The Sacramento Kings have acquired point guard Greivis Vasquez
in a three-team trade agreement reached last week that sends Tyreke
Evans to the New Orleans Pelicans.
New Kings general manager Pete D’Alessandro said in a statement
Wednesday that Vasquez ”established himself as one of the league’s
most talented young point guards last season and we’re confident
he’ll continue this trajectory in Sacramento.”
D’Alessandro also thanked Evans for his contributions to the
Kings and wished him well in New Orleans.
Sacramento also received a 2016 second-round draft pick and
future second-round draft considerations in the deal, while
Portland acquired Robin Lopez and guard Terrel Harris from the
Pelicans in exchange for the draft rights to Jeff Withey, future
second-round draft picks and cash.
