
He’s also a high I.Q. player who plays within the system and understands his limitations and role. This will be extremely helpful for the Bucks, as they need to add a few role players to help get them to the next level.
Outside of the intangibles, Evans is a typical three-and-D prospect. He works hard on the defensive end of the floor and is tall and long enough to defend multiple positions. He’s also improved as a shooter and could become a nice spot-up option in the NBA which is exactly what the Bucks need.
