It is the end of the season which marks the point where the Bullets Forever community get to weigh in on how well they think each Wizards player did over the course of the the abbreviated 2011-12 season. Each player is rated on the 1-10 scale. Next up: Mo Evans
Veteran leadership and consistency. That was what was promised when the team resigned Mo Evans and for a large part of the year one was left wondering whether Evans was brought back simply because he happened to be here last year. One of the most frustrating aspects of Flip Saunders reign at the beginning of year was to leave veterans like Evans and Roger Mason firmly planted on the bench. (Though Evans certainly did himself no favors by calling for ISOs or committing the classic Thornton "foul the opposing player behind the arc.") While the ceiling of each player was known and limited, it leads one to question whether the Wizards could have pulled a few more games out in the early part of the year if the "vets" were given a bit more burn.
This is likely the end of the line for Evans both on the Wizards and his NBA career. The Wizards have proven that they can dig up better players for lesser contracts (Cartier Martin, James Singleton) from far flung place rather than continue to pay for a revolving door of established NBA journeymen.
BOLD PREDICTION: Maurice Evans will never appear on an episode of Basketball Wives.
