Jeremy Evans, Australian Football star?

5 05 2010

I received word from former Western Kentucky forward Jeremy Evans’ agent Mike Naiditch this morning that the 6-9 forward/center will be working out for the Chicago Bulls today in Chicago.

Naiditch said this will be Evans’ second workout for an NBA team over the past few weeks and went on to say that things are progressing well for the former Hilltopper – as he’s even put on 10 pounds of muscle in the process.

One rather comical situation Naiditch informed me of was a phone call he received from an Australian Rules Football team that was interested in Evans for a position as a ‘Ruckman,’ which is generally a taller player who leaps over opponents to tap the ball to his teammates.

Needless to say, Naiditch said that Evans would be sticking to basketball.
