The Kings did not present Tyreke Evans with a contract extension offer this season, but that doesn’t mean the 4th year guard doesn’t believe he is the team’s go-to guy. Despite his name coming up in various trade rumors, Evans is the team’s second leading scorer, and the only player succeeding at getting others involved – averaging a whopping team best 3.7 assists per game. DeMarcus Cousins is next on the assists ladder with 2.3 per game. In the past 5 games, Evans is averaging 21 points on 56% shooting from the field – and he wants to do more. According to the Sacramento Bee: So if the game is on the line, he wouldn’t mind having the ball. “I want to try to take on that challenge if the coach puts the ball in my hands to make a play for me or one of my teammates,” Evans said after Wednesday’s practice. “That’s what I was trying to do (Tuesday) night. I thought I could have had the elbow jumper a little bit more, but I was looking for the assists, I was looking to pass the ball.” “
