Players the Milwaukee Bucks could consider for final roster spot: Tyreke Evans

Given that Tyreke Evans has been out of the association for three years after violating the NBA’s Anti-Drug Program in 2019, this suggestion would have seemed far-fetched just a few days ago. However, The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported on Saturday that the Bucks plan to bring in the 2010 Rookie of the Year for a workout in the coming days to get a closer look at him, which could potentially lead to a signing.

Like Thomas, Evans would be another solid option to help patch up Milwaukee’s need for depth in the backcourt and second unit scoring. Prior to his suspension, Evans made a living in the NBA as a solid scorer, averaging 15.7 points per game for his career. While he started his career as a subpar outside shooter, the wing did show improvement as the years went on, knocking down an efficient 37.7 percent of his triples on 3.8 attempts over his last four NBA seasons.

While there is no guarantee that he can replicate that success all these years later, Evans could be a compelling piece to bring aboard for the remainder of the season. Above all else, the Bucks need someone who can score off the bench right now with Connaughton and Hill both out, and Evans is someone who could unquestionably help. This would be a low-risk move for the Bucks, especially looking around at the current state of the depleted buyout market.

Ultimately, it will come down to how Evans performs in his workout with the Milwaukee Bucks.
