    His ceiling seems a long way away?! LoL he’s 22 years old!! What do you not get about that? I can go to player after player who are stars and super stars that simply weren’t as good as Ingram or even close at age 20-21..

    Not only has he not played basketball he wasn’t able to do anything more the. A slow walk for months! He said he basically had to sit on a couch. Wasn’t able to work on any shooting form since that’s where the artery was. It’s going to take him time before the consistency come back. My time table for him is how he plays after the all star break where his conditioning along with the shooting touch should be back. Until then we will see some great games followed by some duds. His overall skill set should always give us a productive player on the floor. He can create for others as a point forward and make some great hockey assists while being a great defender. We got a good one.

That means we have a maximum of about 4 months (November, December, January, beginning of Feb) to make the choice over whether to keep him or not. We don't have that long for Gentry to sort him out, and that's a worry.
    LoL!! Ingram’s time scale had absolutely nothing to do with why you didn’t want Ingram. I literally have near everything you trashed him for saved and none of it was because he would need to be extended. The least on your mind was extension because of how trash you said he was. If he gets paid by us then I trust Griffin/Langdon to know a little more then your bias opinion.

    If he is willing to adapt he is undoubtedly a positive asset to this team. If not... time to go shopping!

    His “attitude” has always been way over blown. He acts exactly like Kawhi Leonard and I don’t see this being an issue at all. He’s not an extremely emotional player when things are good and bad which is something I like. He is a gym rat who spends all of his time in the gym working on his craft and just wants to be the best. Here he won’t have to worry about the LA spotlight being on him and following his every move 24/7. If you can point to something he has done I would like to know but everything I know about Ingram he is nothing but a team player who is as hard a worker as there is.
