Evans came off the bench to score 21 points (7-15 FG, 7-10 FT) and add 10 rebounds, five assists, and a block in 33 minutes against the Grizzlies.

Evans' move to the bench was more about lineup optimization than it was a demotion for Evans. Evans played effectively the same amount of minutes that he was seeing as a starter, and he had his most productive game in weeks despite the move. One game is not enough to draw any firm conclusions from, but it appears as though Evans value will be mostly unchanged, despite coming off the bench.

Evans will come off the bench Friday, the Times-Picayune's Nakia Hogan reports.

In a surprise move, Dante Cunningham will get the start at the three, as coach Monty Williams is searching for ways to keep only one of Eric Gordon and Tyreke Evans on the court as much as possible. It is not clear yet how much impact this will have on Evans' value, but it probably won't improve his value in any way.
