Tyreke Evans has agreed to a one-year, $3.3 million deal with the Grizzlies, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of
That's a pretty good bargain for the Grizzlies with very little risk. It's a lot like Dion Waiters' deal with the Heat last year to give Evans a chance to show he can adjust his style of play to a changing NBA. Plus, maybe he can shake off the injury bug that keeps biting him year after year. Evans probably makes more sense off the bench with minutes in the 20s. Jul 7 - 2:08 PM

Tyreke Evans (toe) will not play on Wednesday against the Clippers.

He wasn't on the injury report earlier, but this is probably the least surprising news of the day. Expect Arron Afflalo to back up Langston Galloway against Chris Paul. That seems like a fair fight, right?
Apr 12 - 9:09 PM

Tyreke Evans is not on the injury report for Wednesday against the Clippers.

The Kings are razor thin, but who knows what they're going to do with Evans? If he does suit up, he has a high floor with Langston Galloway as the only other ball handler out there -- Arron Afflalo has played some point, as well.
Apr 12 - 5:31 PM

Tyreke Evans (rest) will not suit up for Tuesday's game against the Suns.

It's the first game of a back-to-back set, so Evans will be getting his usual maintenance day. Garrett Temple could get the start in his absence, and he could be someone to look at as a potential punt play in daily leagues. Buddy Hield should also see a slight uptick in usage sans Evans.
Apr 11 - 6:05 PM

Tyreke Evans will rest on Sunday vs. the Rockets.

In addition to sitting out on Sunday, Evans will miss either Tuesday's game vs. the Suns or Wednesday's game vs. the Clippers as well. Buddy Hield is the only wing you want to own in Sacramento right now.
Apr 9 - 1:36 PM

Tyreke Evans finished with six points, five assists, three rebounds and a steal over 28 minutes in Tuesday's 98-87 win against the Mavericks.

Evans missed Saturday's game due to a planned rest, and he looked like he was still sleeping in this one. The veteran swingman connected on just two of his nine field goal attempts, misfiring from each of his attempts from behind the arc. He is likely to rest one more time as the Kings wrap up the regular season with a back-to-back April 11 against Phoenix and April 12 at L.A. Clippers.
Apr 5 - 2:10 AM

Tyreke Evans, Langston Galloway, Buddy Hield, Skal Labissiere and Willie Cauley-Stein are starting vs. the Mavericks on Tuesday.

The tank rolls on. The Kings are missing Darren Collison (rest), Ty Lawson (rest), Arron Afflalo (back), Kosta Koufos (rest) and Anthony Tolliver (hip), so they will dress eight players tonight.
Apr 4 - 10:32 PM

Tyreke Evans (planned rest), Kosta Koufos (planned rest), and Garrett Temple (planned rest) have been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. Minnesota.

Evans played on Friday, and the Kings haven't allowed him to play in back-to-backs, so it was expected that he would be rested on Saturday. Arron Afflalo (personal) will return to the team on Saturday and will likely draw the start. Buddy Hield will continue to see plenty of playing time as well.
Apr 1 - 1:43 PM

Tyreke Evans started on Wednesday but finished with just nine points on 4-of-12 shooting, one 3-pointer, three rebounds, two steals and one assist in 25 minutes.

Evans sat out Monday's game and more DNPs are inevitable over the Kings' final seven games. They don't have any back-to-back sets until April 11/12, but there's no guarantee that Evans and other veterans won't be rested as a precaution before then. He's simply too unreliable to own outside of the deepest formats.
Mar 30 - 2:18 AM

Tyreke Evans is resting on Monday vs. the Grizzlies.

No surprise here -- Evans isn't allowed to play in back-to-back sets with the Kings in tank mode. With Arron Afflalo out for personal reasons, Buddy Hield and Garrett Temple are starting on the wings.
Mar 27 - 10:41 PM

Tyreke Evans returned as a starter on Sunday with eight points, four rebounds, two 3-pointers and one assist in 21 minutes vs. the Clippers.

Evans was coming off a day of planned rest, but he recently said that he's "getting into a rhythm right now." He's worked to develop an outside shot, in order to reduce the wear-and-tear of constantly driving to the rim, but Sacramento is still going to limit him to under 30 minutes per game down the stretch. Throw in the random DNPs, and he's simply not an appealing fantasy asset.
Mar 26 - 7:00 PM

Tyreke Evans (rest) is expected to be in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Clippers, according to Kings' Insider James Ham.

Evans will likely remain on a minutes limit today, and with 10 other games on the slate, fantasy GMs should have more attractive options to put on their active roster. With Evans active, guys like Buddy Hield and Ben McLemore will take a slight hit.
Mar 26 - 3:33 PM

Tyreke Evans will rest on Friday vs. the Warriors.

This decision is coming from the Kings, as Evans just said that he feels "better than ever with my knee." With the Kings tanking, he's going to pick up too many DNPs to help most fantasy owners. Buddy Hield and Ben McLemore should be busy tonight.
Mar 24 - 8:43 PM

Tyreke Evans says he feels "better than ever with my knee."

Evans is averaging only 22 minutes per contest and has sat out six of the Kings last 11 games. However, he believes he can handle a more significant workload. "I’m still maintaining," said Evans. "I feel better than ever with my knee. No pain, just playing free." Evans will be an unrestricted free agent this summer and is eager to prove he still has plenty left in the tank. "A lot of teams know I had tough injuries so they want to see how I’m moving, how I’m playing every night."
Mar 24 - 9:55 AM

Tyreke Evans scored 18 points with three rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 21 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday.

He did not play in the previous two games and will continue to be rested going forward. Evans will be a free agent this summer and it'll be interesting to see who pays up for him with all of his injury history.
