NBA Rumors: Sacramento Kings Willing to Trade Tyreke Evans?

Back in the 2009 NBA Draft, the Sacramento Kings selected Tyreke Evans out of Memphis with the fourth overall pick and were thought to have brought in a missing piece to the puzzle. Selecting the now 22-year-old was considered to be the right move by the Kings with Evans having great potential to become a star in the NBA.

Evans burst onto the scene in his first season with the Kings, winning the Rookie of the Year award, and he showed ability to play multiple positions on the floor with a versatility that quickly made him one of the most promising young players in the league.

Unfortunately, Evans hasn’t been able to duplicate his performance in his rookie season after two mediocre years as the Kings’ premiere player. With two years of disappointment from Evans, Sacramento is seriously considering trading the guard before next season or leading up to the NBA trade deadline.

One team that appears to be expressing interest in acquiring Evans is the Toronto Raptors according to Bill Ingram of Hoopsworld.com:

“The Toronto Raptors are also aggressively shopping for a star-caliber small forward, and have been tied to talks surrounding Tyreke Evans and Andre Iguodala. They have now also reportedly added Gay to their wishlist.”

With Evans potentially having many good years ahead of him at 22-years-old, the Kings will almost certainly have plenty of interest around the league for the up-and-comer. There’s no telling at this point in time if Evans will be able to breakout of his funk with another team, but there will be plenty of suitors willing to take a chance on the versatile guard as he may prove to be a difference maker for a team looking for answer in the backcourt or at small forward.
