Could Chester, PA native Tyreke Evans bring some “Philly Cheese” to the Miami Heat offense? Keith Pompey writes the Heat might think so.
Source confirms #Sixers are interested in Tyreke Evans, but adds #Celtics, #Cavaliers, #Pelicans, #Thunder, #Heat & #Rockets have all contacted the #Grizzlies about the Chester native. "It going to come to a team giving them what they want," the source said. They want a 1-rounder— Keith Pompey (@PompeyOnSixers) January 31, 2018
This is what the former Rookie of the Year brings to the table.
The biggest problem comes from the Memphis Grizzlies demanding a draft pick which the Heat can’t offer without a third team’s help.
However another angle to the saga is Marc Gasol’s wearing out his welcome in Memphis. A change of scenery for Gasol and Hassan Whiteside might work out best for both of them.
The trade machine confirms a Evans plus Gasol for Whiteside swap works.
News that both Evans and Whiteside are currently inactive adds further intrigue to the drama.
The Grizzlies get a younger player, while the Heat significantly upgrade their offense, with Evans and Gasol in the lineup, in an attempt to secure a top-4 seed this season.
