Report: Pelicans to Trade Lopez, Vasquez for Tyreke Evans

USA TODAY Sports

Ailene Voisin reports that instead of matching the 4 year, $44M offer sheet Tyreke Evans has verbally committed to signing with the New Orleans Pelicans next Wednesday, the Sacramento Kings will instead sign and trade Evans to New Orleans in exchange for point guard Greivis Vasquez and Robin Lopez.

Between them, Lopez and Vasquez started 160 games in 2013. As usnfish wrote yesterday, the sign and trade removes any uncertainty that the Kings may have matched New Orleans' offer sheet next week.
