Zalgiris Kaunas has secured the arrival of Keenan Evans on a two-year deal, the club announced on Tuesday. Evans (1.90 meters, 25 years old) averaged 8.2 points, 2.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.2 steals in 33 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague games last season, his first year in the competition.
Zalgiris lands playmaker Evans
Evans played college basketball at Texas Tech University and began his professional career with Grand Rapids and Delaware of the G-League. He opted to come to Europe in 2019 and joined Igokea Laktasi of Bosnia and Herzegovina, with whom he won the league title in 2020. Evans was then picked up by Hapoel Haifa and led Israel's domestic league in PIR with 25.8 per game during the 2020-21 season. His performances with Hapoel caught the eye of Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv, which signed him last summer. Now, one year later, he is taking his talents to Lithuania to join Zalgiris.
