Will Tyreke Evans Start for Sacramento?

by July 16, 2009

Well, it depends who  on the Kings that you ask: “The new coach took his boss’ exuberance with a smile. Paul Westphal could only chuckle when asked about Kings co-owner Gavin Maloof’s statement during the Web cast of Monday’s NBA Summer League game that rookie Tyreke Evans would be the starting point guard ‘as soon as he steps on the court.’ Not so fast. Evans will be a big part of the Kings’ plans this coming season. Westphal, however, hasn’t committed to hand the team over to the prized rookie from Memphis. ‘I read that too,’ Westphal said. ‘I think maybe Gavin might have gotten it mixed up with the regular season and summer league…I haven’t made any pronouncement like that.'”
