Devin Ebanks

  1. Dallas Mavericks waive Fab Melo, Renaldo Balkman

    Oct 22, 2013, 7:18 PM EDT

    Fab Melo

    They were long shots when they walked in the door — Dallas had 15 guaranteed contracts on the roster already — and on Tuesday the ax fell. The Dallas Mavericks waived Fab Melo and Renaldo Balkman, the team announced Tuesday. In the case of Melo his possible return to the NBA some day will be…

  2. Mavericks’ Ebanks suspended two games for DUI… if he makes the roster

    Oct 14, 2013, 1:20 PM EDT

    Devin Ebanks

    Devin Ebanks signed on to the Dallas Mavericks training camp knowing that it was very unlikely he would make the opening day roster — Dallas already had 15 guaranteed contracts in place. It’s just that Ebanks didn’t have a ton of other options. Now if he does make the roster in Dallas — or anywhere…

  3. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Los Angeles Lakers

    Oct 14, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    Last season: It was supposed to be yet another year spent contending for a championship for a storied Lakers franchise that already has 16 of them. L.A. loaded up with free agent talent in Dwight Howard and Steve Nash, and was on paper the team most believed would stand in the way of a second straight…

  4. Dallas Mavericks sign Devin Ebanks for training camp

    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…

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points almost as much as we love draft rumors… • It’s time for a lesson…

  6. Kobe will be back, but what do Lakers do this summer now?

    Apr 13, 2013, 11:02 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Lakers

    Kobe Bryant isn’t going to let his career end this way, limping off the court with a torn Achilles tendon. It is going to end on his terns. He would not allow it to be any other way. He will be back. An hour after he limped off the court he was telling the media…

  7. PBT’s trade deadline tracker — up to minute news, analysis

    Feb 21, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Indiana Pacers - Game Two

    Trade deadline day in the NBA can be ridiculously hard to keep up with as reality and rumor collide. We understand. That’s why we’re here to help. This is our trade deadline day deal tracker — the one place where all the NBA’s trade deadline news and rumors will be. Plus you get our thoughts…

  8. A list of NBA players who can veto or block trades in 2013

    Jan 13, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Denver Nuggets

    Excellent information from Marc Stein of ESPN.com in his weekend column, where he details the circumstances surrounding the ability of various players to either block or veto a trade involving them this season. There are 19 players in total that can throw a wrench in their respective team’s trade talks if they so choose, due…

  9. Lakers snap four-game losing streak with win over Wizards

    Dec 14, 2012, 10:19 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Washington Wizards

    It’s been an ugly stretch for the Lakers recently. With the team losing four straight and six of its last seven, a win by any means necessary would be welcome in Los Angeles — even against the team with the league’s worst record, the Washington Wizards. Thursday night’s destruction at the hands of the Knicks…

  10. Carmelo Anthony leads Knicks to complete destruction of the Lakers

    Dec 13, 2012, 11:30 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v New York Knicks

    There were some who wondered whether the Lakers had hit rock bottom after losing in Cleveland to the 5-18 Cavaliers on Tuesday. The answer? Nope. Rock bottom officially came on Thursday in New York, where the Knicks absolutely destroyed L.A., leading by as many as 26 points on the way to a 116-107 victory, which…

  11. Magic get ultimate revenge on Dwight Howard, beating the Lakers and humiliating him in the process

    Dec 3, 2012, 12:47 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Glen Davis, J.J. Redick

    There really is nothing that could happen in one game for the Orlando Magic that could possibly make up for what Dwight Howard put them through a season ago, considering the way he forced his way out of town and left the franchise in a full-blown rebuilding situation. But for a single night, the Magic…

  12. Lakers reserve guard Devin Ebanks arrested for DUI

    Nov 9, 2012, 5:02 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Five

    Because the Lakers didn’t have enough things to deal with today… Lakers backup swingman Devin Ebanks was arrested early Friday morning (late Thursday night for you partiers) on suspicion of drunk driving, the Los Angeles Times reports. Ebanks, 23, was pulled over at 2:49 a.m. in the Hollywood area by California Highway Patrol officers and…

  13. Lakers round out roster, sign Devin Ebanks to deal

    Aug 13, 2012, 2:51 PM EDT

    Devin Ebanks Derek Fisher

    Lakers fans, we know who your human victory cigar is going to be. Devin Ebanks will sign his qualifying offer on Monday, rounding out the Lakers roster reports the Los Angeles Times. Ebanks spent last season with the Lakers and is coming back on a one-year deal that will make him an unrestricted free agent…

  14. Lakers need big changes — which means trading a big man

    May 22, 2012, 11:34 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Pau Gasol walks off the court after a season-ending loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder during Game 5 of the NBA western conference semi-finals in Oklahoma City

