On June 28, 2006, the Pistons traded Evans to the Los Angeles Lakers for the draft rights to Cheikh Samb, following Evans' request to be moved to a team where he would be given more playing time. He served as a bench player for the Lakers, largely as the back up to Kobe Bryant.

On November 20, 2007, he along with teammate Brian Cook were traded to the Orlando Magic in exchange for Trevor Ariza. He became the Magic's starting shooting guard, contributing to the team's 52-30 record and landing the 3rd seed in the Eastern Conference for the 2008 Playoffs.

Evans agreed to terms on a 3-year contract from the Atlanta Hawks worth about $7.5 million on July 25, 2008. At the time, he was on the verge of signing a three-year deal with the Golden State Warriors. On February 23, 2011, he was traded to the Washington Wizards.

Evans has since retired.
