When you start with a D ranking of 29 at PF and you are the only guy on a team that has a sub-50 D it doesn’t really hurt your squad if you use that guy and his 24 D at SF, or even 19 D at SG, (PG does not matter because you need assists there but in case you are wondering he is a 12 there.)
So, when you draft Evans you have to ask yourself where is the least painful place to take the hit your team takes from him on D for 24mpg and balance it with what kind of rebounding advantage does he bring to that position?
For his natural PF position his numbers are (orb-dreb-combined): 14.6-35.7-50.3
At 90% SF he brings: 13.14-32.13-45.27, IMO 45.3 SF is a far more dominant advantage than 50.3 from PF.
And believe it or not, his 82% effectiveness at SG may offer more of an advantage than anything else: 11.97-29.27-41.25.
There is a good chance that Evans will see most of his minutes at SG/SF for my team since the weak D can only get so weak, he never shoots the ball anyway, and it appears that he becomes even more dominant on the boards as he moves to the smaller positions, even though his effectiveness drops.
I may even have a Bol/Evans combo for 48mpg at SF, just wish I could take their stats, combine them, divide by two, and play their average for 48mpg. I may also try to keep them both on the court together most of the time at different positions, but that is more difficult when only three players on your squad are responsible for over 80% of your usage and they are not in that group of three.
Could blow up in my face altogether, but I expect to see some crazy numbers from these guys, at least once in a while.
