Lakers Rumors: Multiple Teams Express Interest in Devin Ebanks

As NBA free agency kicks into high gear, the Los Angeles Lakers have been mentioned in all sorts of different scenarios in terms of improving their squad with trades and or free agent signings. With all the recent talk of blockbuster deals to send Dwight Howard to Los Angeles or possibly even Steve Nash via sign-and-trade, the Lakers actually signing their own free agents like Ramon Sessions and Devin Ebanks hasn’t been high on the team’s list of priorities.

One free agent on the Lakers that is surprisingly getting a lot of interest in free agency is Devin Ebanks, according to Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld.com:

“Restricted free agent Devin Ebanks has drawn interest from a number of teams including the Orlando Magic, Oklahoma City Thunder, Atlanta Hawks, Brooklyn Nets and Philadelphia 76ers, according to sources close to the situation. The Los Angeles Lakers extended a qualifying offer to Ebanks last week, which means they can match any offer sheet that the 22-year-old signs.”

Ebanks and the Lakers have expressed mutual interest in getting a deal done, but with all the teams willing to make a push for the 22-year-old small forward, it’s uncertain if Los Angeles would match a sizable offer.

Other notable small forwards that the Lakers are said to be interested in are Rashard Lewis, Michael Beasley, Grant Hill and Brandon Rush, all of which would be an upgrade over Ebanks in many different areas.
