Tyreke Evans In A Magic Uniform?
I feel it's best the Kings and Tyreke Evans part ways...Tyreke played his best, his rookie season, at point guard...The Kings obviously don't care much to see him maximize his potential because they filled their team with an abundance of point guards and shooting guards, to the point they have him playing small forward...smh It's more DeMarcus Cousin's team now...Tyreke in Orlando, as the Magic's point guard, would be a great fit...Rob Hennigan is trying to duplicate the type of roster the Thunder have, and Tyreke can somewhat play the role of Russell Westbrook, a scoring point guard, that can board, and get people involved also...If the Magic can find a way to trade for him or sign him in next year's free agency, to lucrative deal, the Kings wouldn't want to match, that would be great...I feel Tyreke would be a great fit for the Magic, and can give them back a household name
he needs a fresh start..its obvious that he isnt at his best with the current Kings team which is like you already said baser more around DMC..Tyreke is type of player that needs ball in his hands as much as LeBron or Kobe does..He's a slasher,with tight handles and only a jumpshot away from being an allstar..Magic definately looks like an option for him,they also need fresh new face of franchise..
I'd actually love to see Tyreke in Milwaukee alongside Ellis (assuming Jennings is traded). Ellis is the undersized 2-guard, Reke is the oversized point guard, but both of them are really combo guards. They'd cover each others weaknesses and wouldn't be undersized defensively. Plus, they are a team in need of a big change.
As far as the Magic are concerned, yes. Just yes. I'd like to see it happen, it'd be great for Tyreke, and it would be great for the Magic.
Wherever he goes, I hope it's not a Beasley situation where teams don't want him to be part of their core they just want to see what he's worth.
Who do they trade to get him? This would have been a good deal when they had Dwight Howard and they could have worked out a deal that would send Evans to the Magic. Seems like Iggy would be a great fit for the Kings and a deal could have been made but I don't see how the Magic get him now.
I like him as a 1 as well, Milwaukee would be a good fit because Ellis and Dunleavy both have some point skills because he is not going to give you a ton of assists.
I would rather see Tyreke in Houston.
Tyreke Evans is overrated.
He's another player with a "superstar" ball dominant/isolation game, but he's just not good enough to play that way. Yea, maybe he can get his numbers, but his teams aren't going to be good.
He needs to close up some of the enormous holes in his game and become better at other things if he wants to reach his potential in the NBA. Right now, he doesn't have a position. He's not a point guard. He's not a shooting guard. He's just a very limited player who can only help you if he's dribbling the ball for most of the shot clock.
Agreed. What is good for Tyreke isn't necessarily good for the team. I don't think it is a coincidence that as the Kings tried to get better and acquired more talent that Tyreke's role continued to decrease. He went from having the freedom to dominate the ball, to sharing ball-handling duties with Beno Udrih, to being supplanted on the ball by the last pick in last year's draft, to being switched to SG and eventually SF. Think about it. If he's being shifted over in favor of guys like Isaiah Thomas and Marcus Thornton, how good of a player is Tyreke?
He's not good enough to be ball-dominant on a team with any winning aspirations with his game as is, even though that is the only way he can be effective Maybe if he became a better shooter and learned how to be more economical with his touches, but right now he takes huge chunks out of the shotclock and has to work so hard to get to his scoring zones because he does not have enough dimensions to his offensive game. He's very talented at getting into the paint, but it's difficult to be very effective on a consistent basis when the scouting report never changes, and teams play 4-5 feet off of him, guards go well under the screen on pick-n-roll and bigs just sink back into the lane just waiting for him.
For the Magic to acquire Tyreke, it would have to be another 3 way deal...Perphaps, maybe a deal involving the T'wolves, with Derrick Williams going to the Kings to play small forward/power forward for them, Tyreke to the Magic, Al Harrington & etc to the T'Wolves...T'Wolves would gladly welcome Al Harrington, their going with a more veteran roster, to help propel them to the playoffs, to make Kevin love happy enough to resign, when his contract expires. Cousins, Jason Thompson or T-Rob, Derrick Williams, Thornton, and Brooks, would make a good young team in Sac-town
The Magic could do a straight up trade with say Reddick as the salaries match quite nicely but the Kings may well try to unload a bad contract or two onto Orlando. If it was a straight trade then Orlando could easily send a couple of picks but I'm sure that the Kings would want one of Orlando's own picks at least rather than those generated from the D12 trade.
A lot would depend on how we feel Orlando would do next year, if we did factor in Evans then they could still well be a lottery team but maybe in 12 to 14 range which would not be too bad a pick to give up if Evans did start to fulfil his potential and any of the picks from the D12 trade are likely to be none lottery ones. Orlando would probably want Evans to commit to an extension before they traded for him as if they gave up assets and he then didn't resign, they could end up losing him if he became an unrestricted FA in a couple of years or have to match an offer sheet from another team.
If the deal was good to go then something like $50 million over 4 years for Evans would be seem about his market value.
Him and Stuckey are really similar. I feel the sooner people realize Evans is a shooting guard the sooner he will havae a chance to reach his potential. I feel like in terms of maximizing both Stuckeys and Evans Potentials both teams have done a terrible job. The Kings have put inefficient shot chuckers like Kevin Martin, Marcus Thornton and Jimmer next to him while the Pistons have put Allen Iverson Ben Gordon and a a disgruntled Rip Hamilton next to him. The pistons finally found the right combo with Brandon Knight and Stuckey as Brandon Knight is less ball dominant then the average point guard. He can also shoot 3s and space the floor and is very unselfish.
nothing like stuckey unless your talking height n weight. but agree the organisation have failedhim a lil in terms of maximizing his potential as well as effectiveness
The fact that they didn't move him on draft night means they want to keep him. They've been working with him and doing alot of training to improve his game. However, I do think there is a good chance he will be traded during the season if doesn't show any noticeable improvements right away.
Or it could mean that they tried to trade him but didn't like what they would've gotten in return. His value isn't exactly high after 2 straight years of regression while also being in line for an extension.
tyreke in van gundy system orlando in orlando would've been perfect situation for 'reke.
all those shooters ready to catch and shoot from the pg to pf position stretching the floor for him and dwight howard would've been really nice.
he probably woulda looked better taking on PG duties due to running a easier system...
I agree with everything IndianaBasketball said. I think people are sprung on the guy. This is similar to the Oj Mayo situation. They are totally different players, but same theme.
It's debateable. I don't care where he goes I just want to see him play for a good coach
Not much difference skill-wise really between himself and Born Ready. Switch their situations starting with college teams and draft position, and I'd expect Evans to still be on the bench while Stephenson would be getting headlines as an upcoming talent who makes terrible off-court choices.
Get him a jumpshot and consistent motor to go for rebounds and he may end up reaching his top notch potential, but 3 years in and really more regression than progression so I'm not expecting much.
