Report: Grizzlies plan to sit Tyreke Evans while trying to trade him

The Memphis Grizzlies are planning to sit Tyreke Evans while they look to trade him, according to a report.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Memphis’ front office plans to sit Evans beginning with the team’s game against the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night.

The idea is that they are protecting Evans from getting injured before they have a chance to trade him.

Earlier on Wednesday, The New York Times’ Marc Stein reported that the Philadelphia 76ers expressed interest in Evans. He says the Grizzlies want a first-round pick in return for the guard.

Evans is averaging 19.5 points, five rebounds and five assists per game for Memphis this season. These are his best numbers since his rookie season with Sacramento.
