Tyreke Evans rumors: Pelicans offered Kings guard $44 million

USA TODAY Sports

The Kings' free agent has a big ol' offer to consider.

The New Orleans Pelicans offered Tyreke Evans a four-year deal worth $44 million, reports NBA.com's David Aldridge. USA Today's Sam Amick also reported that the Pelicans made a substantial offer to Evans.

Evans is scheduled to meet with the Detroit Pistons and the Kings on Monday. No one is reporting that Evans agreed to take the deal. Evans cannot sign any offer sheet until July 10, though he can verbally agree to do so. Once an offer sheet is signed, if it is, the Kings will have 72 hours to match it as Evans is a restricted free agent.

We'll soon find out if that's a price at which the Kings are willing to match. If not, Sacramento could try to work out a sign-and-trade deal with New Orleans. Greivis Vasquez seems like an option given that the Pelicans traded for Jrue Holiday last week.

Stay tuned.
