The New Orleans Pelicans have made a four-year offer to Tyreke Evans worth $48 million. Sam Amick reports the deal at $44 million, but David Aldridge has $48 million.

The Pelicans plan on using Evans as a deluxe sixth man similar to the way the San Antonio Spurs use Manu Ginobili, according to Sean Deveney of the Sporting News.

Evans is a restricted free agent, giving the Sacramento Kings the opportunity to match.

Evans was the 2010 NBA Rookie of the Year.

The Kings met with Evans on Monday where the organization conveyed their interest in retaining him. Whether the Kings would match the offer from the Pelicans is unclear.
