Blazers fan here. First of all I have been following The Saga on your excellent site since the news broke. The info has been great and the member enthusiasm very impressive. I wish you all the best of luck.
More to the point though, many fans over at BlazersEdge are interested in pursuing Tyreke Evans in the off season. The Blazers are in need of guard depth at both spots and certainly could use another play maker.
Tyreke will be a Restricted Free Agent of course, so the Kings can match any offer or make a better offer to keep him.
The Blazers will be under the cap, somewhere in the 11- 13.5m range this summer, but will most likely want to get at least two players with that space.
I, being impressed with Tyreke's improved efficiency, envision the Kings matching any offer up to the 10-11m range, while the Blazers would obviously prefer to offer in the 7-8m range. Somehow I just don't see Tyreke leaving without some team overpaying him (although with the new CBA, who knows?)
So my questions to the wonderful STR community are:
1. What do you think Tyreke is worth?
2. What amount do you think the Kings would go up to to match?
3. Do you think another team will overpay him, snag him away?
