This will be the 32-year-old’s first stint with an NBA team.

In his first year back with South Bay, Ingram averaged 9.1 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 47 games and shot a league-high 47.5 percent from behind the arc. Ingram is the G League’s all-time leader in made three-pointers with 713 made three-pointers and naturally won the G League (then D-League) 3-point contest in 2016.
Ingram is expected to be with the Lakers when they take on the Houston Rockets Tuesday at STAPLES Center. The Lakers only have two games remaining on the schedule.
