Kevin Durant spoke highly of Brandon Ingram during a recent interview at Team USA’s training camp.
Durant stated that Ingram reminded him of himself at the rookie stage of his career and stated that he’s even further along than he was. This is high praise from the former MVP but we’ll believe it when we see the numbers. Luol Deng’s recent signing with the Lakers may see Ingram coming off the bench or at the very least conceding shots in the early portion of the season. Deng’s role may grow to a mentoring one as the season plays on but the Lakers invested a lot of money into Deng so they might as well play him.
