Pelicans Reportedly Offer Tyreke Evans 4-Year $44 Million Deal

After receiving a qualifying offer worth $6.9 million from the Sacramento Kings, making him a restricted free agent, Tyreke Evans has begun meeting with other NBA teams.

First up shortly after midnight Sunday was the New Orleans Pelicans who have reportedly offered 2009′s 4th pick a 4-year deal worth $44 million (possibly more with incentives), according to USA Today Sports’ Sam Amick.

Should he agree to the offer sheet, it cannot be signed until the July moratorium is lifted on the 10th, and the Kings will then have 3 days to match. Evans averaged 15.2 points, 4.4 rebounds and 3.5 assists in 65 games last season and plans to meet with the Pistons as well as the Kings Monday evening, says Amick.
