AP Source: Pelicans make offer to Tyreke Evans
SACRAMENTO, Ca. - Two people familiar with the situation say the New Orleans Pelicans have made an offer to Sacramento Kings restricted free agent guard Tyreke Evans.
The people spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press on Monday because the offer was supposed to remain private. Several media outlets reported the deal was for four years and ranging between $40 million and $48 million.
Because he's a restricted free agent, the Kings will have the opportunity to match any offers Evans signs. Contracts can't be inked until July 10, after next season's salary cap is set.
It's unclear if Sacramento would match such a lucrative offer.
