The details surrounding what happened with Evans are murky, as there isn't anything else out there regarding what led to the ban.

Former Kings and current Pacers guard Tyreke Evans has been disqualified from the NBA for violating the terms of the NBA/National Basketball Players Association anti-drug program, the league announced Friday.

Evans is eligible to apply for reinstatement to the league in two years.

The CBA also directly addresses the effect of testing positive for a "drug of abuse" as dismissal. He was drafted by the Sacramento Kings out of Memphis with the fourth overall pick in 2009.

Tyreke Evans #12 of the Memphis Grizzlies dribbles down the court during a game against the Dallas Mavericks at the FedEx Forum on October 26, 2017 in Memphis, Tennessee. For his career, Evans boasts averages of 15.7 points, 4.8 assist and 4.6 steals per game.

Evans, who signed a one-year, $12 million contract with the Pacers last summer, is coming off a season in which he averaged 10.2 points, 2.4 assists and 2.9 rebounds in 20.3 minutes per game. Others in the past include Roy Tarpley, Richard Dumas, Micheal Ray Richardson, Lewis Lloyd, Duane Washington and Stanley Roberts, many of whom were eventually reinstated.
