Devin Ebanks, who is currently playing for the Texas Legends, has a meeting lined up with the Sixers at the D-League Showcase in Reno, reports Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports (via Twitter). According to Ken Berger of CBSSports.com (via Twitter), Ebanks looks like the early favorite to be the first call-up from the Reno event.
Ebanks, 24, spent three seasons with the Lakers before signing with the Mavericks this offseason. The 6’9″ swingman was released by Dallas prior to the regular season, but has excelled for the Mavs’ D-League affiliate in 15 games so far, averaging 24.5 PPG and 9.7 RPG.
If the Sixers intend to sign Ebanks, the team will have to open up a roster spot first. With today’s contract guarantee deadline looming, Philadelphia is carrying a full 15-man roster, but could waive one of five non-guaranteed contracts in order to create space. Still, there’s no indication yet that the team’s interest in Ebanks extends beyond the reported meeting.
