The Los Angeles Lakers are expecting big things from the Brandon Ingram going into his third year. Here are three goals for Ingram entering the 2018-19 season.
Brandon Ingram took a big leap in his sophomore campaign with the Los Angeles Lakers, nearly doubling his scoring and assist average from his rookie season. While the jump from year one to year two was a welcoming sign for the Lakers, Ingram is expected to take his game to a whole new level in 2018-19.
Now, surrounded by veteran leaders, blossoming talent and arguably the best player on the planet in LeBron James, Ingram will no longer carry the burden of being the Lakers’ go-to option. While James will command most of the attention on the offensive end, Ingram will have a golden opportunity to put up points as the team’s second option.
The lengthy wing had a strong preseason, averaging 17.4 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 25.7 minutes per game.
While preseason doesn’t count in the record books, it does serve as a strong indicator of what’s to come. If Ingram carries his balanced preseason performance into the regular season, he should be able to accomplish the following goals in the 2018-19 campaign.
