2010 NBA Draft Grades: Los Angeles Lakers Neutral With Ebanks & Caracter

Could the rich get richer? The Lakers certainly hoped so.

Since many Los Angeles fans were still celebrating the Lakers' 16th NBA Championship, it’s likely they missed the 2010 NBA Draft because going to the club seems to be more fun than waiting until the 43rd pick to see their team make a pick.

Think again, Ron Artest and his gajillion family members!

The purple and gold appear to have their hardest decisions still in front of them, but fans should take a look at the value Los Angeles was able to get with two late second rounders:

West Virginia’s Devin Ebanks (43rd) and UTEP’s Derrick Caracter (58th)

It’s OK, most of America yawned originally as well.

But let’s get to know these two youngsters. While they aren’t guaranteed an opportunity to play with Kobe and Co., the Lakers have given many second round selections contracts in the past (Walton, Turiaf, Yue, etc.), so they could be sitting on the bench next year.

Emphasis on bench. Jackson hates rookies.
