View Full Version : Kings will entertain trade offers for Evans

Kings executives will entertain trade offers for Tyreke Evans this summer, and they should.

Evans remains a major asset. His team remains in a major funk. When a franchise finishes near the conference cellar for six consecutive seasons, the general manager needs to make significant personnel changes, or the franchise needs to change its general manager.

But that's an organizational decision.

Evans, who has a year remaining on his contract, has his own decision to make. He has to figure out what he wants and how badly he wants it. He has to determine what kind of player he wants to be and proceed accordingly, essentially controlling what he can control.

Is he satisfied with his Rookie of the Year trophy? Is it enough to be pain-free for the first time in two years? Is he content being a starter? And, most importantly, will he ever emotionally embrace the shift from point guard to small forward a total mind, body and soul experience and become a more engaged, consistent performer?

There is no quick answer hiding behind the locker room doors. Evans is both perplexing and a piece of the Kings' puzzle. He has a unique combination of skills, an agreeable, accommodating personality and the 6-foot-6, 220-pound physique of a basketball god.

His perimeter shooting just kills it for me honestly. I really thought he would be much better than this after his rookie year. I would love to put him in a Wolves uniform, but not at the expense of Rubio, Love, or Pekovic. The Kings probably don't want anything else we have.

Can't blame you for that. He's had three years to show any signs of an improving jumper and if anything it's gotten worse. The guy gets to the rim as well as anyone, but like you said, that jumper is just atrocious. It's the main thing holding him back. It's either work ethic or confidence. Probably both.

Also...I have never seen someone give as little effort as Evans does when it comes to fighting through screens. It's a team-wide issue. It's like if someone screens them they just think, "Well, this means I'm done playing defense now." The only guy on the Kings who doesn't do that is Isaiah.

I didn't.

Even with his shooting struggles, he just is SUCH an iso player ala Jamal Crawford or Larry Hughes. I thought this since before he got drafted.

Don't get me wrong, the guy has the talent to be a top 25 player in this league, but I just don't think he understand how to play within a team concept. I think the guy is a phenomenal one on one player who can take anyone off the dribble, but he just doesn't seem to be able to play within a team.

I think he'd be a poor fit for the T-Wolves with already ball-dominant perimeter player who is a questionable shooter in Rubio. I think he'd make some sense for Ind or Portland if they can get the ballhog out of him.

I'd consider GSW as well. They have great shooting from that backcourt of Curry and Thompson but their lack of penetration concerns me.

I highly doubt Tyreke would be happy coming off the bench tho and I think the Warriors are set on their backcourt.

I wouldn't be suggesting for Evans to be coming off the bench. They could consider Thompson at the 3 or likely Thompson off the bench.

I agree though, it isn't likely at all, but I do think GSW is a team where Evans could be a GREAT fit, what with their spacing and his ability to penetrate and dish it out if necessary.

Yeah I agree with that. I still think if put in the right situation (and I think Toronto could be that for him) he could do marvelous things. I really think Casey and his staff could make huge strides with Reke. I mean look what he did with Calderon and the entire Raptors.

The Wolves are in dire need of a shot creator and ball handlers on the wings, but he doesn't help space the offense like we need our wings to do with Rubio controlling the ball.

Teams would just play zone against us and simply murder us with Rubio-Reke-Wes-Love-Pek.

I do think there is something to Golden State with Curry being more of a shooter. I thought Evans would have been a good pick for our Wolves back when we were rolling out Foye as a starting combo guard.

Yeah, Tyreke would be a great fit in Orlando. I don't know if they would want to trade two of their best 3-point shooters and a 1st for him, but it's an interesting trade. In that case though, I would probably want to draft a PF/C with the loss of JT. If need be, we could stick with JRich/Salmons at the 3.

Hes a talented guy without a position, sounds like a key bench player to me.

He can't really run the point. Isaiah Thomas is the clear floor leader. He can't shoot. He's an iso player at this point. He hasn't learned how to be effective without the ball in his hands the whole time. Basically he has an AAU game.

He hasn't complained publicly, but we don't know what goes on internally.

But theres no reason you couldnt keep Marcus at the 3 or have Kmart come off the bench.

Reke is a couple more undefined years from being a 6th man anyways.

Thornton couldn't play the 3. He's 6'3, though he does play bigger. I've been wanting Reke to come off the bench for awhile now. I'd rather put Terrence Williams as the starting small forward. Love his game.

He'd be a great bench player imo, but I think the role he probably should be in is as a starting SG on a team that has good perimeter shooting elsewhere on the team. If teams didn't have the option of just collapsing toward the paint without risking an open 3, Evans would be much, much more effective. Unfortunately, on the Kings there is absolutely no reason to worry about a perimeter shot. Tyreke has good passing ability and great length to defend the 2, so a team that can compensate for his weakness would be getting a great player.

It's a 3 guard lineup, but technically Reke would be the 3. He guards the opposing small forward. They are both wings, but the main difference is Thomas being the primary ball handler, which Reke isn't used to. So no, Thornton has always been the 2 guard.

Either way, prototyping positions is a thing of the past anyways.

KG at center and Melo at PF have proven that.

How is that project working out? You would really rather start him than Reke?

I have always loved T-Will and Im still rooting for him but when you guys picked him up I didnt see how he and Reke could play together, particularly alongside a PG. Hes more of a true SF than Reke so I can see why but I figured Reke would be way too talented to demote over T-Will

Well, going forward I'm all for trading Tyreke. Williams is the only guy on the Kings who likes passing more than scoring. He plays solid defense too, a rarity on the Kings. I really hope we re-sign him. He reminds me of Doug Christie, mainly because of his rare combo of a defense and playmaking.

