Former Texas Tech point guard Keenan Evans didn’t hear his name called during the 2018 NBA Draft on Thursday, but he’ll get his NBA opportunity nevertheless.
According to multiple reports, Evans has agreed to terms with the back-to-back NBA champion Golden State Warriors.
Some names we know will be on the Warriors' Summer League team: Jordan Bell, Damian Jones, Jacob Evans (Cincinnati), Marcus Derrickson (Georgetown), Kendrick Nunn (Oakland), Abudushalamu Abudurexiti (China), Keenan Evans (Texas Tech) and Jordan Howard (Central Arkansas)

Evans will suit up for Golden State during summer league action, which gets underway on July 1 against the Miami Heat.
An All-Big 12 first-team selection last season, Evans averaged 17.6 points, 3.2 assists and 3 rebounds per game as the headliner of Texas Tech’s first Elite Eight squad.
In four seasons with the Red Raiders, Evans appeared in 131 games, making 99 starts. Throughout that period, he totaled 1,571 points, 354 rebounds, 346 assists and 128 steals.
With that portion of his career behind him, Evans will now pursue a training camp invitation and a roster spot with the Warriors. There is a potential opportunity with Golden State. Shaun Livingston will be 33 years old at the start of the 2018-19 season, Patrick McCaw is set to become a restricted free agent this summer and Quinn Cook will be in the same situation in 2019.
