Tyreke Evans told Derek Page of HoopsWorld.com that he does not know whether he will remain with the Sacramento Kings beyond this season. However, he also said that his uncertain future is not affecting his play this season:
“I don’t know yet,” Evans told HOOPSWORLD of his future with the Kings. “It’s still early. I’m just going to keep playing and see what happens from there. I got the Sacramento Kings, and the fans have been great to me since I’ve been here, so let’s see what happens.”
Evans, the fourth overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft and the 2010 Rookie of the Year, was perhaps the most high-profile player of the 2009 draft class not to receive a contract extension before the October 31 deadline. He has largely failed to live up to the promise of his outstanding rookie campaign, leaving his value in question and opening up speculation that he could be traded.
