The Pelicans (I still can’t believe I have to type that name) acquired Tyreke Evans yesterday in another big 3 team swap. The Kings were given General Greivis Vasquez and 2 second round picks, and the Trailblazers received Robin Lopez and Terrell Harris (the Pels also got Jeff Withey). It’s a curious move for a team that just successfully traded for another, much better point guard in Jrue Holiday, but what do I know. When the Timberwolves drafted 5 straight point guards a few years ago, that worked out so well for everybody.
