Tyreke Evans Says Thomas Robinson Was Frustrated As A Sacramento King

Run up and down the Sacramento Kings’ roster and chances are – you’ll find a player that is either currently or at the least, has been frustrated with his situation. Apparently for the now traded Thomas Robinson, it was no different. Speaking to Hoopsworld, Tyreke Evans, who’s also been rumored to have been less than thrilled with his Sacramento situation in the past said the former Jayhawk was growing tired of his time in Sacramento:

“[Robinson] is going to be pretty good,” Evans told HOOPSWORLD. “He’s young and got a lot of talent. He was a little frustrated here, but the same thing [happened] with (current Utah Jazz forward) Derrick Favors. He was in New Jersey frustrated, went to Utah and now he’s playing good.”

Robinson, who’s dealt with some of the most difficult circumstances one can in life, has an all-world heart both on and off of the court, though, there were some that expressed frustration with his cockiness on that said floor.

With that said though, on a team who’ll be pushing thirty wins if they’re lucky, it’s difficult and frustrating to watch a top five pick struggle to find minutes – especially given his solid play outside of December where the athletic big man struggled.

What’s done is done – though, it’s hard not to imagine King fans looking back on this deal in a few years and still not shake their head.
