Could Tyreke Evans be 6th man of year candidate?
The career path is not supposed to go from winning Rookie of the Year to having your scoring average decline in each of the next three seasons. But after languishing in Sacramento, much of it his own fault, Evans is getting a chance to shine in New Orleans. Yes, the backcourt is crowded with ball handling scorers. All-Star Jrue Holiday and Eric Gordon are likely to start, which could work to Evansí benefit by making him the main offensive option off the bench. At 6-foot-6, he didnít like playing small forward with the Kings, even though it could be required in a pinch for the undersized Pelicans. Evans says heís ready and willing to embrace the sixth man role and with his dynamic talent, he could really shine.
