Tyreke Evans: Defining the Proper Fit for NBA's Most Polarizing Playmaker
USA TODAY Sports

Tyreke Evans of the Sacramento Kings won the 2010 NBA Rookie of the Year award. Since then, it has been nothing more than inconsistency and uncertainty from both he and the Kings organization.

The question is, what would be the proper fit for the NBA's most polarizing playmaker?

Ailene Volsin of The Sacramento Bee reported in early January that the Kings were willing to listen to trade offers for Evans' services. It's not hard to see why teams might be intrigued, as Evans has an expiring contract and remains productive.

In other words, you can bring him on to contribute to the future of your organization or let him walk if it doesn't work out.

As for those who believe Evans has lost his edge, think again. He's currently averaging 15.3 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.4 steals with a Player Efficiency Rating of 18.20.
