Springfield Armor trade for Devin Ebanks, D-League's top forward

Christopher Hanewinckel-US PRESSWIRE

Marc J. Spears reports that the Springfield Armor are part of a three-team deal that will bring the D-League's top forward to the Nets affiliate.  Devin Ebanks, a three-year Laker vet, is one of six players involved in the deal, which also included draft picks.

He is currently list as the sixth best prospect in the D-League, where he's averaging 24.1 points and 8.9 rebounds, shooting 44.7 percent overall and 30.8 from downtown.

Ebanks, 24, was a second round pick of the Lakers in the 2010 draft and played 63 games --including 15 starts-- in three years for L.A., averaging four points a game. He had tours with the L.A. Defenders and Bakersfield Jam of the D-League before joining the Texas Legends this fall.  He was cut by Mavericks following training camp.

A Brooklyn native, Ebanks played at Bishop Loughlin High School, just a few blocks from Barclays Center.

Ebanks joins Darius Johnson-Odom and Adonis Thomas as the Armor's top NBA candidates for a call-up but as NetsDaily's Robert Windrem pointed out in an interview on CBS Radio in Springfield before the trade was reported, it's going to be very expensive for the Nets to call any of them up.
