League executives reportedly feel that Devin Ebanks is "the early favorite to be the first call-up from the D-League Showcase."
Ebanks is meeting with the Sixers on Tuesday and has drawn interest by averaging 24.6 points, 3.0 threes and 9.5 rebounds per game with the Texas Legends. His numbers in the NBA have been far less auspicious and he's not on the radar in standard leagues. Jan 7 - 3:46 PM

Former Laker Devin Ebanks has committed to sign with the Texas Legends in the D-League.

Ebanks was waived by the Mavs on October 22. He had a rough preseason, pleading no contest to DUI charges on October 14. The point here is that he is sticking with basketball in the hope that another NBA team will give him a chance.

Devin Ebanks has been suspended two games for pleading no contest to DUI charges.

Ebanks is already a long-shot to make the Mavs' regular season roster, and a season-opening suspension won't help his chances.

Devin Ebanks has signed with the Mavericks.

This now gives the Mavericks 19 players on the roster. At this point, the odds of Ebanks making the team are extremely low. Even if Ebanks makes the team, he will have to compete with Vince Carter, Shawn Marion and Jae Crowder for minutes. He can be safely ignored in all formats and we're not expecting him to make the team.

Free agent Devin Ebanks is reportedly drawing interest from the Hawks, Bucks, Bobcats and Nuggets.

The 6'9" former Laker has shot 38.5 percent from the field in his three-year career, including 22.2 percent from downtown. He'll serve as emergency depth wherever he lands and fantasy owners can safely ignore him on draft day.

Devin Ebanks is not expected to return to the Lakers.

We all knew this one long before the Lakers season ended. Ebanks was glued to the bench and should have never been re-signed before the season anyway. He'll look to resurrect his career elsewhere, possibly in the D-League.

Devin Ebanks was not with the Lakers on Tuesday due to an upper respiratory infection.

Ebanks played once in January, twice in February and once in March while never tallying over six minutes in any appearance. Needless to say, his absence has absolutely no impact for fantasy owners or for the Lakers.

Devin Ebanks started at small forward in Friday's win over the Wizards, scoring eight points on 4-of-10 shooting with five rebounds and one steal in 27 minutes.

Ebanks is little more than a placeholder for when Pau Gasol returns, and will be limited to spot-start value in massive formats.
Fri, Dec 14, 2012 11:42:00 PM

Devin Ebanks scored a career-high 15 points with five rebounds and one assist in 34 minutes against the Knicks on Thursday.

Mike D'Antoni started Ebanks in the second half for Antawn Jamison, who was having some massive defensive lapses. Ebanks missed all three attempts from beyond the arc, but at least there's a glimmer of hope for upside. D'Antoni has a knack for turning trash into treasure in fantasy, but we'll need to see a lot more out of Ebanks to think about grabbing him in standard leagues.

Mike D'Antoni wants to find time for Devin Ebanks in the rotation.

"It's always frustrating not to play, but I have to remain professional and support my teammates," Ebanks said. "If I keep working, stay ready, my numbers will be called at some point." Ebanks' playing time has plummeted since his suspicion of DUI arrest and is not on the fantasy radar.
Wed, Nov 28, 2012 10:35:00 AM

Devin Ebanks had five points in five minutes on Saturday, his first action since being arrested on suspicion of DUI on Nov. 9.

Ebanks has a court appearance in early December, but regardless of the outcome he's not going to be a fantasy asset.
Sun, Nov 25, 2012 09:26:00 AM

Devin Ebanks, fresh off a DUI on Friday, is being shut down by the Lakers indefinitely.

The move makes sense, but he wasn't really contributing much to begin with.
Mon, Nov 12, 2012 01:55:00 AM

Devin Ebanks was arrested Friday morning on suspicion of DUI, The Los Angeles Times reports.

No further information surrounding the arrest was immediately available and for the moment the reported arrest has been lost in the news of Mike Brown's dismissal. Stay tuned to see whether Ebanks' arrest will cost him any playing time.

Devin Ebanks was the only Lakers player to score double-digit points on Thursday, as L.A. lost to the Kings and finished their preseason with an 0-8 record.

Ebanks scored 14 points with seven rebounds, two assists and five turnovers in 25 minutes. He would likely start and play heavy minutes if Kobe Bryant (foot) missed any games, but we never bet against the Black Mamba.
Fri, Oct 26, 2012 12:27:00 AM

Devin Ebanks scored 20 points off the bench in the Lakers' 103-98 exhibition loss to the Kings on Friday, hitting 7-of-10 shots (including four threes) with six rebounds and one assist in 22 minutes.

Ebanks opened some eyes with his play tonight, but he has practically no chance at fantasy value fighting for the scraps from Longshanks' table. And yeah, by Longshanks we mean Kobe.
