Pelicans GM Dell Demps has asked current players to reach out to Tyreke Evans about a possible return to New Orleans, per John Martin of ESPN 92.9.
Martin, a radio host in Memphis, isn't typically a big news breaker but it wouldn't be surprising if the Pelicans were indeed interested in Evans. He had a fantastic comeback season last year, thriving as a scorer and playmaker on the woeful Grizzlies. They surprisingly decided not to trade him at the deadline and had been adamant that they'll try and re-sign him this offseason, but the Pelicans are a far better option if he wants to win. Evans spent three and a half seasons in New Orleans earlier in his career. He's a prime candidate to be overdrafted in fantasy circles this year even if the Pelicans can offer him a sizable role in a backcourt that's a little thin.
