Tyreke Evans Training In Hopes Of NBA Reinstatement

Free agent shooting guard Tyreke Evans is seeking reinstatement to the NBA after a two-year absence, according to JD Shaw of Hoops Rumors.Tyreke Evans

Evans, 32, was banned in May 2019 for violating the league’s anti-drug program. He was eligible for reinstatement toward the end of last season.

Per Shaw, Evans has been working out in hopes of return.

He last played in the 2018-19 season with the Pacers, averaging 10.9 points and 2.9 rebounds in 69 games.

He has also spent time with the Grizzlies, Kings and Pelicans, after Sacramento selected him with the No. 4 overall draft pick in 2009. He was named Rookie of the Year in 2010.

While Evans is hoping for a return to the NBA, he may be best served to first try a stint in the G League to get in some game action.
