Lakers' Devin Ebanks arrested on suspicion of DUI

Christopher Hanewinckel-US PRESSWIRE

As if the firing of Mike Brown wasn't already enough, L.A.'s Devin Ebanks got arrested early Friday morning to add to the team's aura of negativity.

Lakers forward Devin Ebanks was arrested on suspicion of DUI early Friday morning in Los Angeles, according to Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles Times.

Ebanks was reportedly pulled over in the Hollywood area by highway patrol car a little before 3:00 a.m. PT. The Lakers told the L.A. Times that they're aware of the situation after he posted $5,000 bail, but the team has yet to hand out any sort of punishment so far.

It's possible that Ebanks will be cut at this point, as he's only been averaging 2.5 points and 2.0 rebounds a game on 23.1% shooting in 10.3 minutes per contest.

Mark Travis of Silver Screen and Roll pointed out that Delonte West is a possible free agent replacement. While he's a bit of a headcase too, he could be a more productive replacement, as he averaged 9.6 points, 3.2 assists and 2.3 rebounds in 24.1 minutes per game for the Mavericks last season.

This doubled with the Mike Brown firing news is sure to make for some interesting postgame interviews after the Lakers take on the Warriors Friday evening.
