After verbally agreeing to sign with Golden State earlier this week, Maurice Evans backed out and asked for more money. The Warriors said, "Thanks, but no thanks," and instead matched the offer sheet Kelenna Azubuike signed with the Clippers. Neener neener, Baron Stealers!
Evans has found a home in Atlanta, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (ht: Hoopinion). Evans was as good as gone the moment Keith Bogans told the team he would exercise his player option this season, so this signing means little to us. We'll get to see him roast us -- the Hawks always roast us, it seems -- four times a year. It also means he'll play 41 games a year in the building in which he set his NBA career-high last April. Good times.
