The Sacramento Kings will send Tyreke Evans to the New Orleans Pelicans via sign-and-trade as part of a three-team deal according to league sources.

Sacramento will be receiving guard Greivis Vasquez in return for Evans, with Portland acquiring center Robin Lopez and guard Terrel Harris from New Orleans.

The Kings also come away with two second round picks from Portland, with one coming in 2014 and the other coming either in 2016 from the New York Knicks or in 2018 from the Blazers.

Vasquez averaged 13.9 points per game with a .433 field goal percentage in the 2012-2013 season with New Orleans.
