HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS — We made a lot of assumptions about how the Sacramento Kings feel about Tyreke Evans based on the fact that they reportedly did not intend to offer the former Rookie of the Year a contract extension from his rookie deal.
Evans himself apparently did not.
Despite being mentioned in trade rumors and various other rumblings with free agency on hand, Evans continues to grind away on his game, and per Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee, raise eyebrows while working through whatever drama comes his way:
The Kings certainly aren’t acting like a team trying to trade Tyreke Evans.
Unlike last season when Evans spent much of the summer in Southern California working out, Evans has been in Sacramento working out with basketball president Geoff Petrie and other Kings staff.
Rumors persist involving Evans being traded, the latest being another proposed deal sending him to Houston that no one in our outside of the Kings has validated the proposed deal.
