Williams told reporters at the team's media day that Evans, who was signed with the Pelicans this summer after playing his first four seasons with the Sacramento Kings, will come off the bench for starting guards Jrue Holliday and Eric Gordon.

According to Kurt Hellin of Pro Basketball Talk, Evans has previously told reporters that he would have no trouble accepting the sixth man role.
