The NBA has suspended Sacramento Kings guard Tyreke Evans for one game without pay for reckless driving after he was caught speeding up to 130 mph by the California Highway Patrol on Memorial Day.

Evans, who won the NBA Rookie of the Year Award last season, will miss the Kings’ first game on Oct. 27 at Minnesota against the Timberwolves but will still be able to play in the preseason games.

Evans was sentenced to three years of informal probation, 80 hours of alternative sentencing and his driver’s license was suspended for 30 days after pleading no contest to the offense.

He is also scheduled to appear in one more CHP Smart Start Driving class after participating in his first.

  1. While I feel sorry for Evans for his suspension, I am also grateful, on the other hand, that we have alternative sentencing program that gives chances to minor offenders such as what Evans did. I just hope that this program will really help minor offenders to be careful next time around.
