Free agent wing Tyreke Evans is set to work out with the Warriors this week, per Shams Charania of The Athletic (Twitter link).
Anthony Slater of The Athletic adds (Twitter link) that Golden State first worked out Evans last week in Miami, where he has been training with free agent forward Michael Beasley and shelved Rockets point guard John Wall. Slater concludes that Evans’ performance must have merited a second look.
Last week, Evans worked out for the Bucks, who are fairly thin on the wing due to injuries and a deadline trade. The fit for Evans on Golden State seems less definitive, especially since the Warriors don’t have an open roster spot like Milwaukee, but he would add some size and versatility across all three perimeter positions and is a capable passer.
Evans, the 2010 Rookie of the Year, boasts a decade of league experience from 2009-19. Last month, Evans 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.

Warriors don’t really need him with Poole and Moody behind Steph and Klay (and DLee off the bench too at guard).
It’s obvious you don’t get the value of a vet in crunch time. As good as moody and Poole have looked you can bet they will not breeze through playoffs without issues. I’m pretty sure Kerr would like a ver out there at times similar to past dubs teams that had good vet backups.
in 2019 his sole skill was the rebound. he’s unneeded.
…and averaging just under 40% from 3…
Nothing wrong with a guy that can rebound.
What they really need is a center but there’s noone available. Zeller, Bell and Okafor are some of the best options. That’s how dry the market is. I guess they’re banking on Wiseman coming back strong.
Jackie Moon worked out too with GSW. He is talking come back and says he is the missing piece to another championship. Sign him up!
Are you kidding there is no way he signs with Golden State. It’s highly unlikely
