Former NBA Rookie of the Year Tyreke Evans is ready for a change of scenery, according to sources familiar with his thinking.

Sources told ESPN.com on Wednesday that Evans, frustrated by the state of negotiations with the Sacramento Kings as a restricted free agent, is determined to leave the organization and plans to sign an offer sheet with the New Orleans Pelicans on the first allowable day.

Although the Pelicans are technically still waiting for Evans to verbally commit to signing the offer sheet, sources close to the situation regard that as "an inevitability" by week's end. Evans would then formally sign the four-year, $44 million offer sheet on July 10 when the league's annual moratorium on signings and trades is lifted, after which Sacramento will have three days to either match or pass on the offer to the restricted free agent.

The Kings' position on matching such an offer to Evans appears to be in flux after Sacramento elected Tuesday to pull a four-year, $52 million offer to Denver free-agent swingman Andre Iguodala off the table. Earlier Tuesday, ESPN.com reported that the Kings had made signing Iguodala their top free-agent priority, which appeared to suggest that Evans was expendable, especially after last week's selection of Ben McLemore with the seventh overall pick in the draft.

Yet one source close to the situation said Wednesday that Evans feels disrespected that new Kings owner Vivek Ranadive had yet to make any formal offer aimed at retaining him.
