Tyreke Evans Unsure of Role on Sacramento Kings

by August 01, 2011

The drafting of Jimmer Fredette has made things somewhat complicated not just for the Sacramento Kings, but also Tyreke Evans. ‘Reke would like some clarification when it comes to his role now on the squad. From Yahoo! Sports: “Did the Kings really need another scoring guard? Evans has welcomed the addition of Fredette, college basketball’s consensus 2011 national player of the year. But a month after the draft, Evans also has some questions: Is he still the Kings’ starting point guard? Or, is he being moved to shooting guard to make room for the heralded rookie? Team officials gave Evans no answers after the draft, and they can’t speak to him until after the lockout ends. ‘I don’t know how we are playing it,’ Evans said. ‘Am I going to be the point? Is he going to be the point? At the end of the day, whatever one they lead me to, I’m just ready.'”
