The Sacramento Kings have enough to worry about. On top of consistently being one of the worst teams in the league in recent history, they have the headache that is talented big man DeMarcus Cousins. Now, they seem to have even more trouble. Former Rookie of the Year Tyreke Evans reportedly is very unhappy that the team has been using him as their small forward. Evans primarily played point guard his rookie year, which is where he was most successful. However, due to his size/athleticism, and the flooding of guards onto the team’s roster, he has been moved to small forward from time to time, most notably late last season. It’s an experiment that Sacramento thought might pay dividends by having extra playmakers on the floor, with the possibility of having Thomas/Thorton/Evans in the game all at once. But Tyreke is having absolutely none of that. He has made it clear to the team that he wants to be a ball handling guard, and not a wing player. Evans has very recently been linked to Houston Rockets and Toronto Raptors with the draft upcoming. Rumors were flying about a trade that would send the number 5 pick and Evans to Houston for Kyle Lowry and two first round picks. This would allow the Rockets to offer the number 5 pick, number 18 pick, Tyreke Evans, and Kevin Martin to Orlando for Dwight Howard. Wherever he ends up, Evans is a very talented player and has a ton of upside to be an extremely good player in this league. Sacramento should strongly consider inserting him back as their starting point guard or trade him, because he doesn’t seem content with anything else.
