Former Rookie of the Year Tyreke Evans will work out with the Golden State Warriors, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania. Charania previously reported that Evans would work out for the Milwaukee Bucks as well. Evans has not played in the NBA since 2019 when he was given a two-year suspension for violating the league’s anti-drug program. He was recently reinstated and is now eligible to join a team for the remainder of the season.
Evans entered the NBA as one of the best rookie guards in league history. He averaged 20.1 points, 5.8 assists and 5.3 rebounds in his debut season, but steadily declined from there and has never matched that initial success. He averaged over 19 points per game in a bounce-back 2017-18 campaign with the Memphis Grizzlies but swiftly declined again after joining the Pacers. While he has always been adept at creating shots for himself, his 3-point shot largely hasn’t been a strength. He made 38 percent of his attempts in his last two seasons but is only barely above 32 percent for his career.
