Tyreke Evans will sign a G League contract and is expected to join the Bucks’ affiliate, the Wisconsin Herd, Shams Charania of The Athletic tweets. He’ll be evaluated during his G League experience for a potential contract with the Bucks, Charania adds.
Evans has worked out for Milwaukee and Golden State this month.
As demonstrated in our current roster counts for all NBA teams, Milwaukee has an open roster spot. Evans could provide more depth at the wing position if the Bucks like what they see from Evans over the coming weeks.
Evans, the 2010 Rookie of the Year, boasts a decade of league experience from 2009-19. Last month, he was reinstated into the NBA after being suspended by the league since 2019 for violating its drug policy. The 32-year-old guard has not played elsewhere since his ban.
Over the course of his NBA career thus far, Evans has suited up for the Kings, Pelicans, Grizzlies and most recently the Pacers. In 594 games, the 6’6″ vet out of Memphis holds averages of 15.7 PPG, 4.8 APG, 4.6 RPG and 1.2 SPG on .440/.323/.757 shooting splits. During his lone season in Indiana, he saw his role reduced. In just 20.3 MPG, Evans averaged 10.2 PPG on 38.9% shooting from the field.
