Andre Ingram made his debut in the NBA as a 32-year-old rookie last year. Now, the 6-foot-3 guard will be back for more on a 10-day contract with the L.A. Lakers, head coach Luke Walton announced today.
Ingram will suit up in a Lakers jersey on Tuesday in a game against Chicago Bulls.
The athlete plays on the G League’s South Bay Lakers — a minor league team affiliate where he’s spent more than 10 years before making his pro debut.
On April 10 last year, he played as a pro against the Houston Rockets, scoring 19 points on 6-of-8 shooting, including hitting four of five shots from 3-point range. For the game, he wore Under Armour Curry 3 sneakers.
On the official L.A. Lakers Instagram page, fans left comments supporting Ingram’s news. “Bro Andre Ingram is an amazing player he will help our team a lot @lakers give him a 1 yr contract @lakers” wrote a user.
