NBA: New Orleans Pelicans To Acquire Tyreke Evans in 3-Team Trade

Jul 4 2013, 8:09pm CDT | by

The New Orleans Pelicans are reportedly set to acquire guard Tyreke Evans in a three-team trade involving them, the Sacramento Kings and Portland Trail Blazers.

The New Orleans Pelicans are set to acquire Tyreke Evans in a three-team trade which also involves the Sacramento Kings and Portland Trail Blazers.

ESPN's Marc Stein cites knowledgeable sources when he wrote about the trade on July 4. The package would have Evans moving to New Orleans in a sign-and-trade, New Orleans guard Greivis Vasquez transferring to Sacramento and New Orleans center Robin Lopez going to Portland.

In addition, the Blazers will send 2013 second-round pick Jeff Withey to the Pelicans and two future second-round picks to the Kings. In return, Portland will acquire New Orleans guard Terrel Harris as well. Stein adds the trade can only be completed on July 10. 

USA Today Sports' Sam Amick notes the acquisition of former Philadelphia 76er All-Star guard Jrue Holiday via a draft day trade made Vasquez expendable. Vasquez's impedning departure may also mean Eric Gordon staying in New Orleans, per Amick.  

Scooby Axson of Sports Illustrated adds the deal sprang to life when free agent point guard Jose Calderon declined an offer to play for the Kings. His agent, Mark Bartelstein, said the timing wasn't right.  

"They showed him a great vision, made a great offer, but the timing wasn't right."

Evans, a restricted free agent, reportedly agreed to a four-year, $44 million deal with the Pelicans on Wednesday. He averaged 18 points, five rebounds and four assists with the Kings last season. 

Vasquez chipped in with 13.9 points, nine assists and 4.3 rebounds per game with the then-Hornets in 2012-13.  Lopez contributed 11.5 points, 5.6 rebounds, 0.8 assists and 1.6 blocks per outing with New Orleans a season ago.

Why the New Orleans Pelicans Could Be Next Season's Phoenix Suns

Jul 20 2014 11:59pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Picked by myriad pundits to finish at the bottom of the NBA standings one year ago, the Phoenix Suns instead authored one of the more pleasantly surprising seasons in recent memory, owing to a delicate combination of savvy offseason moves, actualized upside and—most crucially—infectious chemistry. From doldrums-dwellers to darlings, the Suns’ unexpected ascent is one many a franchise would kill to replicate. The New Orleans Pelicans might have the ...

Could Greg Monroe Be Perfect Frontcourt Sidekick for Anthony Davis?

Jun 13 2014 7:24pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The New Orleans Pelicans have experienced their fair share of failures over the last two seasons, but perhaps none loom larger than the inability to find a reliable frontcourt partner for star big man Anthony Davis to grow with. In Detroit Pistons big man and New Orleans native Greg Monroe, they could very well acquire a perfect fit. Up to this point, we haven't seen Davis with a player as talented as Monroe. Ryan Anderson ...