    It’s obvious the Lakers need changes. Big changes. The Oklahoma City Thunder are younger, deeper, more athletic and just flat out better. And they are not going anywhere for a few years. That’s not to mention up-and-coming contenders like the Clippers in the West that are passing where the Lakers seem stuck on the side…

  15. Lakers’ Bynum, Ebanks fined by league

    May 16, 2012, 2:32 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum, Andre Miller

    As if the Lakers didn’t have enough things going on… The Lakers Andrew Bynum and Devin Ebanks have been fined, the league office announced Wednesday. Bynum was fined $15,000 for not making himself available to the media following the Lakers practice on Tuesday. During the playoffs players have to make themselves available at designated times,…

  16. Lakers-Thunder Game 1: Lakers suffer a Thundertality

    May 15, 2012, 1:24 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game One

    This was a beating. A smackdown. A trouncing. A demolition. A boat race. A blowout. A “hit ‘em in the head with a shovel and drag their team to an unmarked grave,” “nail ‘em with a 2X4, watch them stagger around and then slam the door on them on the way out,” downright unavoidable-to-say butt…

  17. Orlando is in trouble now because it’s not good at drafting

    May 14, 2012, 6:38 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    More and more research is showing, if you want to build a sustainable winner in the NBA you need to do it on draft day. Look at the teams still playing. Miami had to draft Dwyane Wade, which made it possible to bring in Shaq to get them one title (and LeBron James doesn’t come…

  18. Lakers win in Denver to take 3-1 series lead over Nuggets, but it certainly wasn’t easy

    May 7, 2012, 1:44 AM EDT

    lakers-nuggets-game4

    It took until the game’s final few possessions, but ultimately, the outcome ended up being what we all expected. The Lakers took Game 4 from the Nuggets in Denver 92-88, but the heroes for L.A. weren’t necessarily the likely ones, and the game was anything but easy for the victors. The Lakers didn’t come close…

  19. Nuggets look to run way back into series with Lakers

    May 4, 2012, 3:38 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Andrew Bynum, Kenneth Faried

    The Lakers present nearly every team they face with a matchup dilemma — do you put your biggest players out there and try to match their front line size, or do you go small and try to run them out of the building. Denver is down 0-2 to the Los Angeles heading into a must-win…

  20. Bynum’s triple-double, NBA playoff record 10 blocked shots lead Lakers to Game 1 rout of Nuggets

    Apr 29, 2012, 8:02 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers

    Before the Lakers opened the playoffs at home against the Nuggets on Sunday, George Karl was asked at the beginning of his press conference if he thought his team had a chance. He responded by saying, “The first question and the arrogance of L.A. comes forth,” which was followed by laughs all around. It turned…

  21. Lakers get huge double overtime win over Thunder…. without Harden

    Apr 22, 2012, 9:47 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Derek Fisher, Russell Westbrook

    The Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder Sunday, 112-106. In five years, that’s all that will remain from this game, in searched box scores. Those are the facts. But what happened is such a bigger story. I’ve been sitting here struggling to find a way to accurately portray this game. Can you deny…

  22. Kobe Bryant out for the first time this season due to shin injury

    Apr 7, 2012, 10:21 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Kobe Bryant is known for his toughness, and has stubbornly played through all kinds of injuries throughout his career, and especially over the past couple of seasons. A torn wrist ligament couldn’t sideline him earlier this season, and in fact, nothing had — until Saturday night in Phoenix. Bryant was a late scratch for his…

  23. Report: Dwight Howard signed with Magic to avoid trade to Lakers

    Apr 6, 2012, 12:24 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Reports had surfaced long before the trade deadline that Dwight Howard had ruled out going to the Lakers. Maybe it was a meeting with Kobe Bryant that rubbed him the wrong way (Kobe allegedly told Howard he would be the third option on offense). Maybe it was him not wanting to follow in Shaquille O’Neal’s…

  24. Lakers send Devin Ebanks down to D-League

    Feb 15, 2012, 6:09 PM EDT

    Ebanks_Devin

    From the Lakers’ official Twitter feed: BREAKING: The Los Angeles Lakers have assigned forward Devin Ebanks to their @nbadleagueaffiliate, the Los Angeles @DFenders. This could mean nothing, but it could mean something significant for the Lakers as well: Gilbert Arenas-to-LA rumors have been swirling for about a week now, although the team has said it doesn’t have…

  25. Friday And-1 links, where it’s Jan Vesely time

    Jan 6, 2012, 11:12 AM EDT

    2011 NBA Draft

    Welcome to our morning look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Jan Vesely’s hip better and the Washington rookie is expected to make his NBA debut Friday vs. the Knicks. Maybe that will help, because the…
