Ebanks Gets Contract Offer From Lakers


Former West Virginia University basketball star Devin Ebanks is trying to figure out how his NBA career will continue. The Los Angeles Lakers appear to be interested in seeing him continue that career in their uniform.

Ebanks was a second round draft pick by the Lakers in 2010 and just completed his second year with the franchise. Ebanks' contract expired so he is set to become a free agent. He was going to be an unrestricted free agent until the Lakers decided to extend him a qualifying offer, which makes Ebanks a restricted free agent. Details of the offer have not been disclosed.

The difference between a restricted and unrestricted free agent is big in that the Lakers will be able to match any offer Ebanks receives elsewhere.

The Lakers saw a lot of value in Ebanks through his versatility. He started for Kobe Bryant when he was injured and did the same in the first round of the playoffs while Metta World Peace served a suspension.

Ebanks averaged four points and two rebounds in 16.5 minutes per game last season.

The NBA's free agency period begins Saturday at 9 pm.
