Devin Ebanks will have a chance to showcase his skills during the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas next week.
He posted a screengrab to his Instagram account showing a forwarded email with a contract attached along with the following:
And once again it’s on! Big thanks do the D-League select team for giving me a chance to display my talents ! You can catch me in vegas the next two weeks puttin up some major buckets! #SummerLeague#TheGetBack #JustWaitOnIt
He split last season with the Texas Legends and Springfield Armor of the D-League, and earned a spot in the D-League All-Star game where he scored 27 points. On the season combined, he played in 45 games and averaged 23 points and nearly 8 rebounds per game.
Last year, the D-League select team went 4-1 during Summer League play. This summer, Ebanks and the Select team will play their first game on July 11 at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas against New Orléans at 10:30 ET. Many games can be seen on NBA TV or at NBA.com.
We reported at the end of May that Kevin Jones will play for the Indiana Pacers at the Orlando Summer League. They start the festivities in Orlando on Saturday, July 5th at 9 a.m. ET against Brooklyn. That game can be seen on NBA TV.
Both Ebanks and Jones hope that a strong performance over the next two weeks will bring them either a contract or an invite to training camp in the fall.
