Grizzlies: Evans trade 'offers weren't sufficient'

Grizzlies: Evans trade 'offers weren't sufficient'

The Denver Nuggets attempted to trade for Tyreke Evans with the Memphis Grizzlies at the deadline and presented two offers.

Ainge is a realist in that he knows a player like Evans won't propel them over-the-top in order to beat Golden State. The team really wants a first-round pick to part with Evans. Look for him to reenter the starting five in the Grizzlies' next game Sunday against the Thunder, with big man Jarell Martin likely heading to the bench as a result.

Tyreke Evans #12 of the Memphis Grizzlies dribbles down the court during a game against the Dallas Mavericks at the FedEx Forum on October 26, 2017 in Memphis, Tennessee.

Wojnarowski spoke at length about the situation, stating that, "Memphis still holding out for a first-round pick to move Tyreke Evans - and Boston, Denver and Philadelphia have resisted offers beyond either a young player or a second-rounder". When talks deteriorated to the point where a first-round pick was no longer on the table, Memphis pulled out, leaving them with Evans on essentially the same rental other teams would have paid a second-round pick to obtain.

Merkel achieves breakthrough in German coalition deal
Under the coalition agreement, the SPD will retain control of the foreign, justice and labour ministries among others. But now with a paucity of leaders, Nahles could be one of the SPD's last chances to rescue it from its misfortunes.


Meantime, assuming the Grizzlies and Evans do not go down the road of a buyout, his return to the lineup would mean a resumption of his audition for the summer free agent market.

For this season, the Grizzlies find themselves in an interesting position. But, with the deadline now past, he'll be sticking with Memphis, and reports suggest that they'll be looking to retain him with their mid-level exception this offseason. That's why many fans are pissed, and rightfully so.
