Tyreke Evans Disqualified from NBA for Violating Anti-Drug Program

An NBA outcast himself, former lottery pick OJ Mayo is about to get a new friend.

Similar to former Memphis Grizzlies shooting guard, Tyreke Evans of the Indiana Pacers has been dismissed and disqualified from the NBA as of yesterday after violating the NBA/NBPA Anti-Drug Program. The NBA did not go onto disclose any specifics related to Evans’ usage.

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

Once disqualified by the NBA for violating the league’s anti-drug, a player must spend two years away from the NBA until being eligible for apply for reinstatement.

Evans has just played out his one-year, $12-million contract with the Pacers and was supposed to enter the free agent market this offseason. The 29 year old has played 10 seasons in the NBA, winning a Rookie of the Year award in his first campaign with the Sacramento Kings. He has since bounced around the league, having a huge comeback season with the Grizzlies in 2018.

Most players who have previously received the two-year ban from the league for illegal drug use were eventually reinstated.
