Reggie Miller takes shot at New Orleans Pelicans over Tyreke Evans offer

tyreke-evansFollowing his Rookie of the Year campaign during the 2009-2010 NBA season, former Memphis star Tyreke Evans has largely been a disappointment for the Sacramento Kings. Evans’ assists and points per game numbers have decreased steadily over the past three seasons, and Sacramento has not won more than 28 games in a season since drafting him with the fourth overall pick in 2009.

Despite his dipping production, the New Orleans Pelicans have reportedly offered Evans a four-year contract worth somewhere between $40 and $48 million. While Evans is only 23 and has plenty of basketball ahead of him, that number seems awfully steep. What does the legendary Reggie Miller think about it?

I think Evans’ legs are probably a little fresher than the 47-year-old Miller’s at this point, but you get the idea. Evans is a restricted free agent, meaning the Kings will have a chance to match any offer he receives. If New Orleans did in fact offer that type of money, Sacramento will have a difficult decision to make with a player the team has not had many great things to say about over the past few seasons.
