NBA News: Dallas Mavericks Sign Former Laker Devin Ebanks

When the Los Angeles Lakers drafted Devin Ebanks in 2010, he immediately drew comparisons to Trevor Ariza. While Phil Jackson never played rookies, Mike Brown gave Ebanks the chance to start in his second season, but he was eventually benched.

After Ebanks was arrested on suspicion of DUI earlier this past season, it signaled the end of his career with the Lakers. The team decided to not re-sign him, but one team does see potential in the third-year forward out of  West Virginia.

According to Alex Kennedy, the Dallas Mavericks have signed Devin Ebanks today:

This is the third Lakers player the Mavericks have signed in as many years, and all have not worked for Dallas. In 2011, the Mavericks traded for Lamar Odom, where his contract was eventually bought out by the team before the end of the regular season. Last year, Derek Fisher signed with the team and was later released because of personal issues.

It will be interesting to see if Ebanks will be part of the rotation. He has the potential to be a solid defender in the NBA, but doesn’t have the work ethic and determination to achieve his true potential. In three seasons with the Lakers, Ebanks averaged 3.6 points, 1.9 rebounds, and 0.3 steals.

    “While Phil Jackson never played rookies”

    One of the biggest reason the Lakers had a weak bench as the triangle years went on…

      We have been having the highest payroll in the league for almost 15yrs, and they all started when Phil decided to work with expensive FA instead of grooming our own draft picks. We have been loosing our farm while we buy from the others and with the new CBA, the worst penalty in the making is just happening.
