    Looks like they're trying to heal him. DNP last night

        These are the NBA preseason lines for Jacob. Honestly it's not at all encouraging. Not sure if he's still semi-hurt or struggling with the new shot mechanics or what. Maybe it's the confidence thing he's always had a little bit of an issue with. In any case this is rough.

          If I was a Golden State fan I would be pretty disappointed by these numbers from our first round draft pick. However... the guy drafted right after him (Dzanan Musa) posted worse stats. http://www.espn.com/nba/player/_/id/4348696

            Jacob scored a DNP in his debut with the Warriors.

              The few times I caught summer or preseason games, he looked like a deer in the head lights and was playing with zero confidence. If he wasn't a first round guaranteed investment he would be headed to the development league. I hope he grows a pair and earns his roster spot. In hind sight, Jacob and Gary should be in reverse positions. Lets hope Jake settles in and proves he belongs.

                His progress so far has to be disappointing to Warriors fans. Looking back at last year, it seems he didn't make an outside shot the whole second half of the season. He scored points in the Nevada game first half by driving to the basket, when Nevada took that away in the second half he really couldn't score. He always was a player that had trouble with confidence, if he missed early, many times he shut down for the game. I'm sure the Warriors knew that, so my guess is they think they can coach him up to get past that.

                  Good points - I hope you are right.

                    Totally agree with this. He needs to sit down with a sports pyschologist. For all the talent that he has, he lacks a killer instinct in his game. I think it's particularly true that if you lack confidence in the NBA, you're going to sit. Steve Kerr is a smart guy, he'll help him figure it out.

                      Jacob Evans sighting last night in GS's 123-103 W over Phoenix. 7 minutes, 2 points, 1 rebound, 1 assist. I have no idea what the "+/-" stat line means - but he was -7, which I assume may not be good.

                      First game action of the year

                        It's what the score differential did while he was on the floor. So, while he was playing, the Warriors were 7 fewer points ahead of Phoenix. A stupid stat.

                            Slater is reporting that Jacob has been assigned to Santa Cruz of the G-League to get him some playing time. He’s out of the rotation for Golden State.

                              This can be a positive and most non-lottery guys do go to the G League. Good luck to Jake, hope to see him back with the Warriors soon.

                                I still can't believe he went in the first round.
