Ebanks, a second year player out of West Virginia, has appeared in 12 games (4 starts) with the Lakers this season, averaging 2.7 points, 2.0 rebounds and 0.5 assists in 12.6 minutes. Selected by the Lakers in the second round (43rd overall) of the 2010 NBA Draft, Ebanks appeared in 20 games last season, averaging 3.1 points and 1.4 rebounds in 5.9 minutes. The D-League assignment is the second of Ebanks career, having previously been assigned to the Bakersfield Jam last season.
