Los Angeles Lakers draft Devin Ebanks and Derrick Caracter

With the 43rd overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft the Lakers selected West Virginia forward Devin Ebanks and with the 58th overall pick they selected Derrick Caracter a forward from Texas El Paso.

Ebanks is a strong defender with a decent mid range jump shot, but he made only 10 percent of his 3 point attempts last season.  Ebanks’ uncle grew up with Lamar Odom and he currently live just a few minutes away from Ron Artest and Lamar Odom. The three had become friends over the draft process, which likely contributed to the Lakers drafting him.
