Video: Tyreke Evans on Jimmer Fredette and the aftermath of the 2011 NBA Draft

Tyreke Evans wrapped up the second day of his two-day basketball camp at the Dr. Ephraim Williams Family Life Center in Oak Park.  If you recall, we were unable to get Evans’ comments on the trade to move down from the seventh pick and reacquire forward John Salmons yesterday, as the trade wasn’t made official until the second-round of the draft.  So with the moves officially consumated, the Kings guard was able to share his take today.

On Jimmer

  • Evans complimented Jimmer’s ability on offense, saying the newest King can “shoot from anywhere.”  He also wasn’t too concerned about the knocks on Jimmer’s reputation on defense.

On Salmons

  • Both Philadelphia natives, Evans didn’t play with Salmons during the Kings forward’s first tenure in Sacramento.  But Evans noted his familiarity with Salmons, having teamed with him on a few pro-am teams in Philly.
