1. Jacob Evans III

Minnesota acquired Jacob Evans III, along with Spellman and Russell, in the Andrew Wiggins trade with Golden State before the trade deadline.

Evans hasn’t had much of a chance to prove himself since entering the league in 2018. After being a first-round pick, the former Cincinnati Bearcat has averaged only 10.5 minutes per game in 59 appearances at the NBA level.

This season with Golden State was the most Evans was able to play, mainly due to the construction of the team and their injuries. In 15.3 minutes per game, he averaged 4.7 points, 1.5 rebounds, 1.1 assists per contest and shot 33.8 percent from the field and 34.2 percent from 3-point range.

Since arriving in Minnesota, he hasn’t logged much time, playing in garbage time in just two games. The only recorded stat in his four minutes as a Wolf is one missed field goal.

With the Iowa Wolves, he’s played in eight games and logged 20.5 minutes per contests. In that span he’s averaging 5.4 points and 3.0 rebounds. per game He’s also not shooting the ball well, making only 25.5 percent of his attempts from the field and 18.5 percent from three.

Coming into the NBA out of Cincinnati, Evans was a 3-and-D player, but between the G League and the NBA, he has fallen short of showing that. Receiving him in the trade wasn’t a bad thing, he was a former first round pick and there was a chance he could perform a little better with more opportunity.

Evans is still on the books for another year before a team option heading into the 2021-22 season, but with the way he’s performed, Minnesota could look to move his deal in a trade this summer.

Entering the offseason, it’s still fairly unclear as to where the team will go since the NBA season is suspended and there are a lot of new faces on the team, but Culver, Martin and Evans look like the most likely candidates to have played their final game in a Timberwolves uniform.