They never should have made him off limits. He padded his stats on that losing team during his rookie year and ever since has been living off a perceived reputation that never was accurate.

Ultimately, I don't expect them to move him because his value is so much lower than a few years ago and that is a tough pill to swallow for any team moving one of it's top players.

Would love him on the Raps and would almost be willing to part with DeRozan for him. Having his play making at the 3 would help Bayless move into a starting PG role plus it would allow us to draft Bradley Beal to play the 2. Him being able to drive and kick would be amazing with Beal and Bargs spotting up behind the arc.

Not suprise at all that the Kings are shopping Tyreke Evans during this summer. Hes not a good shooter and he is only effective when he attacks the basket. Attacking the basket only and taking a lot of shots from field doesn't go together well. Tyreke Evans numbers has drop every year and his shooting isn't getting better.

Tell that to Dwyane Wade.

Thats been the closet comparison for Tyreke that I can think of and their shooting struggles are much similar at the same timeframe. Wade came into the NBA after 3 years at Marquette with a poor jumper and struggled when forced to hit mid-range shots as well as trying to figure his role as either a PG or SG. Wade at the time was a 22 years old rookie, which is the same age Tyreke Evans is now. He just spent 3 years in college while Tyreke was a 1 & Done.

The following season when Wade was 23 he fixed his jumpshot and became a Top 5 SG in the NBA. That was before he added other aspects to his game throughout the next 6 seasons that made him a Top 5 player in the NBA.

Either way, there is a lot of fair & unfair expectations being thrown on young NBA players who clearly are not finished products due to coming into the league at an early age. Tyreke is 22 and hasn't even entered his "prime" in the NBA.

Yeah, this is why I don't think the Kings should trade him. He's still so young and is one aspect of the game (albeit a big one) away from being a top 20 player.

Agreed.

Depending on what the Kings are able to land in the 2012 NBA Draft, they should make it a priority to keep Evans/Cousins & see if they can push for the Playoffs in 2013. If Evans plays well then you can discuss an extension, if he doesn't improve then he only hurts his FA value as a Restricted Free Agent.

They wont be able to find good value in any Tyreke Evans deal anyways.

Few teams want to trade a young player who hasn't reached their potential for another young player who hasn't reached their potential. Then as far as veteran trade targets go then you have to worry about them wanting out of Sacramento as quick as possible to play in a market they want to be in.

Raptors need a ball handler who can create offense for them desperately, would be a good fit. Orlando would probably be the team that had the most to offer and be most realistic at this time and could be a real 1-2 combo with dwight

He would fit in Orlando,they have to many 3pt shooters.Evans would bring them a guy who can get to the basket and create his own shot.

Anderson,Jrich,1rd for Evans,Thomphson

Sacramento
pg:Isiah,Fredette
sg:Jrich,Thorton
sf:Draft,Salmons
pf:Anderson,Hayes
c:Cousins,Whiteside

Orlando
pg:Jameer,Ish,Duhon
sg:Evans,Redick
sf:Turk,Qrich
pf:Thomphson,Davis
c:Dwight

Id do this trade in a heartbeat. Except id start tyreke at PG and redick at SG. Nelson comes off the bench. Id hate to lose Ryno, but with Thompson, Davis, and hopefully Fran Vazquez coming from Spain next year, i think we'll be ok.
This trade IMO makes us top 3 in the east. If we can add some vet wing defenders and 3 pt shooters and one of vazquez-davis-thompson surprises us, we can without a doubt compete with Miami and Chicago.

The Kings don't want or need a perimeter based PF who takes a bunch of 3's, if anybody hasn't noticed they need some help on defense at the PF position or C position. Just anybody who can contest shots and protect the paint so Cousins can stay out of foul trouble.

with their high pick this season and a draft full of PF/Cs i think Ryno can do them good. Put him out there with cousins to stretch the floor for him, and feed cousins in the post. Ryno provides spacing for cousins that will help him to develop into a better offensive player faster. Also the kings could really use a 3pt shooter, as their 3pt shooting percentage as a team is horrible (31%).

I doubt it.

Lins value is in selling tickets, he hasnt done enough to prove hes even on Rekes level.

Thats why the Maloofs would go over Petrie's head and do that deal.

Jeremy Lin is valued by Nielsen as the most marketable/likable player in the NBA, which for a full season on the West Coast(w/a huge Asian population) he'd bring in a good $20 Million alone.

The fact he'd give you maybe 14 PPG just is icing on the cake to them.

I'd hate to see that deal go down, but the Maloofs are shady enough to do it.

Id even bet Lin plays better than Reke lol, Reke is much more talented but Lin's got some real heart.

You do know that that is the next step for Cousins. Just because he gets in foul trouble doesn't mean the Kings want him to stop defending. Fould trouble is a part of the process for young centers. He is great at taking charges and once the foul trouble is past him he can be a great defender. He has the size and the quick feet. They need him to be a good defender and get his FG% up for them to take the next step. He has a great low post game and his FG% would be higher if he didn't take so many jump shots (he is a good shooter for a big man though). They can use a PF that can shoot and open up the paint for Cousins. Cousins is a great passer as well and doesn't have a problem passing it out. If they have a PF that can shoot, it would make it hard for teams to double him because of his passing skills and it will keep one extra defender out of the lane.
