Grizzlies’ Evans drawing trade interest

Tyreke Evans of the Grizzlies remains a hot commodity as the NBA trade deadline approaches.

Memphis Grizzlies swingman Tyreke Evans is drawing interest from potential trade partners, according to a report from the Sporting News.

Evans has been great for the Grizz, but the team is struggling and may want to make a change. Evans, 28, could potentially bring the most in return.

Per Sporting News:

“Even if the Grizzlies don’t go for the blockbuster involving center Marc Gasol — and they will pursue Gasol deals right through the February deadline — expect them to be busy as they continue to reconfigure the roster. They’ve gotten a big boost from the play of guard Tyreke Evans, who seems to have rediscovered his game in Memphis, and they have already received significant interest. He’d be an ideal bench scorer.”

Evans is averaging 18.3 points and 4.8 rebounds in 30 games this season, his first with Memphis.
