METAIRIE, La. (AP) - Tyreke Evans says he's looking forward to playing alongside old friend Jrue Holiday with the New Orleans Pelicans and that he'd have ``no problem at all'' playing small forward.
The 6-foot-6 Evans, who visited the Pelicans' headquarters on Thursday, is a former NBA rookie of the year who has played mostly at guard during his first four seasons in the NBA, all with Sacramento. A three-team trade also involving Portland brought Evans to New Orleans, where he joins a team that already has a starting back court of Holiday and Eric Gordon.
Pelicans coach Monty Williams says Evans will be fine playing on the wing offensively, but that the team will have to work on preventing Evans from getting caught in too many height mismatches on the defensive end.
