Kings officially acquire Vasquez

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.
