NBA Free Agency: Tyreke Evans May Not Sign Offer Sheet With New Orleans Pelicans

Tyreke Evans is enjoying his trip on the NBA free agency market this offseason and playing with the hearts of Sacramento Kings fans while received a massive, $44 million offer sheet from the New Orleans Pelicans.

An offer sheet he may never sign.

Let’s rewind a bit. Jason Jones of The Sacramento Bee has the full details of the massive offer sheet given to Evans by the Pelicans:

Sunday night, the New Orleans Pelicans met with Evans in Los Angeles and presented an offer sheet for four years worth at least $44 million, said a source familiar with the negotiations.

The Kings were believed to have no interest in matching the huge offer from New Orleans in order to keep Evans around. Turns out they may not have to anyway.

According to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski, Evans may never sign the offer sheet with the Pelicans:



We are not sure what the snag is here, as $44 million is a heck of a lot of cash, but it could have to do with the quality of both franchises. Evans could also be holding out to see where other superstars may land and if he can catch more money from another team that steps in at the last second.

Stay tuned.
