Lakers free agency: Devin Ebanks, Chris Duhon not returning

While two Lakers may be on their way back, Devin Ebanks and Chris Duhon's time with the Lakers has come to an end.

The Los Angeles Lakers are shifting gears as they prepare for free agency on July 1 and have decided to move on from both Devin Ebanks and Chris Duhon, according to Kevin Ding of the Orange County Register.

Duhon's $3.9 million contract for 2013-2014 was non-guaranteed and was likely bought out for about one-third of the cost. With Steve Nash and Steve Blake both signed for 2013-2014, and Darius Morris likely a cheap option to bring back as a free agent, Duhon was the odd man out after being tied to Dwight Howard in a trade that sent them both to Los Angeles.

The Latest on Dwight: Howard "unlikely" to re-sign

Ebanks was the 43rd pick in the 2010 NBA Draft. Despite an injury ravaged season he played in only 19 games for the Lakers last season. He averaged 3.4 points on 32 percent shooting (27 percent from beyond the arc) and 2.2 rebounds per game.

This comes on the heels of news that the Lakers have exercised the contract option on Jodie Meeks to bring him back a second year, and made a qualifying offer to Robert Sacre.
