On your guys who have to step up next season list, Tyreke Evans should be near the top.He was the rookie of the year three years ago, averaging 20.1 points, 5.3 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game only a handful of guys have ever done 20-5-5 as a rookie. But the next two seasons he has both battled injuries and he never developed a jumper, which allowed to teams to sit back and cut off his driving lanes. His game has never matured.Next summer he will be a restricted free agent (there is little chance the Kings offer him an extension before the Halloween deadline). Basically, how he plays this season determines how he gets paid and where he plays next season.And he knows it. He was up front with Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports about it.
