People familiar with the trade say Sacramento, New Orleans and Portland have agreed to a three-team deal sending guard Tyreke Evans to the Pelicans, center Robin Lopez to the Trail Blazers and guard Greivis Vasquez to the Kings.

The sources say Portland is sending second-round draft pick Jeff Withey to New Orleans and a future draft pick to Sacramento as part of the deal, which was first reported by ESPN.

Evans, a former Rookie of the Year and restricted free agent, averaged 15.2 points with the Kings last season, his fourth. The 7-foot Lopez averaged 11.3 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.6 blocks. Vasquez averaged 13.9 points and nine assists.

Around the league

Knicks • Sixth Man of the Year J.R. Smith and reserve point guard Pablo Prigioni are staying in New York, as both agreed to multiyear deals Thursday, their agents confirmed.

Hawks • A person with knowledge of the deal says Atlanta reached an agreement to re-sign swingman and former Jazz player Kyle Korver to a multiyear deal. ESPN reported the deal is for four years and $24 million.

Cavaliers • Cleveland agreed to terms on a two-year contract with forward Earl Clark, who set career highs in scoring (7.3), rebounds (5.5) and minutes (23.1) last season with the Lakers.
