The forward Devance attended the University of Texas, El Paso between 2001 and 2004. He entered the PBA in 2007 as the first overall pick by then-expansion team Welcoat. Though he had minutes, Devance was not really able to showcase his talent, playing center under coach Caloy Garcia. He wore number 53 with the Dragons.

After playing one season with the Welcoat Dragons, he was then traded to the Alaska Aces for Sol Mercado. He is a feared outside scorer and a serious threat in the low post, a testament to his offensive capabilities.

He is touted as the next most important player and the cornerstone of the Aces’ frontline until the unthinkable happened — Devance and the Aces had to part ways only after three seasons after Devance was shipped to the Air21 Express in exchange for the talented but underachieving forward Jay-R Reyes.

On his years as an Ace, he was able to reach three finals appearances during the 2008-09 and 2009-10 seasons though he only had a championship during the 2010 Fiesta Conference.

After playing three seasons in the Alaska Aces, Alaska was forced to let go of Devance after the talented Fil-Am forward begged off. Sources said Devance wanted out of Alaska, hoping to get better compensation somewhere else even though Alaska already offered Devance the maximum pay of P350,000 per month. Despite this, Alaska had no choice, so they traded him to Air21 Express for their big man Jay-R Reyes.

After a week, Devance was quickly traded to the B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados in exchange for Niño Canaleta and Jondan Salvador. Devance was never able to play a game for the Express.

Devance was included in the List of Candidates for the 2010-11 PBA Most Valuable Player Candidates List and led the Statistical Points Average with 31.89 points. In the end of the 2010-11 season, Devance was included in the 2nd Mythical Team along with his teammate James Yap, Jay Washington, Jayson Castro, and Ali Peek. Devance was a key piece in San Mig Coffee's Grand Slam season in the 2013-14 season, averaging 9.4 points per game and 4.3 rebounds per game. Devance signed a 2-year extension deal with the Purefoods Star Hotshots on August 2014.

Barangay Ginebra

In September 28, 2015, Devance was traded to the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel in a series of trades that involved four teams namely: Barangay Ginebra, Star, Barako Bull Energy, and GlobalPort Batang Pier. He again reunited with his former coach at Alaska and Star, Tim Cone.
