The New Orleans Pelicans held a news conference yesterday to introduce one of their new players. That player wasn't Jrue Holiday, though, it was Tyreke Evans. The Pelicans couldn't mention Holiday's name because the trade with the Sixers that eventually will bring Nerlens Noel and a first-round pick to Philadelphia still hasn't been finalized. "Could be sometime early next week," said one source. The problem seems to be that Holiday is still on his honeymoon. Something apparantly has to be completed with him present, whether it be a physical or signing paperwork. So don't expect any Noel introduction (most likely not at the Constitution Center) anytime soon, at least not until early next week. Philadelphia Inquirer

Secondly, Evans wanted to stay in Sacramento with all of his heart. He had just moved into a new home. He has a free camp for underprivileged kids next week. He has family here now. But let me be perfectly clear – he wanted to stay in Sacramento for four years and $44 million. The Kings were straight with him. They told him how much they wanted him back and how much they thought of him as a talent. In fact, they went as far as to tell him they thought he was worth a four year contract at around $8-9 million per season. Is two or three million a year semantics in the NBA game? To some it is, but apparently not to D’Alessandro. Cowbell Kingdom

As part of a sign-and-trade arrangement, Evans will come to the Pelicans on a four-year, $44 million contract. New Orleans will send guard Greivis Vasquez to the Kings and center Robin Lopez to the Trail Blazers, sources said. Portland will send future draft considerations and cash in the deal, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. The trade came after free-agent point guard Jose Calderon rejected a contract offer from the Kings, league sources said. The Kings had hoped to sign Calderon and trade Vasquez to another team. Yahoo!
