Brandon Jennings, Tyreke Evans Reportedly May Be Traded Before Deadline

by December 16, 2012

The Bucks and the Kings decided not to offer Brandon Jennings and Tyreke Evans (respectively) contract extensions when they were eligible for ’em last summer, and so it’s believed that both teams are going to weigh trade offers in the coming months, given the obvious risk that Jennings and Evans could leave this offseason and leave their respective squads with nada. More, via Ric Bucher: “Neither Tyreke Evans, nor Brandon Jennings, were given extensions this fall — so which one is more likely to be dealt before the February trade deadline or play somewhere else next season? Put your money on Jennings. Several teams are already quietly assessing him to decide what he should be worth to them and the Bucks are aware of that. The Kings, according to a source, are simply waiting for someone else to set the value of Evans in restricted free agency next summer. While no one can quite figure out how to best use Evans or what position he plays, he is a massive talent. The Kings know all that. They don’t want to see that talent harnessed elsewhere. They can’t afford to see that. Now, I have no one from the Bucks saying that they’re ready and willing to move Jennings, but a source indicated he’s more inclined to make his way elsewhere than Evans is.”
