Tyreke Evans followed up a historic rookie campaign with what was quite possibly the worst sophomore season for anyone who has ever won the Rookie of the Year award.
To be fair, Evans dealt with a plantar fasciitis issue which slowed his penetration as well as his lateral quickness.
When the physical skills weren't there due to the injury, Evans had absolutely nothing to fall back on by way of his weak court vision and his nonexistent outside jump shot.
Tyreke finished the year with respectable season averages of 17.8 points, 5.6 assists and 4.8 rebounds but his shooting percentages of 40.9 percent from the field and 29.1 percent from three illustrate how unproductive a year it truly was.
Going forward, there are legitimate concerns about where to play Tyreke Evans. Shooting guard is a natural fit, but he can't shoot his way out of a paper bag. Point guard might've worked, but Evans is clueless at setting up teammates. The Kings aren't even considering moving their prized former Rookie of the Year, so his development means everything to this franchise.
