Jason Jones of The Bee reports the Kings could trade Tyreke Evans before the deadline Thursday.
The Sacramento Kings may not be done at the 2013 NBA Trade Deadline. They traded Thomas Robinson on Wednesday. And Tyreke Evans may be next, according to The Bee's Jason Jones.
Also hearing Kings could revisit dealing Tyreke Evans. His knee injury slowed talks when he might have been traded earlier this season— JasonJones (@mr_jasonjones) February 21, 2013
It's interesting that the knee injury and not the franchise's ownership uncertainty is credited with stopping the trade talks in January. I was certainly convinced before about 5 p.m. on Wednesday that the Kings would only tinker. But that's all out the window after the T-Rob deal.
Evans will be a restricted free agent in July as the Kings and the 2010 Rookie of the Year couldn't reach an extension agreement in the offseason. He was hinted at in Rudy Gay rumors, and the Mavericks, Grizzlies and Raptors have in the past said to be interested. The Celtics have been mentioned in past rumors, too.

Just told Tyreke Evans won't be dealt today by person familiar with the situation. Kings leave for ATL in about 90 minutes— JasonJones (@mr_jasonjones) February 21, 2013
