With the start of NBA Free Agency just around the corner, teams around the league are beginning to line up their free agent visits that can begin once the clock strikes midnight on the East coast. One of the teams who has a planned meeting as soon as the clock strikes 12:01 is the New Orleans Pelicans.
New Orleans is looking to add to their back court and they will have their eyes on Sacramento Kings guard Tyreke Evans.
From Marc Stein of ESPN:
Pelicans will have a face to face with Tyreke Evans tonight after free agency commences at 12:01 AM ET, ESPN has learned
— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) July 1, 2013
Sacramento will have an opportunity to match any offer for Evans thanks to his restricted free agent status, but it appears very unlikely that the Kings would be willing to ante up and commit the money to Evans.
Free agency kicks off just after midnight, so be sure to stay tuned to FanSided.com throughout the free agency period as we keep you up to date with the latest news and rumors from around the league.
