  • Pacers&apos Tyreke Evans receives two-year ban from NBA

According to the NBA's policy, a player can be dismissed and disqualified from the league for testing positive for a drug of abuse, or if he is convicted of or pleads guilty to the use, possession or distribution of a drug of abuse.

The league can not announce specifics of what led to the dismissal, only that it happened.

Indiana Pacers free agent Tyreke Evans has been dismissed and disqualified from the league for violating terms of the NBA/NBPA Anti-Drug Program, it was announced Friday. He can apply for reinstatement in 2021 after two seasons away from the National Basketball Association.

Per NBA policy, this ban applies to a drug of abuse, rather than a performance-enhancing drug.

The NBA, teams and the Players Association are prohibited from publicly disclosing any more information on Evans' usage or suspension.

Evans, drafted fourth overall by the Sacramento Kings a decade ago, won Rookie of the Year honors following the 2009-10 campaign.

Evans played from 2013-17 with the New Orleans Pelicans.

Evans averaged 10.2 points, 2.9 rebounds and 2.4 assists for the Pacers this season, splitting time between starting and coming off the bench. For his career, Evans boasts averages of 15.7 points, 4.8 assist and 4.6 steals per game. However, Mark Deeks of Sky Sports NBA singled out where in the rulebook it says what has to happen for a player to be on the receiving end of this. 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.
