Pelicans' Brandon Ingram: Traded to New Orleans

The Lakers traded Ingram (shoulder) to the Pelicans on Saturday as part of a package of players and picks in a deal that sent Anthony Davis to Los Angeles, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Along with Ingram, the Lakers dealt away Josh Hart (knee), Lonzo Ball, the fourth overall pick in next week's draft and two additional future draft picks. Ingram, who averaged 18.3 points, 5.1 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 52 games last year, is expected to be ready for the start of the 2019-20 campaign after requiring season-ending thoracic outlet decompression surgery on his right arm in mid-March. While New Orleans could augment its roster in a significant way in the next few months, Ingram should be in line to serve as one of the Pelicans' primary scoring options.
