Auburn Hills, MI (Sports Network) – The Detroit Pistons announced Wednesday
that restricted free-agent guard Maurice Evans has agreed to an offer sheet.

Evans spent last season with the Sacramento Kings, who now have seven days to
decide whether to match the Pistons’ offer.

The 26-year-old Evans played in 65 games and made 11 starts for the Kings in
2004-05. The 6’5″ swingman averaged 6.4 points, 3.1 rebounds and 19 minutes

seasons in Italy. He played briefly with the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2001-02
