The spotlight is on Chester’s Tyreke Evans as he gets traded from New Orleans to the team that drafted him, the Sacramento Kings.
Sacramento, known to some as the Siberia of the NBA, is nearly one of the worse performing NBA franchises in recent history. For Tyreke to leave there and come to New Orleans was a great opportunity for him to play with one of they most dynamic young teams in the league. But, it didn’t pan out as Tyreke can’t seem to shake the injury bug which has prevented him from ever playing an entire season.
Maybe he can restore some of that Rookie-of-the-Year energy he displayed in Sacramento and help turn them into a respectable team.
It’s totally up to Tyreke whether this trade is a step backwards or a stepping stone forward.
Best of luck, Tyreke.
