For a while now itÂ has been rumoredÂ by many that the Sacramento Kings were looking to moveÂ TyrekeÂ Evans. There have been conflicting reports from behind the scenes that maybe the Kings were actually looking to move Evans if they could get something good for him. As we all know when a player is constantly being brought up in trade discussions and his nameÂ is being floatedÂ around it usually means one of two things.Â One-Â he is on the block, orÂ two-Â teamsÂ have calledÂ about the player and that playerâ€™s team is listening to offers.

On Friday, during theÂ Kings-LakersÂ game, Kings beat writer Jason Jones sent out a veryÂ well-timed tweet that read, â€œThe player the Kings could move if it lands a vet leader type isÂ Tyreke. Thatâ€™s what I keep hearing.â€ The genius behind thisÂ tweet, andÂ the reasonÂ it was so well-timed, is because Jones sent it out right beforeÂ JimmerFredetteÂ went on a scoring tear against theÂ LakersÂ and so the tweet was probably not even read by most followers as they were busy tweeting aboutÂ Fredette.
Now although this may not seem like a confirmation that the Kings have in fact put Evans on the block aÂ report on ARoyalPain.comÂ stated that even though Jones may not have provided us with great proof of what he â€œis hearingâ€ Jones word aloneÂ should beÂ worth a lot. As the report indicated, â€œJones isnâ€™t one to grasp at pixie dust in the air. If he said it, heâ€™s heard it.â€ The fact that he came out and publicly said justÂ reassuresÂ what we already rumoredÂ to beÂ true.Â TyrekeÂ Evans is on the block.
