Ebanks, 24, left the Mountaineers after his sophomore year and was a second-round pick in the 2010 NBA Draft. He played 63 games, including 15 starts, during his three seasons with the Lakers and averaged 3.6 points and 1.9 rebounds.
Los Angeles, however, didn't offer him an opportunity to remain a Laker, so he moved to Dallas during the preseason. After being cut there, he joined the Legends. His great start has already led to interest from several NBA teams.
"I spoke to a lot of teams in the [D-League] Showcase and they all had positive things to say," Ebanks said. "So right now I'm just waiting on a call to see if I can help a team in the NBA."
The ex-Mountaineer has shown he can score, rebound and more.
"I'm happy we got him here," Najera said. "He brings a lot of scoring and athleticism. He developed his basketball IQ with the Lakers. I think that's the biggest surprise I've seen. His basketball IQ is actually really, really good."
