Maurice Evans was traded to The Lakers for the 51st pick in the NBA Draft, 7 foot 1 Center Cheick Samb from Senegal. Samb, who weighs less than 200 pounds is a project that will likely spend the next couple of seasons overseas.
Evans it seems asked to be dealt because of his lack of minutes on the team, and his shared roll with Delfino. This leaves room for Delfino to play a bigger role on the team next year. The Pistons are also going to try to use their mid-level exception on free agent Bonzi Wells.
