Kings to trade Evans

Fri., July 5, 2013

Sources said the Sacramento Kings, New Orleans Pelicans and Portland Trail Blazers have agreed to a three-team deal that sends guard Tyreke Evans (pictured) to the Pelicans, center Robin Lopez to the Trail Blazers and guard Greivis Vasquez to the Kings. NBA rules prevent confirmation of trades until Wednesday. Sources said Portland is sending second-round draft pick Jeff Withey to New Orleans and a future draft pick to Sacramento as part of the deal, which was first reported by ESPN. Evans, a former Rookie of the Year and restricted free agent, averaged 15.2 points with the Kings last season, his fourth. The 7-foot Lopez averaged 11.3 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.6 blocks. Vasquez averaged 13.9 points and nine assists. – AP
