The Pelicans have a press conference scheduled for Thursday to introduce Evans.
Point guard Jrue Holiday will arrive later. He recently got married. He came to the Pelicans as part of a draft night trade.
Evans was the team's primary target in free agency.
On my way to the airport, headed to N.O. for my press conference tomorrow. I'm excited to be a part of this young new team! #Pelicans— Tyreke Evans (@TyrekeEvans) July 10, 2013
