Kings must get Tyreke Evans help this summer


By: David Kay

’09-’10 Season in Review:
The Kings suffered through their fourth straight losing season but showed improvement in the second year of their re-building project.  That improvement can be attributed to the arrival of the next big thing; Tyreke Evans (allow me to say “I told you so” as I have been high on Evans since seeing him in person at the 2008 McDonald’s All-American Game.)  Evans joined LeBron James and Dwyane Wade as the only players in the NBA to average at least 20 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists per game and has stud potential written all over him.  In the process of Evans taking the reigns as the face of the franchise, Sacramento decided to deal Kevin Martin partly due to the fact that they didn’t think Martin and Evans were the perfect fit in the same backcourt.  Martin was practically given away though as the Kings received Carl Landry and cap space in exchange.

Sac-town also found a steal in Omri Casspi who they took with the 23rd pick of the draft and has the makings of being a solid role player in the association.  On top of that, Donte Greene made strides in his second season in the league, proving to be a threat from the outside.  Second year post player Jason Thompson also remains a steady force down low with his rebounding but Spencer Hawes took a step backwards in his third season in the league.  With Evans on board though, the Kings have their alpha dog of the future.  Now they need to find the right pieces to surround him.
