July 2, 2010 | 10:30 am

You've learned what to expect from West Virginia sophomore forward Devin Ebanks in Vegas Summer League after the Lakers selected him with the 43rd pick. Now it's time to see what's in store for Texas-El Paso junior forward Derrick Caracter, whom the Lakers picked 58th overall.

The El Paso Times' Bill Knight provides those answers, having covered Caracter's college career with the Miners. He credits Caracter's rebounding skills, but mentions that his conditioning needs to improve. Knight highlights Caracter's attitude problem at Louisville, but details how he matured at UTEP. He explains the difficulty Caracter has in cracking a spot in the Lakers' lineup, but he ultimately believes Caracter will make the team. You can follow more of Knight's work at The El Paso Times' website as well as on Twitter.
