Tyreke Evans To Play for Team Philly?

Tyreke Evans wants to ball. Specifically, for Team Philly when it takes on a squad put together by Carmelo Anthony at the end of the month at the Palestra. Said Evans: “I would love to play in the game. Why not? What else is there to do.” Preach, Tyreke, preach. More from the Philadelphia Daily News: “Evans has been working out this summer in Santa Monica and was scheduled to return to the West Coast prior to the game, but he will remain in the area. He said he plans to reach out to Hakim Warrick, who is helping to organize the game. “Melo told me he was bringing a squad that can’t be beat so I have a few ‘all star’ surprises for him when my team takes the court on September 25,” Warrick said in a press release. The Anthony team is set to include megastars LeBron James (Miami), Kevin Durant (Oklahoma City) and Chris Paul (New Orleans). The team could also include former La Salle star Gary Neal (San Antonio), Eric Bledsoe (Los Angeles Clippers), Donte Greene (Sacramento) and Josh Selby (Memphis). Slated to be headlining the Philly team is 76ers guard Lou Williams. He is supposed to be joined by Episcopal Academy grad Wayne Ellington (Minnesota), South Jersey native Jason Thompson (Sacramento) and Friends’ Central product Hakim Warrick, now with the Suns.”

    AO can’t even play on a high level summer league team in Philly anymore. However, Flip Murray better be playing.

    Not if Brandon Jennings has anything to say about it. Always thought AI was from the Virginia area.
