The Lake Show have assigned talented, rookie Devin Ebanks to the Bakersfield Jam of the NBA Development League. The team serves the Lakers and affiliate Clippers as the Los Angeles D-Fenders are inactive for this season. The 43rd pick, Ebanks has drawn comparisons to former Laker number 3, Trevor Ariza for his athletic and defensive talents. Still however, the swingman who is averaging 2.9 points and 1.5 rebounds in 6.4 minutes will look to develop more as he makes his NBDL league debut against the New Mexico Thunderbirds tomorrow night. Expect him to impress...a lot. TIM DAVID HARVEY.
