Tyreke Evans has a four-year, $44 million offer on the table from the New Orleans Pelicans.
Evans could accept the offer from the Pelicans as early as Wednesday if the Sacramento Kings don't beat it.
The Kings have expressed a willingness to give Evans a contract with an annual average in the $9 million range.
Evans is a restricted free agent, giving the Kings the ability to match. The Kings could engage in sign-and-trade talks with the Pelicans for Evans.
