Kings trade rumors: Celtics making run at Tyreke Evans?

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The Sacramento Kings have been active once already before the deadline hits, and now the Boston Celtics have been rumored to make a deadline day run at Tyreke Evans.

The Sacramento Kings have made one shocking move prior to the trade deadline when they moved Thomas Robinson, and could now potentially revisit trading Tyreke Evans as the Boston Celtics are reportedly making a deadline run at landing him.

Evans is averaging 15.3 points, 4.8 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 31 minutes per game. Tyreke will be a restricted free agent this Summer. Despite general manager Geoff Petrie stating that the Kings would not be making any major moves prior to the deadline as the ownership situation is still a work in progress, the Kings appear to be doing the opposite as they inch closer to the trade deadline.

Amongst suitors? The Celtics, who have been linked to Evans in the past. Marc Stein of ESPN reports that the Celtics may make a deadline day run at the guard, though it's unclear what the premise of a deal would be between the two teams.

However, Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports has noted that both DeMarcus Cousins and Evans are under the impression they will not be moved in a deadline deal. Jason Jones of Sac Bee also reports that he has been told Evans will not be dealt.

The trade deadline passes at 12 p.m. PST, leaving only a few hours for a deal to be structured. The Kings have made one shocking move in the last 24 hours, could they be gearing up for another deadline move?
