Lakers offseason news: Brian Shaw attends Brandon Ingram's pre-draft workout

Looks like Los Angeles has brought in their first new assistant.

When we last received an update on whether or not Brian Shaw would be joining new Los Angeles Lakers head coach Luke Walton's assistant coaching staff, Shaw said  he and the team were "just finalizing the last details of the contract."

It would appear that the two sides are either very close or have agreed to terms, because Shaw attended the team's pre-draft workout of Duke forward Brandon Ingram, according to Brad Turner of the L.A. Times. While we don't know exactly what Shaw did there, he was reportedly intended to be a "proxy" for Walton at the team's workouts while the latter finishes the season with the Golden State Warriors.

We also don't know who is going to round out the rest of Walton's staff, but there should be more news soon with the Warriors' season set to wrap up within the next week one way or another. Stay tuned to Silver Screen and Roll for the latest updates.
