Andre Ingram, a 32-year old guard who has spent 10 years in the NBA G League (formerly the D League), has finally got the call up to the NBA. The Los Angeles Lakers have officially announced the signing of Ingram for the rest of the season, which includes a nationally televised home game against the Houston Rockets tonight and a “road game” against the Clippers to wrap up the season on Wednesday.
Since graduating from America University in 2007, Ingram has spent his entire career in the G League, including four seasons with the now-defunct Utah Flash, five seasons with the Los Angeles D-Fenders, and a season with the South Bay Lakers, who he played for this year. He also briefly played in Australia in 2016 before returning to the G League, according to NBA.com.
Ingram averaged 9.1 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 47 games for the South Bay Lakers this season. He ranks as the G League’s all-time leader in three-pointers made (713), and has career G League averages of 10.2 points (.464 FG%, .461 3P%), 3.1 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 384 games, according to NBA.com.
