New Orleans Pelicans make huge offer to Tyreke Evans


The New Orleans Pelicans have offered Sacremento Kings guard Tyreke Evans a four-year deal, reports USA Today Sports.

The offer is reportedly worth $44 million over those four years and could be worth as much as $48 million with incentives.

Evans is a restricted free agent, which gives the Sacramento Kings the right to match any offer sheet that Evans eventually signs when the free agent moratorium lifts on July 10.

Evans is also visiting with the Detroit Pistons before meeting with the Kings later today.

Evans, 23, was the 2009-10 NBA Rookie of the Year, but his scoring and passing numbers have declined each of his four years in the NBA.

Last season, Evans averaged 15.2 points, 4.4 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game for the Kings.
