12 NBA Young Guns To Watch (If There’s A Season)

By: 11.10.11

Player: Tyreke Evans
Team: Sacremento Kings
Year: Third

Injuries somewhat played an issue for the 2009-2010 Rookie Of The Year. Still, Tyreke Evans is one of the most gifted players in the league and with a young, quirky and unique cast of characters being assembled in Sacramento around him, his third season could (and that’s the keyword here) be his breakout year. Playing in such a small market West Coast team – which hasn’t been on the national radar since the early 2000’s – is what hinders the casual basketball fan to truly appreciate Evans’ skill set. That being said, all it takes is one breakout year. He has 25-5-5 potential written all over him. — J. Tinsley
