Tyreke Evans has been dismissed from the NBA for violating the league’s anti-drug program.
The league announced the ban Friday afternoon.
“The NBA announced today that Tyreke Evans has been dismissed and disqualified from the league for violating the terms of the NBA/NBPA anti-drug program,” a release reads. “Under the anti-drug program, Evans is eligible to apply for reinstatement in two years.”
The release also noted that the league is not permitted to discuss details of a player’s failed drug test other than to announce a suspension or dismissal.
Evans, 29, just completed his 10th season in the NBA. A pending free agent, Evans spent this season with the Indiana Pacers, his fourth team since being selected as the No. 4 pick by the Sacramento Kings in the 2009 NBA draft.
