Tyreke Evans Seeks Reinstatement

Tyreke Evans is hopeful of being reinstated soon by the league, JD Shaw of Hoops Rumors tweets.

Evans played in the league from 2009-19. He was dismissed and disqualified by the NBA in May 2019 for violating the league’s anti-drug program. At the time, the league declared Evans would be eligible to apply for reinstatement after two years.

Evans has been training in preparation for a return, Shaw adds.

Evans, 32, was the fourth overall pick in the 2009 draft and played for the Kings, Pelicans, Grizzlies, and Pacers. He had a down year in 2018/19 after signing a one-year, $12.4MM contract with Indiana, averaging 10.2 PPG, 2.9 RPG, and 2.4 APG with a career-worst .389 FG% in 69 games (20.3 MPG).

He has averaged 15.7 PPG, 4.6 RPG and 4.8 APG in 594 career games.
