Three former West Virginia men’s basketball players are playing in either the NBA or the NBA’s Developmental League.

Here is a quick look at how each of them has fared up to this point in the season.

Devin Ebanks – Los Angeles Lakers
Ebanks, who is in his third season with the Lakers, is averaging 3.7 points per game this season to go along with 2.2 rebounds per game.

Ebanks has played in 17 games, including three starts.

Since Jan. 11, Ebanks has played in one game, in which he played five minutes, scored five points and pulled down three rebounds.

Kevin Jones – Cleveland Cavaliers
The first-year pro is currently averaging two points and 1.9 rebounds per game.

After playing a season-high 22 minutes against Atlanta on Jan. 9, Jones has played in just six games since.

In a Feb. 1 loss to the Pistons, Jones played 21 minutes, scored four points and grabbed nine rebounds.

Alex Ruoff – Canton Charge
Ruoff played 24 games for the Canton Charge, including one start, before being waived on Feb. 6.

During that time, he averaged 7.3 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game.

His season high of 17 points came against the Santa Cruz Warriors on Jan. 10. On Dec. 26, Ruoff had a double-double (10 points, 11 rebounds) against the Austin Toros.
