Former Mountaineer Devin Ebanks Named to NBA D-League Select Team Roster

Posted: Updated:
MORGANTOWN - The NBA Summer League is split into two locations, being played in both Orlando, Florida and Las Vegas, Nevada. The Orlando league is well underway, while the Las Vegas circuit begins on Friday, July 11th.

In other words, the NBA Summer League is an audition period for several players that are hoping to make a splash back into the highest level of competition.

Former West Virginia standout Devin Ebanks split time during his first two seasons between the Los Angeles Lakers and a pair of D-League teams in the Bakersfield Jam and Los Angeles D-Fenders. But he ultimately found himself back in the NBA Developmental League during his third year after the Lakers traded his rights to the Dallas Mavericks. Dallas ended up cutting Ebanks, resulting in his signing with the Texas Legends, another NBA D-League franchise.

The Legends traded his rights to the Springfield Armor in February 2014, where he was named to the 2014 NBADL All-Star Game.

All of that has led Ebanks to the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas, where he will suit up for the NBA D-League Select Team, going up against other NBA teams' recent draft picks and other late additions.

Ebanks joins his former teammate at West Virginia, Kevin Jones, as the only other Mountaineer men's basketball player to be playing in the 2014 NBA Summer League.

Below is the roster in which Ebanks will be featured during the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas:
