Tyreke Evans Banned From NBA For Two Years

Tyreke Evans Banned From NBA For Two Years

Evans, who spent last season with the Indiana Pacers, has been "dismissed and disqualified" from the league over a violation of the NBA/NBPA Anti-Drug Program.

Evans is 29 and has played in the National Basketball Association for ten years, beginning with Sacramento, where he was the league's Rookie of the Year.

Tyreke Evans #12 of the Indiana Pacers shoots the ball against the Boston Celtics in game four of the first round of the 2019 NBA Playoffs at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on April 21, 2019 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

"We take these matters seriously and will reach out to Tyreke to offer our support", the team said in a statement.

The most notable modern day precedent for this type of situation would be O.J. Mayo.

The former Memphis Tigers star entered the league in 2009 as the Sacramento Kings' fourth overall selection. Others in the past include Roy Tarpley, Richard Dumas, Micheal Ray Richardson, Lewis Lloyd, Duane Washington and Stanley Roberts, many of whom were eventually reinstated. Evans was on a one-year deal with the Pacers and was going to be a free agent this summer.

Evans played from 2013-17 with the New Orleans Pelicans. He also missed three games late in the year because of personal reasons and a respiratory infection.
