RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016-17

There was no outlook written for Tyreke Evans.

2015-16

Evans was something of a hero for the Pelicans last season, taking the reigns after Jrue Holiday's injury to effectively pilot the offense. Playing in a career-high 79 games—76 starts—Evans averaged 34 minutes per game to go along with 16.6 points, 5.3 rebounds, 6.6 assists and 1.3 steals. Where he struggled, yet again, was in his shooting from distance. Despite making a career-best 69 three-pointers a year ago, Evans connected at a paltry 30-percent clip. His free throw shooting also took an unexpected nose-dive, dropping from 77 percent in 2013-2014 to 69 percent in 2014-2015. With oft-injured guards Holiday and Eric Gordon expected to be healthy at the start of the season, Evans' role as primary facilitator—and potentially his role in the starting lineup—will be stripped from him at the outset of the season. However, given the injury histories of the New Orleans backcourt, it would be a safe bet to see Evans get more than a few starts this year. While previous head coach Monty Williams liked the idea of Evans coming off the bench, there is no guarantee new coach Alvin Gentry will have the same affinity for sitting the dynamic swingman. What will likely continue from the previous regime is Evans playing multiple positions to fill whatever the Pelicans' need du jour. The seven-year pro underwent offseason arthroscopic surgery on his knee, but that shouldn't limit him once training camp breaks.

2014-15

Evans was the lone Pelicans star to remain relatively healthy last season, playing in 72 games (22 starts) in his first year in New Orleans. In a career-low 28 minutes per game, Evans averaged 14.5 points, 4.7 rebounds, 5.0 assists, and 1.2 steals. Evans won't provide much help in the percentages categories. He shot just 44 percent from the floor and 22 percent from beyond the arc last season, but he is an asset in points, assists, and rebounds. What position Evans plays this season will be important to monitor. A year ago, coach Monty Williams utilized Evans as his sixth man, citing a desire to play Evans next to Ryan Anderson and Jason Smith. Now, Smith is a member of the Knicks, and Anderson's level of play is a question mark coming off of a severe back injury. With Al-Farouq Aminu and Anthony Morrow both moving on to new teams this summer, Williams' other options at small forward include John Salmons, Darius Miller, and Luke Babbitt. Evans should get consistent burn regardless of whether or not he starts, but it's worth noting that he's been considerably better with the first unit. In his 22 starts last season, he averaged 19.9 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 6.3 assists while shooting nearly 50 percent from the field.

2013-14

After the Kings selected Ben McLemore with the seventh overall pick in this summer's draft, Evans quickly jumped at the opportunity to join another organization, ultimately landing with the Pelicans in a sign-and-trade. A change of scenery is probably for the best for Evans, who saw his scoring, rebounding and assists decline for the fourth consecutive season following his 2009-10 Rookie of the Year campaign. Lost in the decreased production for Evans has been his improved shooting accuracy, as evidenced by his career-best 48 percent and 34 percent marks from the field and from three, respectively. Evans' role with the Hornets remains a bit unclear at the moment with incumbents Eric Gordon and Al-Farouq Aminu seemingly in line to start at the two wing spots, but at the very least, Evans figures to get ample run as the sixth man for a team with few other reliable scorers off the bench. Although Evans probably won't approach the sort of numbers that made him a budding star as a rookie, if fantasy owners can recalibrate their expectations and recognize the across-the-board utility Evans still brings, he should offer a satisfying return on investment.

2012-13

The emergence of Isaiah Thomas ultimately led the Kings to deploy the 6-6 Evans at shooting guard and small forward last season, roles probably better suited for his frame. Even so, Evans’ scoring dropped for the third consecutive season, as did his minutes. He managed to shoot a respectable 45.3 percent from the field, and supplemented his 16.5 points per game with a respectable 4.6 rebounds and 4.5 assists, although both were also career-lows. With a full complement of players healthy going into the season, the Kings could theoretically go with a small ball lineup in the backcourt in 2012-13, using Thomas at point guard and Marcus Thornton at shooting guard, allowing Evans to see time at small forward. In the frontcourt, the Kings added Thomas Robinson via the draft, a player who figures to be at the receiving end of several Evans assists, though likely with the cost of fewer shots for Evans. In spite of a potential change in position and the glut of duplicative talent on the roster, Evans’ value probably won’t fall too far, though the numbers of his rookie season (20.1 ppg, 5.3 rpg, 5.8 apg) seem like a distant memory. He’ll most likely be outpaced on shot attempts by the likes of Thornton and DeMarcus Cousins again this season, but somebody has to be there to feed them, and on many occasions, it will be Evans. For Evans to take the next step in his development he’ll need to improve his three-point shot and learn to balance his game to effectively capitalize on scoring from deep and from attacking the basket and drawing fouls.

2011-12

Despite being limited by plantar fasciitis in his left foot for the better part of his sophomore season, Evans played in 57 games, averaging 17.8 points, 4.8 rebounds, 5.6 assists, 0.8 three-pointers, 1.5 steals, 0.5 blocks, and 3.2 turnovers in 37 minutes. His foot has fully healed this offseason, and he continued to work on extending his shooting range. As he develops that skill, Evans will force defenders to play him further out, and increase his scoring output, his ability to get to the line, and his contributions in three-pointers. Now that he’s healthy Evans should also reclaim the efficiency from the field he enjoyed during his rookie season. The bottom line – we’re looking at a third-year player who might well be poised to join the elite.

2010-11

For fantasy purposes, it's not entirely clear how to classify Evans. Is he a point guard? His 5.8 assists per game from last season say yes. Or is he maybe a shooting guard? His 6-6, 220 frame suggests that's much more likely. Another possibility is to consider the personnel surrounding Evans. For example, shooting guard Kevin Martin started 21 games for the Kings last season. We can assume that Evans took the point during those games. On the other hand, the considerably smaller Beno Udrih started 41 games, during which we can assume that Evans was being given shooting guard duties. Really, when it comes down to it, the best way to classify Evans is "stud." After being taken fourth overall in the 2009 Draft, Evans emerged as the second-most valuable fantasy player among rookies, behind only Stephen Curry (who undoubtedly benefited from Golden State's up-tempo offense). Evans particularly distinguished himself in scoring (with 20.1 points per game), assists (5.7), and steals (1.5). His ball-handling duties actually increased as the season progressed, and he posted his two best monthly assist averages (7.0 and 7.5) in February and March, respectively. There are still certainly areas in which Evens can improve. Chief among these is his outside shooting. Last year, Evans only hit 25.5 percent of his three-pointers � about 0.5 per game. But Evans is at such an age (21 on September 19th) that he's very likely to improve that aspect of his game.

2009-10

Heading into the 2009 NBA Draft, many considered Evans to be the player with the greatest NBA potential. But NBA stardom is probably a year or two away. A long and athletic guard who thrived in John Calipari’s dribble-drive offense at Memphis, Evans is more a combo guard at this stage of his career. The best-case scenario for his development would probably be to spend significant time playing off the ball initially, a la Russell Westbrook last season. But Sacramento has one of the league’s better shooting guards entrenched at the two spot – Kevin Martin – and a point guard – Beno Udrih – that was a huge disappointment last season, so Evans may be thrust into the point-guard spotlight before he’s really ready.
