What role Evans would have with New Orleans remains unclear. He played point guard his first two seasons in Sacramento, slid to shooting guard and even played some of last season at small forward — a position he felt didn't suit his strengths.
The Pelicans backcourt, as of now, would be somewhat crowded. They acquired All-Star guard Jrue Holiday in a draft night trade with Philadelphia last week, and point guard Greivis Vasquez and shooting guard Eric Gordon are still on the roster.
A sign-and-trade deal is also possible.
