NEW ORLEANS -- Yahoo! Sports is reporting that the Pelicans have an agreement in place to bring Sacramento guard Tyreke Evans to New Orleans.
Evans, 23, is a restricted free agent, so the Kings had the right to match any offer. They've agreed to a sign and trade with the Pelicans instead.
Evans will get a four-year, $44 million deal with the Pelicans. Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski says the Hornets will send guard Greivis Vasquez to the Kings and center Robin Lopez to the Trail Blazers as part of the three-team deal.
Wojnarowski also reported that Portland "will send future draft considerations and cash in the deal."
The teams have to wait until July 10 to make the deal official.
Evans averaged 15.2 points and 3.5 assists last season.
