New Orleans Pelicans reserve Tyreke Evans was at the center of a great story Wednesday, when he made a surprise appearance after initially expecting to miss 1-2 weeks with a sprained left ankle. Evans helped spark an OT win vs. Detroit. Unfortunately for Evans, he aggravated the same injury Friday vs. Memphis, forcing him to leave the game. Evans appeared to step on another player’s foot with 0.8 seconds remaining in the second quarter, causing the re-injury. Evans stayed in the game to shoot the subsequent free throws, but did not return for the second half. NBA.com

As a restricted free agent in July, Evans met with a number of teams including the New Orleans Pelicans, Detroit Pistons and Atlanta Hawks among others. After weighing his offers, Evans signed an offer sheet with the Pelicans worth $44 million over four years. The Sacramento Kings’ brass, who had the chance to match the offer, decided to let him go to New Orleans. Evans couldn’t help but draw parallels between the two processes. “It was like picking a school again,” Evans told HOOPSWORLD. “It was like a picking a college. You know, you’re meeting coaches and GMs, and talking about how you can help their team basically. It was a good process for me. Now I know, if I go through it again, what to expect. At the end of the day, everything went well.” HoopsWorld

“Ah man, it’s amazing,” Evans said of playing alongside Holiday and Gordon. “The way we have that three-guard lineup, three guards that can run, push the ball out in the open floor, I think it’s going to be tough for teams to stop us. [In the preseason], we’ve got it going a little bit, pushing the ball down the floor to get easy buckets in transition. That kind of makes it easier on everybody, when we all get out in open space.” HoopsWorld

So there's you, Eric Gordon and Jrue Holiday. It's a very poweful backcourt. How's that going to work? Tyereke Evans: That's a good question. I think we all understand the game, but at the end of the day, when the game is on the line, we have to create for each other, making it hard for teams to stop us. That's what we really have to work on. With us three on the court, we should be able to score at will. There's no way we shouldn't be putting the ball in the hole. With the talent we've got, that's the challenge for us, open the floor for each other. HoopsHype

Suffice it to say the mayor got schooled, but earned plenty of admiration with a stellar offensive move in the charity all-star game hosted Sunday by Seattle NBA star Jamal Crawford's basketball Pro-Am. The annual summer league brings together the best players from around the city and country, featuring current and former NBA, international, minor league, and collegiate players. The video on YouTube shows McGinn getting left in the dust by a vicious crossover move from Tyreke Evans of the New Orleans Pelicans that had him flailing at air. But McGinn more than redeems himself immediately after with a full court dribble followed by a beautiful no-look pass to a streaking teammate, who converts the layup and draws a wild cheer from the crowd at Seattle Pacific University.
