Tyreke Evans dismissed from NBA for violating drug policy

The Indiana Pacers and National Basketball Association announced that Tyreke Evans has been disqualified from the league for violating the terms of the NBA/NBPA Anti-Drug program.

Typically, NBA players begin the off-season by flying to an exotic destination or traveling home to visit family and friends. Unfortunately for the twenty-nine year old free agent, Evans was notified that he’ll be ineligible to return to the NBA for the next two seasons.

The news comes less than a week after his exit interview with the team.

This is clearly not the start to the summer the free agent wing was hoping for.
