Milwaukee Bucks To Work Out Former Rookie Of The Year

Fresh off his reinstatement from a near three-year drug suspension, the Milwaukee Bucks will be working out former NBA Rookie of the Year Tyreke Evans, with the possibility of a potential contract offer.

NBA Insider Shams Charania reports that the workout will be in the coming days. 

Evans violated the league's anti-drug program in 2019 and was suspended in May of that year. Earlier this season, he was seen working out, and looking in very good shape, as he anticipated his reinstatement. 

The 32-year-old was the No. 4 pick in the 2009 NBA Draft, and won Rookie of the Year in 2010 with the Sacramento Kings, where he had several good years. He played 10 years in the league, as a guard/forward who averaged 15.7 points, 4.6 rebounds and 4.8 assists. 

The Bucks have one open roster spot, and adding a player with this type of versatility could help them in their stretch drive. Players must be on a roster by March 1st to be eligible for the playoffs, so any signing must happen quickly.
