Here's a quick look at the Southwest Division as the Mavs get their presentation ready for the summer's biggest free agent..
- The Pelicans will have a face-to-face meeting with Tyreke Evans tonight after free agency commences at 11:01 central, tweets Marc Stein of ESPN.com. We heard recently that the Kings won't simply let Evans go – they'll look to match his offer sheet or get something for him in a sign-and-trade.
- Meanwhile, sources close to Evans tell Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee (on Twitter) that he's not meeting with New Orleans tonight.
- The Pelicans are expected to be one of several teams that make a push for Andre Iguodala, tweets John Reid of the Times-Picayune.
- The Mavericks are preparing alternatives in the event that Dwight Howard turns them down, writes Eddie Sefko of The Dallas Morning News.
