Well one restricted Free Agent that won't be returning is Devin Ebanks
Player: Devin Ebanks
How he performed: Averaged 3.4 points on 32.9 percent shooting and 2.2 rebounds through 10.4 minutes in 19 regular-season games.
The Skinny: In his first two seasons with the Lakers, he cemented himself with a reputation as an unassuming hard worker that could become a solid role player. That went to waste his third season. First he was arrested on suspicion of DUI in early November the night before the Lakers fired Mike Brown. Ebanks immediately fell out of the rotation. Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni gave him a chance in mid-December. But Ebanks shot only 9 of 25 during a three-game stretch and appeared noticeably out of shape, earning himself a permanent spot on the bench. Meanwhile, he hardly appeared engaged in practice and pre-game warmups.
His future: Ebanks can kiss his $1.3 million qualifying offer and his time with the Lakers goodbye. The Lakers may have saw promise in his first two years with the Lakers. But Ebanks squandered that good will by completely checking out last year.
Dang...dude really screwed himself...
if he had Morris' work ethic he may have been able to take advantage when he finally got minutes, but dude checked out and allowed himself to get out of shape.... shame really, he had potential too but its a shame he suddenly felt privileged and let it go to his head cause Brown played him, over Meeks. D'antoni sits him and he just "stops working". Shame, he could have been a very good backup. But you can't teach drive.
