Watch Lakers’ prospect, Brandon Ingram splash home threes in a video via Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, The Vertical
Normally Adrian Wojnarowski drops breaking news, aka Woj Bombs, via his preferred weapon of choice, Twitter but this time around the NBA insider took to Instagram to bring fans video of Lakers’ prospect, Brandon Ingram shooting threes in a short workout clip.
By now, fans who follow the game are familiar with Ingram’s ability to stroke the long ball and this video shows exactly that, though it also shows what many assume will be his biggest flaw come next season: his slender 6’10, sub 200 pound frame.
Hitting six of eight threes from distance in a shooting drill that involved no defense whatsoever may not seem impressive to some, but the Lakers will take any help they can get from that area on the floor, as the team collectively shot just under 32 percent for the year from distance.

In regards to the Lakers’ roster for next season, there is currently a lot of uncertainty in terms of who is coming and who is going, but a predicted line up of D’Angelo Russell, Jordan Clarkson, Brandon Ingram, Julius Randle and perhaps, Tarik Black, would be a young, athletic, explosive lineup of the future.
Though fans are holding onto pipe dreams of Kevin Durant to the Lakers, recent rumors seem to suggest that Hassan Whiteside may actually be a more obtainable target. Substitute Whiteside for Black and you have a defensive juggernaut just waiting to happen.
As mentioned before, this summer will prove vital to the Lakers’ chances at a complete rebuild and every signing or lack thereof will be crucial. That said, the first piece of the puzzle will be added June 23 when the Lakers select second overall in the upcoming NBA Draft.
