With season averages of 19.5 points, 5.0 assists, and 5.0 rebounds, Grizzlies guard Tyreke Evans is understandably one of the most coveted available players at this year’s deadline.

The Grizzlies are widely expected to find a home for Evans, as evidenced by the fact that they sidelined him on Wednesday as a way of protecting their asset.

The person spoke to USA TODAY Sports on the condition of anonymity because trade talks aren’t shared publicly.
Where will Evans end up?
