After the 76ers took Ben Simmons with the No. 1 overall pick in last June’s draft, it was an easy decision for the Lakers to select Ingram, a 6-foot-9 swingman who some talent evaluators actually preferred in the pre-draft process due to his superhuman length (7-foot-3 wingspan) and smooth outside shot. The rebuilding Lakers had the luxury of easing Ingram into NBA life by bringing him off the bench behind veteran Luol Deng initially, but when the team was quickly removed from playoff consideration, coach Luke Walton turned the rookie loose. While Ingram occasionally demonstrated flashes of excellence, on the whole, he was about as raw as one would expect a 19-year-old to be. Ingram averaged 9.4 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 28.8 minutes per game in 79 appearances and shot poorly from the field (40.2 percent), 3-point range (29.4 percent) and charity stripe (62.1 percent). It was a far cry from the efficiency he demonstrated during his sole season at Duke, and suggests that the NBA learning curve may be steeper than expected for Ingram, in spite of his impressive physical tools. If there’s a positive takeaway, it’s that Ingram improved as the season wore on, turning in 13.2 points (on 47.5 percent shooting) after the All-Star break. With the benefit of another NBA training camp and a full offseason to add strength to his lithe frame, Ingram should build on his strong second half and hold down a 30-plus-minute role throughout 2017-18 as the Lakers’ projected starting small forward. A full-on breakout may not be in the cards for Ingram, but incremental improvements in most statistical categories can probably be expected. That may be enough for Ingram to justify his price in Fantasy drafts and auctions.

  2. Brandon Ingram 2016–17 Preseason Outlook
    Expectations are sky high for Ingram, the No. 2 overall pick in the draft, who will be tasked with leading a rebuild of one of the league’s proudest franchises. In the long term, Ingram projects as a devastating wing scorer, pairing prototypical athleticism and length with above-average ball-handling skills for a 6-foot-9 player. How ready he’ll be to contribute as a rookie, however, remains to be seen. The biggest question mark with Ingram has always been his rail-thin, 190-pound frame and how it will hold up to the rigors of the NBA. While there’s no question he’ll need to add weight as his career progresses, Ingram, at age 19, is comfortable operating on the perimeter off the dribble and crafty enough around the rim to ease any major concerns. He’ll likely struggle with shooting efficiency, as most rookies do, but should still provide adequate scoring and rebounding numbers. Ingram showed flashes of playmaking ability off the dribble during his lone season at Duke, but that area of his game still needs work, so he’s unlikely to be a strong source of assists as a rookie.
