Tyreke Evans was reinstated in February but it appears that the 2010 NBA Rookie of the Year has his work cut out for him.

He reportedly worked out with the Golden State Warriors but it seems he will fail to make the grade. Regardless, the 32-year-old guard remains hopeful as he continues to look for an NBA team where he could get his chance at redemption.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, it appears Evans will be trying his luck with the Wisconsin Herd, the NBA G League affiliate team of the Milwaukee Bucks. According to sources, this will help the defending NBA champions evaluate him for a potential deal.

It has been almost two years since Evans played in the NBA. He was slapped a two-year ban by the league in May 2019 for violating the terms of the Anti-Drug program that prohibits drug use.

However, he was allowed to apply for reinstatement in 2021 and was officially reinstated on Feb. 14, 2022.

But given he has been out for so long, questions linger on his playing condition and health.

He last played for the Indiana Pacers during the 2018-19 season. He played in 69 games and averaged 10.2 points, 2.9 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 20.3 minutes of action.

His best years remain with the Sacramento Kings, a team where he played for five seasons. He averaged 17.2 points, 4.7 rebounds and 4.7 assists. His game declined after that.

However, Evans had a great season with the Memphis Grizzlies during the 2017-18 season, averaging 19.4 points, 2.9 rebounds and 2.4 assists.

This was short-lived when his numbers dropped with the Pacers the season after.

As things stand now, the fourth overall pick of the 2009 NBA Draft will just have to work on hopefully joining another NBA team. The G League route may be odd but appears to be the only sensible choice for Tyreke Evans for now.
