This is actually a big rumor, and important. Tyreke Evans has been "off the block" since trade season began. However, Mark Stein is reporting differently.
Latest word out of Boston: Celtics making deadline-day run at player they've pursued before ... Tyreke Evans— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) February 21, 2013
Kings, until today, have been rejecting all interest in Tyreke. But @mr_jasonjones of Sacramento Bee reports Kings revisiting that stance— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) February 21, 2013
How Evans fits in a basketball system has been an on going question, but his talent and skill level have always been apparent. Yesterday on Grantland, Zach Lowe published an interview with Keith Smart, where Smart discusses how Evans is learning things this season that he was never shown until recently. Smart seems to firmly believe the production trajectory for Evans is curbing upward, though how sharply is the important question.
This is one to keep an eye on.
