Brandon Ingram discusses Lakers workout

The Los Angeles Lakers, owners of the second overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, worked out a prospect that more than likely will be a major part of the team’s future moving forward on Thursday afternoon. And that prospect was Duke product Brandon Ingram.

Though many consider Ingram to be the top prospect in the draft, reports have widely suggested the Sixers are leaning towards selecting LSU’s Ben Simmons over Ingram with the first pick, allowing Ingram to fall into the Lakers’ lap.

Ingram, a 6-foot-9, 195 pound small forward, talked to the media afterwards, and here were some of the notable quotes that transpired during the media session. First, Ingram said he wants to gain at least 10-15 pounds this summer, which is an easy goal to understand, because of how rail-thin he is. Gaining weight will not only allow him to have an easier time making an instant impact in the league , but it’ll also allow him to play multiple positions — especially the 3 and the 4 — without constantly being outmuscled.

Perhaps the best part is Ingram understands the importance of being versatile in today’s game.

But how does he plan to do that? It’s pretty simple.

As far as how the workout went, Ingram thought it went “great”,and mentioned how comfortable he felt with the organization.

That being said, he made it clear that he doesn’t have a preference of which team drafts him.
