Ebanks signs; Caracter next?

Devin Ebanks, one of the Lakers’ two second-round draft picks, signed with the team today. He is the 13th player on the roster, which is the league minimum. His contract is not guaranteed, but if he makes the team he will earn the rookie minimum of $473,604 for 2010-11. If he sticks with the team in 2011-12, he will make a little more than $730,000. The Lakers probably will sign Derrick Caracter, their other second-round pick, at some point before training starts Sept. 25. Last season, the team went with 13 on their roster. Ebanks (West Virginia) and Caracter (Texas-El Paso) each played well for the Lakers’ summer league team last month, with Ebanks earning an invitation to training camp.
