Devin Ebanks became an NBA free-agent for the first time in his career after the Lakers declined to make a qualifying offer. The months of June and July saw a flurry of trades and free-agent signings of some of the upper-tier players. Now as training camp approaches, the remaining free-agents are in the process of trying to earn a camp invite, or better yet, a contract.
After getting selected in the 2nd Round of the 2010 NBA Draft by the Lakers, Ebanks played sporadically over the next three seasons. He showed flashes of talent that were at times hampered by off and on-court problems. He started 15 Regular Season games during that time in relief of Kobe Bryant and Metta World Peace. Overall, he averaged 3.6 points and 1.9 rebounds in 63 total games played.
Now, he is on the workout trail, having finished up a workout in Orlando today for a tryout with the Magic as HOOPSWORLD’s Alex Kennedy reported. Ebanks tweeted that his next stop is in Dallas.
