Tyreke Evans hasn’t had quite a great season like he did in his first, where he won Rookie of the Year honors. Although his stats say otherwise, averaging a 17-6-5 his second year and so far a 16-5-5 this year, he has become frustrated with the Sacramento Kings by how they have handled him.
Reports Sam Amick:
Tyreke Evans‘ agent, Arn Tellem, made a rare appearance tonight to express his concerns about the former Rookie of the Year’s role. He met with Kings basketball president Geoff Petrie, Evans’ brother, Reggie, and another Tellem rep as well. Source close to Evans says he’s frustrated with how marginalized he’s become. Evans’ reps are encouraging him to be more vocal about his perspective going forward.
Evans’ contract expires this off-season and many rumors have been saying that the Kings will probably let him walk, as he they plan to move on with Isaiah Thomas and DeMarcus Cousins being the core of their offense.
As for Evans, he just can’t fit anywhere. They have tried him in various places, even at small forward, but it hasn’t worked out. It looks like they’ll move on towards Jimmer Fredette and Thomas.
Besides, Evans isn’t a good shooter at all. Wouldn’t be surprised if the Timberwolves may make a run at him.
