07:18 AM ET 09.13 | Tyreke Evans wanted some certainty and stability -- and he believes he's found it with the New Orleans Pelicans, who reportedly met with Evans the minute free agency began. [Evans] signed a four-year offer sheet worth $44 million with the Pelicans, ultimately going to New Orleans in a three-team sign-and-trade deal, to move to a city he says he likes with a new team name, a new point guard in Jrue Holiday and talented teammates including Eric Gordon, Anthony Davis and Ryan Anderson. It also didn't help that the offer made by Kings brass "was not the same contract" as the one he ultimately accepted from the Pelicans. "Not even close, I don't think," Evans said. What he got from New Orleans was "definitely a significant upgrade from what the Kings offered."
