We are approaching the last hours before the trade deadline, and not much has changed for the Boston Celtics.
It's starting to seem unlikely that the Boston Celtics, Philadelphia 76ers, or Denver Nuggets will end up offering a first-round draft pick to get Tyreke Evans.
He has also shown a resurgence in his 3-point shooting, shooting a silky 39.2 percent from beyond the arc, while making 2.1 treys per game - both a career-best.
He has found a comfortable situation in Memphis, but since the Grizzlies are 10.5 games out of a playoff spot, he will nearly certainly be helping another team down the stretch.
Name SearchWatch Service' James Ennis, 27, to Detroit for forward Brice Johnson and a second-round pick, according to ESPN. The Sixers declined an offer from Memphis involving Evans since the Grizzlies were asking for Dario Saric in return.
Will a team bend and offer a first-round pick?
In all cases, Memphis said no. The former University of Memphis standout is by no means a star player in this league, but he is arguably the most-coveted player in the trade market right now due to the unique skill set he provides.
It should be noted that Evans is set to become an unrestricted free agent after the season, so his suitors will have to decide if he is worth surrendering a first-round pick. Assuming this eventually changes, a lot of Grizzlies fans will be eager to hear his explanation for the trade that wasn't.
