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.

What Marcus Smart Has to Do to Contend For 2014-15 NBA Rookie of the Year

Aug 26 2014 6:23am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

While the NBA's Rookie of the Year award is somewhat of a booby prize, often going to a youngster who found plenty of playing time on a NBA cellar-dweller, it is also a decent predictor of future success. If Marcus Smart can prove himself worthy of the award in his first professional season, it will likely indicate that the Boston Celtics have a real winner on their hands. Of the 14 players who have won the ...

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 Orlea ...
