Summer league wrapup

The Lakers went 0-5 during summer league play in Las Vegas, which did nothing to harm the chances of second-round draft picks Devin Ebanks and Derrick Caracter to make the roster in October. Ebanks averaged 15 points on 42.4 percent shooting with 3.6 rebounds and 1.4 assists in five starts. Caracter also made five starts, averaging 15.4 points on 59.3 percent shooting. He also averaged 8.6 rebounds and 1.8 assists. The Lakers lost to teams representing Detroit, Denver, New York, Sacramento and San Antonio. The teams are made up most of draft picks and free agents and a few veterans. Because they are second-round picks, Ebanks and Caracter don’t have guaranteed contracts awaiting them. In fact, even if the rookie forwards sign they will be paid less than $500,000 for next season, which could make them attractive additions to the salary-cap hampered Lakers.
