Evans, a small forward from Evander Childs High School in The Bronx, went to Manhattan College, where he was named Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) rookie of the year in 1995. He followed that up with a first team All-MAAC performance as a sophomore in 1996.
Following his sophomore year, Evans transferred to the University of Kentucky. After sitting out the 1996–97 season as a transfer, he was a key player off the bench for the Wildcats' 1998 NCAA championship team. He averaged 8.8 points and 5.4 rebounds per game. His senior year, he moved into the starting lineup, averaging 11.8 points and 5.4 rebounds per game.
Evans was not selected in the 1999 NBA draft. He signed with ÉS Chalon-sur-Saône in France, kicking off a successful international career. After a stop in Japan, Evans made his way to Portugal in 2001, where he would later become a naturalized citizen. In 2009, Evans joined Benfica, where he led the team to the LPB championship in 2010.
