NBA’s Jacob Evans Honors Slain LSU Player Wayde Sims with Custom Pendant
Minnesota Timberwolves Guard Jacob Evans pays tribute to the memory of the LSU basketball player killed Wayde Sims … in the form of a personalized pendant.
Evans and Sims grew up in Baton Rouge – and Evans was devastated when he learned that Sims had been shot and killed at a party near the Southern University campus on September 28.
Officials say Sims was trying to defend a friend in a fight when another 20-year-old drew a gun and opened fire on the LSU hoop player.
The alleged shooter is currently on trial for second degree murder.
Evans, 23, wanted to pay tribute to his friend – so he hit Courtney roy of Clarity Custom Jewelry to order a custom piece featuring Sims and Ja’Cardo Hawkins, another friend who died in 2019.

Hawkins was also a college basketball player who received an All-ACSC Honorable Mention in 2018.
It is a beautiful tribute to two young men who died too young.
