Tyreke Evans still on the block?
Does anyone know if he will still likely to be on the move before the season start and is Houston still a possibility?
I really hope the Kings don't trade him, I heard he's been working on his jumper and is refining all of his skills. Him with a jumpshot, plus DMC and T Rob is going to be scary in a year or two.
I actually thought he would get traded on draft night.
As Boston Kings has stated, he's been refining his skills on the offensive end. Most of them have to do with him moving off the ball. But the most key detail here, is who he he's been working with this offseason. Its none other than Geoff Petrie, he even shortened Tyreke's vacation time. You don't just give up on a player because they've had a tough time. You are supposed to develop them and if it seems hopeless you make the tough decision there after. I want to see how Reke responds next season knowing that he's been given the chance to succeed.
It would be a mistake to give up on Tyreke. If his jumper becomes passable... enough to keep defenders honest and make the open attempts, it will do wonders for his game. Improving his bball IQ will come with time. He has all the physical tools and skills to be great.
Tyreke def has game but the kings are hindering his development. They should trade him or put the ball in his hands more and let it be a DMC/reke show. All the other pieces could be great role players but the ball should go thru reke and DMC. If the Kings coach was like his last name says (Smart) he should look at the Pistons as an example. the teams are very similar. Detroit is better because they find how to make it work. Reke's game is the same as Stuckeys and reke can be even better. They should put him as a 2 like Detroit did with Stuckey. Isaiah can be the Brandon Knight of the team and dmc if he gets his head right is better than Monroe.
he will never be successful until he learns to play off the ball. to be quite honest, in a lot of ways he makes the Kings worse by needing the ball in his hands. he had a promising rookie season but many still had hoped by now his jump shot would be a little more consistent. the kings needed him before but now with Marcus Thornton who is a capable scorer and shooter and the emergence of Isiah Thomas as an ACTUAL point guard. dont get me wrong, im a big Tyreke fan but im being realistic.
Tyreke shouldn't be on the block but at the same time this is a make or break year for him. Dude has all the handles in the world and can drive with the best of em.. but his concerns for next season have to be his jumpshot and his ability to play a full season before the kings decide to let him go ...
So he's not on the trading block anymore.
I'm starting to think the same thing.
i wish they would put him back at the point. tyreke needs the ball in his hands. isaiah thomas was a good story last year but i think he is better suited as a role player and not the starting pg. get a decent shooting small forward to start and i think good things can happen
