Scouting Report on Tyreke Evans

by Jerry Meyer - 04/12/2006
A rangy combo guard with a very long reach, Evans is able to penetrate by his man at will with crafty hesitation moves and crossover dribbles. He also loves to pull up from three off his hesitation dribble. When he gets into the lane, he has superb body control and an eye for spotting the open man. Not the quickest player laterally, Evans has very good defensive instincts and knows how to use his range to come up with steals. He is also able to dominate the defensive boards from his guard position.
