Tyreke Evans to work out for Warriors a second time after serving multi-year suspension [report]

After the trade deadline, the Warriors remained silent. Some expected the organization might be active in trying to lure buyout players, but that never materialized.

According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania and Anthony Slater, though, former Kings and Pacers forward Tyreke Evans could be an option.

He will work out for the Warriors for a second time. Per Slater, he worked out for Golden State in Miami last week and was at one point represented by general manager Bob Myers.

Evans had been suspended since May 17, 2019 for violating the league’s drug policy and was reinstated in February.

It’s not entirely clear where Evans — a former Rookie of the Year — would fit in if the Warriors made a move to sign him, but he’s a career 15.7 point, 4.6 rebound and 4.8 assist per game player, who could potentially be seen as a dynamic enough player to warrant replacing someone like Damion Lee.
