Two days ago, former Laker Devin Ebanks was working out for the Orlando Magic and we thought that was where would see him in camp.
Friday he signed with the Dallas Mavericks, the team announced.
Ebanks spent three seasons in the NBA with the Los Angeles Lakers, never really cracking the rotation in any kind of consistent way. Yes, he started some playoff games for them, but that was only because Metta World Peace was out.
This is a camp contract and Dallas now has 19 guys on the roster for camp, and they already have 15 guaranteed deals in place.
Ebanks is a 6’9” small forward who is athletic and defends well, but his shot is just not consistent. To put it kindly. Last season he shot 32.9 percent overall, 27.3 percent from three. That end of the floor remains his NBA downfall.
