LOS ANGELES - Tyreke Evans will get a taste of basketball against overseas competition this week - but he'll have plenty of help.
Kobe Bryant and Derrick Rose are among the players scheduled to join Evans and a cast of NBA players for two exhibition games in the Philippines.
The Los Angeles Times reported Kevin Durant, Chris Paul, JaVale McGee and Derek Fisher are among the players also slated to play July 23-24 against the Philippine Basketball Association's All-Star team and the Smart Gilas national team at Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.
"I'm not sure about everybody but it's like eight players," Evans said. "It's a good look, especially a getaway to the Philippines, I've never been there. Especially playing with those guys I knew it was going to be fun."
Evans is working out in Los Angeles this summer with the likes of Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook and Atlanta's Al Horford in preparation for next season.
