Tyreke Evans: ROY!

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Sacramento Kings point guard Tyreke Evans beat out the Golden State Warriors' Stephen Curry and Milwaukee Bucks' Brandon Jennings to win the NBA Rookie of the Year award.

Evans received the honor Thursday after becoming the fourth rookie ever to average at least 20 points, five rebounds and five assists per game. He joined an illustrious club that includes Oscar Robertson, Michael Jordan and LeBron James.

Evans was the fourth pick in last year's NBA draft after spending one season at Memphis. He led all rookies in scoring at 20.1 points per game, was second in assists at 5.8 per game and fifth in rebounds at 5.3.

Evans is the first Sacramento player ever to win the award. Phil Ford, Jerry Lucas, Robertson and Maurice Stokes won it before the franchise moved to California in 1985. Via ESPN
