Lakers Sign Draft Pick Devin Ebanks Today; Derrick Caracter Expected To Sign Friday

The Los Angeles Lakers are seemingly planning to put the finishing touches of their squad together by the end of the week by signing their pair of second round picks.

First, the Lakers announced on Thursday the signing of forward Devin Ebanks, the first of two second-round selections in the draft.

Ebanks signed a non-guaranteed deal for the rookie minimum worth $473,604 if he makes the team, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The Lakers are expected to sign their other second round pick Friday.

Derrick Caracter, a 6-9 big man selected No. 58 out of the University of Texas El Paso, has also agreed to terms with the team. Caracter is flying out to Los Angeles on Thursday to officially sign with the team Friday, according to Caracter's agent, Happy Walters.

Walters said Caracter's deal is guaranteed at the rookie minimum for 2010-11 with a team option in place worth approximately $788,000 for the following season.

Both players played well in the NBA Summer League, but it will be interesting to see what type of role their able to carve out for themselves on the Lakers' veteran-laden roster.
