Kings Extend Qualifying Offer to Tyreke Evans

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

In a bit of a formality, the Kings officially made Tyreke Evans a qualifying offer, making him a Restricted Free Agent.

In what is both a formality and a comfort, the Kings have officially made guard Tyreke Evans a Restricted Free Agent by extending him a qualifying offer today. By being a Restricted Free Agent, the Kings now have the option to match any offer sheets Evans may sign with other teams.

Evans has had a bit of a rollercoaster career to date. His first year couldn't have gone better as he won Rookie of the Year and became one of just four players to average 20 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists in his rookie year. Since then however he has dealt with injuries, coaching changes, role changes and more.

Evans is still one of the most talented players the Kings have had in recent memory and is probably the best two-way player on the team right now. I think the Kings will make every effort to retain him and hopefully develop him into the star that many of us hoped he could become. He will be just 24 years old next season, and serving under his 3rd coach in 4 years.

Sacramento also has the option of extending Qualifying Offers to forward James Johnson and guard Toney Douglas but as of yet have not chosen to do so. The deadline to do so is June 30th.
