The Warriors announced that Jacob Evans, the No. 28 pick in last month’s draft, has inked a contract. The deal comes just in time for the club’s California Classic Summer League opener tonight in Sacramento.

The problem? Evans is hurt. The wing is dealing with a minor toe injury and is doubtful for the meeting with the Miami Heat.

“I think he just bruised it and stubbed it on somebody’s foot but it’s pretty sore,” summer league coach Willie Green told reporters.

Evans was limited at shoot around Monday morning, leaving him little time to be ready for the 6pm tip-off at the Golden 1 Center. Evans is a question mark for game two of the summer circuit, an 8pm matchup with the Kings on Tuesday.

“I think he will but don’t hold me to that,” Green said. “I’m sure not yet. We’ll see how he feels.”

With the signing of Evans, the Warriors now have nine players under contract. Once Kevin Durant's contact becomes official at the end of the week, it will be 10:

  • Jordan Bell
  • Quinn Cook
  • Stephen Curry
  • Evans
  • Draymond Green
  • Andre Iguodala
  • Damian Jones
  • Shaun Livingston
  • Klay Thompson
