Evans is the Rookie of the Year

Tyreke Evans will be named Rookie of the Year three sources confirmed. A press conference is planned for Thursday.

Evans will receive the coveted award in Sacramento, according to sources who have knowledge of the details but were unauthorized to make the announcement.

Evans was the fourth overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft and had one of the best rookie seasons in league history.

Evans became just the fourth rookie in league history to average at least 20 points, five rebounds and five assists.

Evans led all rookies by averaging 20.1 points. He was second among rookies at 5.8 assists per game and fifth at 5.3 rebounds per game. Evans' was second among rookies with 1.51 steals per game.

Evans is the first Kings rookie to win the award in the Sacramento era.

The last King to win Rookie of the Year was Kansas City King Phil Ford following the 1978-79 season. Jerry Lucas (1963-64) and Oscar Robertson (1960-61) won the award when the Kings were the Cincinnati Royals. Maurice Stokes (1955-56) won the award when the franchise was based in Rochester.

What You Should Know About Comments on Sacbee.com

Sacbee.com is happy to provide a forum for reader interaction, discussion, feedback and reaction to our stories. However, we reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments or ban users who can't play nice. (See our full terms of service here.)

Here are some rules of the road:

• Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "report abuse" button to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.

• Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.

• Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.

• Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand. If you want to discuss an issue with a specific user, click on his profile name and send him a direct message.

• Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.

• Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.

• Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.

• Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.

You should also know that The Sacramento Bee does not screen comments before they are posted. You are more likely to see inappropriate comments before our staff does, so we ask that you click the "report abuse" button to submit those comments for moderator review. You also may notify us via email at feedback@sacbee.com. Note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us the profile name of the user who made the comment. Remember, comment moderation is subjective. You may find some material objectionable that we won't and vice versa.

If you submit a comment, the user name of your account will appear along with it. Users cannot remove their own comments once they have submitted them, but you may ask our staff to retract one of your comments by sending an email to feedback@sacbee.com. Again, make sure you note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us your profile name.
