A summer in Southern California was all about this feeling for Tyreke Evans.

Evans felt a lot better Saturday than he did last year early in the Kings' training camp.

Coming off his Rookie of the Year season, Evans took a month off before getting back into prepping. He showed up at training camp not in the best of shape, much to the Kings' chagrin.

After spending much of this summer working out in Southern California, Evans said that won't be a problem this season.

"I feel good," Evans said. "I definitely don't feel like I did last year coming in a little out of shape. My weight is good, and I'm just looking forward to playing."
