DALLAS — Former West Virginia forward Devin Ebanks, currently attempting to make the Dallas Mavericks roster, was dealt a two-game suspension by the NBA on Monday stemming from his DUI arrest in Hollywood back in November 2012.
Ebanks recently pleaded no contest to the charge, clearing the way for the league’s disciplinary protocol. Regardless of what team he ends up with, he must sit out the first two regular-season games.
After being drafted by the Lakers in 2010 and spending three seasons in Los Angeles, Ebanks signed what is believed to be a non-guaranteed contract worth $884,293 with the Mavericks. The 23-year-old has averaged 3.6 points and 1.9 rebounds in 63 regular-season games. His playoff totals include six starts in nine appearances, averaging 4.1 points and 2.2 rebounds.
In 69 games covering two seasons at WVU, Ebanks averaged 11.2 points, 7.9 rebounds and 2.6 assists. He was an integral part of the Mountaineers’ run to the 2010 Final Four.
