Evans’ on His Way out of Sacramento?
Tyreke Evans counts the number of guards on the Kings roster. He hears the persistent trade rumors. He remembers that his bosses refused to extend his contract last fall.
Without issuing any trade demands – that’s not his style – Evans said he would be neither shocked nor devastated if he were sent elsewhere before the Feb. 21 deadline.
“The Kings need to do whatever they can to help the team win,” said Evans, who played Monday after missing 11 games with soreness in his left knee. “I just want to go out there and play every night. That visit to (Lombardo)? That let me know that I wasn’t totally wrong. I just need to get treated right. That was pretty much it.”
The Memphis Grizzlies, who are aggressively attempting to shed payroll and are shopping small forward Rudy Gay, have made inquiries. The Lakers and Denver Nuggets have long been intrigued. So have the Boston Celtics.
