  • The Los Angeles Lakers signed 32-year-old guard Andre Ingram for the remainder of the regular season.
  • Ingram has spent ten years in the G League and has never played in the NBA.
  • The Lakers surprised Ingram by bringing him to his exit interview for the G League and announcing they were signing him.


The Los Angeles Lakers helped facilitate a feel-good story on Monday by calling up Andre Ingram from the G League to play the remaining two games of the regular season.

Ingram is a 32-year-old guard who has spent ten years in the G League, having never made it into the NBA. He's the all-time leader in three-pointers made in the developmental league.

The Lakers made the story even better when they filmed the process and showed that Ingram was heading to his exit interview with the South Bay Lakers when they surprised him by bringing in Lakers president Magic Johnson and GM Rob Pelinka to tell Ingram they were signing him.
