For a while now it has been rumored by many that the Sacramento Kings were looking to move Tyreke Evans. There have been conflicting reports from behind the scenes that maybe the Kings were actually looking to move Evans if they could get something good for him. As we all know when a player is constantly being brought up in trade discussions and his name is being floated around it usually means one of two things. One- he is on the block, or two- teams have called about the player and that player’s team is listening to offers.
On Friday, during the Kings-Lakers game, Kings beat writer Jason Jones sent out a very well-timed tweet that read, “The player the Kings could move if it lands a vet leader type is Tyreke. That’s what I keep hearing.” The genius behind this tweet, and the reason it was so well-timed, is because Jones sent it out right before JimmerFredette went on a scoring tear against the Lakers and so the tweet was probably not even read by most followers as they were busy tweeting about Fredette.
Now although this may not seem like a confirmation that the Kings have in fact put Evans on the block a report on ARoyalPain.com stated that even though Jones may not have provided us with great proof of what he “is hearing” Jones word alone should be worth a lot. As the report indicated, “Jones isn’t one to grasp at pixie dust in the air. If he said it, he’s heard it.” The fact that he came out and publicly said just reassures what we already rumored to be true. Tyreke Evans is on the block.
