Brandon Ingram signs max extension with Pelicans

Brandon Ingram

Small forward Brandon Ingram has signed a max extension with the New Orleans Pelicans. The deal is worth a reported five years, $158 million.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported the news via Twitter on Tuesday.

Ingram was the second overall pick by the Los Angeles Lakers in 2016. He was subsequently dealt to the New Orleans Pelicans in the four player mega-trade that brought Anthony Davis to the Lakers in July of 2019.

Last season, Ingram was selected to the 2020 All Star team and was voted the NBA’s Most Improved Player, averaging 23.8 points per game. The Pelicans were invited into the NBA bubble, but did not reach the playoffs. Meanwhile, the player for which he was dealt, Anthony Davis, and the Los Angeles Lakers won the 2020 NBA Finals.

Ingram will begin the new season on his new deal on December 22.
