Potential Pistons FA target Tyreke Evans suspended by NBA for two years

Tyreke Evans has been suspended by the NBA for two years for violating the league’s anti-drug program, the league announced late Friday.

The league and players association are not allowed to comment or disclose information about testing or treatment of a player, the league noted in the release it sent out.

The Detroit Pistons likely had Evans on their short list this offseason as they searched for playmaking and wing depth.

That pales in comparison to Evans’ overall health and well-being, of course, but I know a lot of Pistons fans were interested in seeming him in red, white and blue even after his on-court struggles this past season.
