The Kings certainly aren't acting like a team trying to trade Tyreke Evans.

Unlike last season when Evans spent much of the summer in Southern California working out, Evans has been in Sacramento working out with basketball president Geoff Petrie and other Kings staff.

Rumors persist involving Evans being traded, the latest being another proposed deal sending him to Houston that no one in our outside of the Kings has validated the proposed deal.

So, Evans is still a King that is working out with his boss.

Petrie is the man that would be trading Evans. Not that Petrie still couldn't decide to move Evans, but his personal involvement with Evans indicates he is invested in seeing Evans progress.
