Reginald Jamaal "Reggie" Evans (born May 18, 1980, in Pensacola, Florida) is an American professional basketball player. The power forward currently plays for the Toronto Raptors of the NBA. While limited in his offensive game, Evans is known for his rebounding, tenacity and hustle on the defensive end; skills that have made him a serviceable role player in the NBA.

He attended Coffeyville Community College in Coffeyville, Kansas from 1998–2000 and then transferred to the University of Iowa. In 2001, Evans led the nation in free throws attempted, free throws made, and double-doubles. He led the Big Ten Conference in rebounding in 2001 and 2002, and was named Big Ten Tournament MVP in 2001 and Second Team All-Big Ten in 2002. He was Honorable Mention All-American in 2001.

He signed with the Seattle SuperSonics as a free-agent, 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.
