New Kings general manager Pete D'Alessandro said in a statement Wednesday that Vasquez ''established himself as one of the league's most talented young point guards last season and we're confident he'll continue this trajectory in Sacramento.'' D'Alessandro also thanked Evans for his contributions to the Kings and wished him well in New Orleans. Sacramento also received a 2016 second-round draft pick and future second-round draft considerations in the deal, while Portland acquired Robin Lopez and guard Terrel Harris from the Pelicans in exchange for the draft rights to Jeff Withey, future second-round draft picks and cash.
