Two notable things happened with regard to Tyreke Evans on Wednesday.

1. Tyreke Evans had a brilliant little game -- 21 points on 8-13 shooting, 8 rebounds and 3 assists with just 2 turnovers.

2. Tyreke Evans did not get an early extension to his rookie scale contract before the midnight ET deadline.

Evans wasn't perfect in the opener -- he had an atrocious five-second violation in the final minute of a tight game (yeesh) and took just two three-pointers in 39 minutes, which helped deflate the team's total. But he was really, really good.

Some teams got good deals on early extensions -- the Warriors inked Stephen Curry for $44 million over four years, which is a steal if he's remotely healthy. (If ...) The Nuggets got Ty Lawson for $12 million per year, which might be the second best non-max point guard deal in the league within a year or two. (Rajon Rondo still has that award.) But there were some bad deals, too: DeMar DeRozan for $40 million, Jrue Holiday for $41 million.
