As you may have noticed, there are two new sub-forums in this forum -- Sourced Rumors and Trade and Signing Ideas.
All threads should go in one of these two places. And here is how you will determine where to post (this will also help you know where to look for particular threads):
All topics created in the Sourced Rumors forum should have a source (hence the name of the forum). State where you heard/saw the rumor and a link if applicable. Good sources would be an online article or a respectable blog by a member of the media. Radio reports or summaries from TV reports (ex. Bucher on ESPN News) are also accepted, but the staff will have a quicker trigger finger with regards to these two, especially if they are being posted by a member who's credibility is questionable or if no one else heard/saw the report. This is due to the fact that people often fabricate reports for various reasons. Only sources which directly mention the Lakers or a Lakers player should be reported in the Sourced Rumors sub-forum.
Trade and Signing Ideas: in short, this is where everything else goes. Suggestions of who the Lakers should sign or trade for. Reports of other teams' players being on the trade block. To differentiate these from general ideas/suggestions, please continue to use list the source in the title, just as we did with the sourced rumors prior to the creation of the sub-forum (ex. ESPN: Nuggets looking to move Melo). Such reports would not go in the Sourced Rumors forum because they do not directly relate to the Lakers and any discussion that the rumor would spawn would be speculation and trade suggestions. Any "inside" rumors from family, friends, or other sites should be posted in the Ideas forum. Once it is supported by a sourced member of the media, it will be moved to the Sourced Rumors forum.
If you are still uncertain of where to post your topic, post it in the parent forum, Lakers Trade Rumors, and it will be redirected by a staff member.
The Los Angeles Lakers didn't pick in the first round of the NBA Draft but General Manager Mitch Kupchak had two second-round selections to work with. At 43, the Lakers chose small forward Devin Ebanks and at 58 they added power forward Derrick Caracter.
Ebanks, at 6'9", 215 pounds, is a rangy, perimeter defender who can slash and cut. Historically he's a poor three-point shooter but in the early games of the Las Vegas Summer League, Devin has shown an improved stroke.
With an uncanny resemblance to former Laker Trevor Ariza, Ebanks may get the opportunity to play a similar role off the bench for the Lakers.
