The Philadelphia 76ers have expressed trade interest in Memphis Grizzlies forward Tyreke Evans, according to Marc Stein of The New York Times.

Memphis continues to seek a first-round pick in an Evans deal and the Sixers have remained reluctant to surrender one — which has proven the major impediment on this deal.

Evans has been rumored to be a definite asset the Grizzlies are planning to move prior to this trade deadline, given how he is having the best season of his career since his rookie year with the Sacramento Kings.

The 6-foot-6 dynamo is averaging 19.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 5.0 assists per game — a line that could take any team to the next level.
