07:11 AM ET 07.03 | This is an awfully good week to be Tyreke Evans. [Evans] will meet with the Atlanta Hawks today and possibly one more team as the restricted free agent continues to field suitors. Evans already has an offer on the table from the New Orleans Pelicans for four years worth at least $44 million. The Kings met with Evans Monday evening to express their desire to keep Evans. A source speaking on the condition of anonymity because negotiations are ongoing, indicated the Kings are considering matching the offer, even though the Pelicans' offer sheet is above what they thought Evans would receive from another team. Evans could decide to accept the offer from the Pelicans and sign an offer sheet July 10.

This guy could work well on a playoff team.

The bottom feeders are forced to overpay for talent to hope to be a playoff team. The Pelicans need a SF badly and I guess will make Tyreke the second highest player on the team to do it. I believe the Kings will match.

I rather have both walk and have cap space for something else.

QUOTE(#6):

but tyreke isn't a SFnot even close

In today's NBA that is what he is. His issue is he good enough handling and the size wize that he can play the SF-SG and a little bit point. The NBA is full of these hybrid types that are able to play at least two positions. Especially SG/SF. They are trying to get him to play SF or SG. They would have to move Gordon to get him to play SG. He has a good handle but not a good passer to be at the point for a long time. His shot is not good enough or consistent enough to be a go to scorer. So on that note that makes him a conflicted player. Part SF-SG and enough skills to run point breifly.
