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.
