With all the excitement surrounding the recent trade of Dwight Howard to the Los Angeles Lakers, fans almost forgot about the up-and-coming small forward that was still looking to sign his contract with the club to continue his career with the team.
Devin Ebanks will finally sign his $1.05 million qualifying offer after he takes his physical on Monday, according to the Los Angeles Times.
"[Ebanks] feels they know him now and what he's capable of and can contribute," agent David Bauman told the Los Angeles Times. "He's going to be given a chance to get a role on the team."
The Lakers are lining up to be two-deep at every position with Ebanks providing small forward depth behind Metta World Peace. Recently signed Antawn Jamison can also spend time at that position as well as Kobe Bryant in small lineups so that position is in good hands.
