NBA free agency update: Pelicans pursuing Tyreke Evans

NBA teams cannot officially "marry up" with free agents until the 10th of this month, but the dating process is in full swing: candy, flowers, the works.

All-star center Dwight Howard, late of the Lakers, is being courted by several teams, among them Houston, Atlanta, Dallas and Golden State.

The Indiana Pacers came to terms with former Pelicans' forward David West to the tune of $36 million dollars over three years.

As for the Pelicans, they reportedly have made a big run at shooting guard Tyreke Evans. We're hearing an offer of four years at $44 million is on the table.

Evans was the league's rookie of the year with the Sacramento Kings in the 2009-2010 season. He scored 15 points and hauled in four boards per game last season while handing out 3.5 assists.

Evans is, however, a restricted free agent, meaning the Kings can match any offer he gets.

Teams can agree in principle with potential signees, but cannot officially ink them until July 10.
