In 2017, Evans joined the BIG3 basketball league's Killer 3's team, playing alongside Charles Oakley (who also was the head coach), Chauncey Billups, and Stephen Jackson. In 2018, Evans joined the BIG3 basketball league's 3 Headed Monsters, playing alongside Rashard Lewis, Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf, and being coached by Gary Payton.
Having only played in nine of the Kings' first 16 games to start the 2014–15 season, and having not played in the previous seven games, Evans made up for the absence of starting center DeMarcus Cousins against the Memphis Grizzlies as he recorded 17 points on 7-of-10 shooting and 20 rebounds in 35 minutes off the bench. The seldom-used Evans sparked Sacramento back into the game during the third quarter, getting Marc Gasol in foul trouble and slicing Memphis' lead to 74-65 heading to the fourth. However, the Kings went on to lose the game, 97-85.
On July 11, 2012, Evans was traded to the Brooklyn Nets in a sign-and-trade deal. On November 21, 2012, he became the first NBA player to be fined for flopping after a 95-90 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers. One league executive had called Evans "the star" of flopping in a preseason demonstration video.
On December 22, 2011, Evans signed a one-year contract with the Los Angeles Clippers. He would finish the season with an average of 1.9 points and 4.8 rebounds in 13.8 minutes per game over 56 games.
On June 9, 2009, Evans was traded to the Toronto Raptors in exchange for Jason Kapono. Evans started the season with a foot injury and did not play a game for the Raptors until February 10, 2010. On November 24, 2010, Evans pulled down a then-career high 22 rebounds (along with 12 points) in the Raptors' 106-90 win over the Philadelphia 76ers.
On September 10, 2007, he was traded along with the draft rights to Ricky Sanchez to the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for Steven Hunter and Bobby Jones.
Evans was put in as the starting power forward for the Sixers 2007–08 NBA season. He took the Sixers from the worst rebounding team, to the top 15. He missed only one game the whole season, and started more games than in his two with Denver. During game three of the Sixers' first round playoff series against the Detroit Pistons, Evans scored 9 points and grabbed 5 rebounds en route to a Sixers' victory amidst chants of "Reg-gie! Reg-gie!" from the Philadelphia fans at the Wachovia Center.
Evans's best statistical season came to a halt on January 3, 2006, when the Sonics front office dismissed head coach Bob Weiss and promoted assistant Bob Hill to replace him. In Hill's new system, Evans lost his starting spot and his minutes were drastically reduced.
On February 23, 2006, the Sonics traded Evans to the Denver Nuggets. In his first five games with the division-leading Nuggets, Evans played more minutes than he did in his final twenty-one games with the Sonics.
On March 10, 2006, against the Toronto Raptors, Evans had zero points but 20 rebounds. Evans became the first player with 20 rebounds in a scoreless game since Dennis Rodman did it for Chicago on December 15, 1997, against Phoenix.
During a 2006 game, Reggie Evans grabbed Los Angeles Clippers center Chris Kaman in the testicles in an attempt to gain a position advantage. Kaman immediately pushed Evans to the floor and later said, "I felt I got a little violated by another man." However, Kaman ultimately decided not to press assault charges against Evans. Evans was fined $10,000 and a flagrant foul-two for his actions.
Evans made the news on December 6, 2005, when he was absent for the opening minutes of the second half in a loss to the New York Knicks. Circumstances did not allow Evans to take a steroid test prior to the game, so a league official required that it be done at halftime. Evans laughed off the suggestion he was under suspicion. "I've been clean since I've been in the league. I've been clean since I've been in college. I've been clean since I've been in high school, middle school, elementary school. I'm just cleaner than clean. I'm cleaner than Pine-Sol."
Evans signed with the Seattle SuperSonics as a free-agent in 2002, where he became known for his tenacious rebounding. In 2004–05, he led the league in rebounds-per-minute-played after finishing in the top 10 the two previous seasons. Despite playing under 24 minutes per game, he finished ninth in the NBA in total rebounds. A 2005 statistical analysis published on ESPN determined that on average, Evans will rebound one quarter of all shots missed while he is in a game. In the 2006 season this dipped to 21.5 percent, however, this was still good enough to edge out teammate Marcus Camby for the best rebound rate in all of basketball.
Evans attended Coffeyville Community College in Coffeyville, Kansas from 1998 to 2000 and then transferred to the University of Iowa. In 2001, he led the nation in free throws attempted, free throws made, and double-doubles. He also led the Big Ten Conference in rebounding in 2001 and 2002, was named Big Ten Tournament MVP in 2001, second-team All-Big Ten in 2002, and Honorable Mention All-American in 2001.
