Tyreke Evans reinstated by NBA after ban due to drug violation

Article Summary:

Just a season removed from a strong year with the Grizzlies and still having averaged double digits with the Pacers, Tyreke Evans appeared set to get a somewhat lucrative contract in 2019 free agency when the NBA dismissed and disqualified him for a drug violation.

NBA release:

The NBA and the National Basketball Players Association today granted the request of Tyreke Evans to be reinstated as an NBA player, after Evans was dismissed and disqualified from the league on May 17, 2019, for testing positive for a prohibited substance under the NBA/NBPA Anti-Drug Program.

His road back to the NBA isn’t necessarily paved from here, though.

Evans’ last season in the NBA was the worst of his career.
