The NBA announced on Monday that Devin Ebanks of the Dallas Mavericks has been suspended for two games without pay after pleading no-contest to DUI charges from an incident which took place in November 2012.

The suspension will begin at the start of the 2013 – ’14 NBA season, but when Ebanks is back on a final roster. The 23-year-old signed a non-guaranteed contract with the Mavs this summer but is not expected to make the team.

The arrest occurred on November 9, 2012 while Ebanks was a member of the Los Angeles Lakers. He was pulled over at 2:49 a.m. for committing a traffic violation and was released later that morning after posting $5,000 bail.

After 63 games in three seasons with the Lakers, the 6′ 9″ forward¬†averaged 3.6 points and 1.9 rebounds.

New Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd will also be serving a two-game suspension following his own DUI arrest.
