The Lakers President of Basketball Operations, Magic Johnson, said Brandon Ingram is their most untouchable player.
How’s that for clarity? It is rare to hear such candor from anyone in an NBA front office but Magic is making it clear who he sees as the franchise player on the current roster. Ingram had an up and down rookie season but did show some promise during the 2nd half of the season for fantasy owners. A year on an NBA roster focused on strength and conditioning can do wonders for young players and at age 19 the potential is limitless. Treat Ingram as a late round sleeper in next year’s fantasy drafts with potential for more once the Lakers roster gains some clarity this summer.
