After acquiring Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, and Josh Hart from the Lakers in exchange for Anthony Davis, the Pelicans bought into the youth movement. With a solid young core consisting of those 3 alongside Zion Williamson, they have a bright future together in New Orleans.
Swingman Brandon Ingram has been having a career year in terms of averages as he is putting up 24 points, 7.1 rebounds, and nearly 6 assists per game.

Though the Pelicans is struggling to rope in a string of wins, BI has been on a tear this season. He’s got his characteristic mid-range game going. He’s getting more accurate from his preferred spots near the free throw line and the elbow region.
Ingram is also starting to up his efficiency while attempting more 3s than ever before in his career. His assist numbers look promising as well, as he is averaging a career high 5.8 assists in the first 9 games of the season.
