By Mike Mazzeo

From a team press release:

The Brooklyn Nets have acquired forward Reggie Evans from the Los Angeles Clippers, Nets General Manager Billy King announced today. In exchange for Evans, Los Angeles will have the right to swap second round draft picks with Brooklyn in 2016.

“Reggie Evans is one of the most tenacious rebounders in the league,” said King. “He is a proven NBA veteran and will be an important addition to our front court rotation.”

Evans played in 56 games for the L.A. Clippers in 2011-12, averaging 1.9 points and 4.8 rebounds in 13.8 minutes per game.
