The Golden State Warriors don't have a ton of space to work with in free agency this summer - that's what happens when Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green are on your team, after all - but the franchise is still attempting to pursue some top-level free agents.

Earlier in the week, it was reported that Golden State's top players wanted the franchise to go after Jamal Crawford. It looks like the front office might have its eye on another scoring option for the bench.

The Warriors will reportedly be "keeping an eye" on Tyreke Evans.

USA TODAY NBA reporter Sam Amick tweeted late on Saturday that there's some "buzz" surrounding Evans and the Warriors.

Warriors reporter Tim Kawakami had tweeted that he felt it was a good match.

"Don't know if he was high on their list, or what they'd want to pay him, but the guy left over right now at the top of the list I drew up for the Warriors is Tyreke Evans," he said.

Amick responded, saying he had heard it could be a possibility for the Warriors.

"Heard buzz about this tonight, and it makes good sense. And oh by the way, Tyreke’s former agent (Warriors GM Bob Myers) and former trainer (scout Lamont Peterson) work for the Warriors," he said.

Evans was one of the most-efficient players in the NBA last season, averaging 19 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists per game while shooting 45 percent from the field.

This would be a major pickup for the Warriors if they could make it happen.
