Lakers send Devin Ebanks down to D-League

From the Lakers’ official Twitter feed:

BREAKING: The Los Angeles Lakers have assigned forward Devin Ebanks to their @nbadleagueaffiliate, the Los Angeles @DFenders.

This could mean nothing, but it could mean something significant for the Lakers as well: Gilbert Arenas-to-LA rumors have been swirling for about a week now, although the team has said it doesn’t have “serious interest” in the former Wizards standout. More recently, and perhaps more realistically, the Lakers have been in talks with J.R. Smith, who has been in China all season after spending last season with the Denver Nuggets.

The 22-year old Ebanks has appeared in 12 games for the Lakers this season, and has averaged 2.7 points in 12.6 minutes per game.
