Reggie Evans is the only BIG3 player in history to dominate the stats board with a first-place ranking in any category for all three years of the league’s existence. He averaged a 10.9 rebounds per game in 2019, matching his 2017 clip, and pulled down 10.3 boards per contest in 2018.
In addition to his obvious defensive dominance, co-captain Evans emerged as the 3 Headed Monsters’ second-highest scorer, averaging 11.4 points per game. He also was the team leader in steals (0.8 per game). In 2018, he took the league by storm leading all players not only in rebounds, but also in blocks. He also ranked in the top five in steals, points, field goals and field goal percentage. Perhaps most important, Evans stepped up when the Monsters’ leading scorer, Rashard Lewis, was sidelined due to injuries.
Evans played 13 seasons in the NBA with seven teams – the Seattle SuperSonics, Denver Nuggets, Philadelphia 76ers, Toronto Raptors, Los Angeles Clippers, Brooklyn Nets and Sacramento Kings. From the time he entered the league in 2002, he established himself as a tenacious rebounder. In 809 career NBA games, Evans averaged 4.1 points and 7.1 rebounds per game.
In 2001, playing collegiately for the University of Iowa, Evans led the nation in double-doubles. He twice led the Big Ten in rebounding and was Big Ten Tournament MVP in 2001.
