Default Mav sign Ndubi Ebi!!

Quote:
DALLAS (Ticker) - Ndubi Ebi was a bust with the Minnesota Timberwolves. He hopes to take advantage of a second chance.

The Dallas Mavericks on Thursday signed Ebi, a first-round pick of the Timberwolves in 2003.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The 6-9 Ebi played in just 19 games in two seasons with Minnesota before being waived last October. He had career averages of 2.1 points and 1.0 rebound in 4.5 minutes.

Ebi played with the Fort Worth Flyers of the D-League last season and averaged 11.4 points, 6.9 rebounds and 2.3 blocks in 16 games.

The Mavericks on Thursday also signed guards Darius Washington and Jose Barea and forward Pat Carroll.

Washington applied for the NBA draft after his sophomore season at Memphis, but was not selected. He played for the Mavericks' summer league team and averaged 10.4 points and 2.4 assists.

Barea also went undrafted in June after playing four years at Northeastern. He ranked 18th in the nation in scoring (21.0) and second in assists (8.3) last season. Barea averaged 12.0 points and 6.7 assists for the Mavs' summer league team.

Carroll played for the Houston Rockets' summer league team and averaged 16.4 points.


I like Ebi! i remember him in lebron HS allstar game where he showed SOME nice D on lebron with good quickness and shot blocking ability.

I really hope he busts into the lineup somehow and shows what he can do!

So are the 4 players that are playing for the 15th spot going to get cut before the preseason. I hope they sign Ebi, he has the most potential out of the 4, and could be a possible backup for dirk

I would be very surprised if any are cut before getting some preseason action. They'd really have to be stinking it up in camp. I think most will be around till the final cut and given every chance. If if looks for sure like one isn't going to make it, they may cut him early to give him a chance to catch on with another team or head overseas. In my opinion the least likely to make it will be Carroll. He seems to be a shooter only. If they find out he can't get off his shot against NBA competition, they will cut bait on him first.

Barring injuries to Croshere, Benga and Pops...probably not. Though he could pass Pops in training camp.

I could see him getting time at SF if and when Howard/George/Stackhouse get hurt.

He's gonna have to show a lot during TC and the Pre-season to make up for all the sucking he's done in his career.

I like the guy, but I don't think he will make it in the NBA.

And Dallas is a pretty deep team .
