Janis Carr: Devin Ebanks (member him?) was suspended by the D-League for violatiing anti-drug program. Who is surprised?
Devin Ebanks (Texas Legends): Ebanks’ name is routinely volunteered by NBA executives and scouts — as the first or, at worst, second choice — when you press them for D-League names we can bank on seeing called up. Every day that he’s still in Texas — ever since Jan. 6 rolled around and NBA teams were able to offer 10-day deals — is regarded as not just a blessing but a surprise by the Eduardo Najera-coached Legends, who figured their top scorer would have been long gone by now. Said one Ebanks fan scouting in Reno this week: “He’s already been in the NBA and he does everything better than he used to.” Said another admirer: “[Ebanks] is a long, athletic, 3-pointer shooter who has NBA experience. Who’s not lookin’ for that?”
Q: Do the Sixers plan on signing Devin Ebanks from the dleague. Keith Pompey: Not sure. I was told that he [Devin Ebanks] was one of many players they have spoken to.
A source said not to read “too much into” the Sixers’ scheduled meeting with Texas Legends swingman Devin Ebanks at the NBA Development League Showcase in Reno, Nev. The showcase runs through Thursday. Ebanks is an intriguing talent. The 6-foot-9, 215-pounder averages 24.5 points and 9.7 rebounds for the Dallas Mavericks’ D-League affiliate.
Most NBA scouts consider Texas Legends forward Devin Ebanks the top D-League prospect. Ebanks spent three seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers.
Cuban was referring to guard J.J. Barea, who, while playing for the then Fort Worth Flyers of the D-League, tallied 43 and 41 points in consecutive games in January 2007. Ebanks, who was in the Mavs’ training camp in October, was 16 of 26 from the field against the Vipers, including 8 of 14 from 3-point range. So, are the Mavs prepared to give Ebanks another look? “If Devin does back-to-back [40-point games], now we’re talking,” Cuban said. “Eight for 14 on 3s, that’s not bad.

Devin Ebanks has received interest from the Orlando Magic, Atlanta Hawks and Dallas Mavericks, according to sources. The Hawks have been in contact with Ebanks for much of the offseason so we’ll see if they ultimately sign him. The Magic have been linked to Ebanks in the past. When Orlando traded Dwight Howard to the Los Angeles Lakers in a blockbuster four-team deal last offseason, the Magic were hoping to have Ebanks included via a sign-and-trade, but it didn’t work out. Ebanks continues to weigh his options.

Kupchak also added the Lakers won’t provide qualifying offers to seldom-used reserves Darius Morris, Andrew Goudelock and Devin Ebanks. But he said Morris is still invited to play for their Las Vegas Summer League team.
Lakers forward Devin Ebanks got banged hard outside an L.A. nightclub … when another car reversed into the luxury ride he had JUST gotten into — and TMZ got video of the LOUD collision. Ebanks walked out of Greystone Manor last night, hopped into the passenger side of a friend’s Mercedes sedan, and seconds later … a huge CRASH … as a Lexus smashed into them!
The Lakers have three unrestricted free agents in Earl Clark, Antawn Jamison and Howard. The team can also make Darius Morris, Robert Sacre, Andrew Goudelock and Devin Ebanks restricted free agents in July. Ebanks isn’t likely to get a qualifying offer from the team, which would make him unrestricted.
The Lakers won’t have much clarity elsewhere. They could use the amnesty provision on Bryant ($30.5 million), Gasol ($19.9 million), World Peace ($7.7 million) or Blake ($4 million). World Peace might opt out of his player option in hopes for a longer but less expensive contract, although that runs the risk of the Lakers letting him walk. The Lakers also will have expiring contracts to Antawn Jamison, Clark, Morris, Goudelock, Robert Sacre and Devin Ebanks, although the latter is sure to leave considering he’s rarely played all season.
