Even though Tyreke Evans can’t sign an offer sheet until July 10, the restricted free agent has agreed to one with the New Orleans Pelicans.
The Sacramento Kings will have the ability to match the offer once Evans signs the offer sheet, or they can allow him to go on his way.
The speculated deal is four-years’ worth $44 million something many don’t expect the Kings to match.
While trying to fit Evans under the cap the Pelicans would have to make some adjustments to their current roster. Already on the chopping block is center Robin Lopez, who the Pelicans are attempting to trade but will just as likely waive if, need be.
Of course the always talked about trading of Eric Gordon is on the table again, with Evan joining the team the backcourt would be as crowded as a Jersey Shore night club on a Saturday night.

Add Sacramento guard Tyreke Evans to the list of free agents the Detroit Pistons may be interested in this offseason. The 23-year-old, high-scoring Evans is a restricted free agent, so the Kings would have seven days to match any offer extended by the Pistons or another team.

First, accept that I'm rosterbating. It's July 1, I'm bored, it's hotter than a ************ here (or it's just sort of still air which is weird), and well I'm still kind of bored. I can't take a walk and mumble to myself while staring at WASP's in Land Park. So here I am.
Next, accept that I am hypothesizing that A) the Kings can work out a Sign...
The Sacramento Kings could very well let guard Tyreke Evans leave to join the New Orleans Pelicans, and in his place they’re going hard after free agent small forward Andre Iguodala.

Iguodala has garnered interest from all over the NBA since...

Doesn’t look like the Kings will match the offer.
I've been told 4 years, approx $48 million on Evans' offer. @daldridgetnt has it at $44 million. Either way, doubt Kings would match either.

The Kings had previously offered a four-year, $56 million contract to Iguodala.
