Lakers Sign Forwards Ingram, Jilianlian


August 25, 2016

The Lakers took awhile but they signed top draft choice Brandon Ingram this week. They also signed former top 10 draft choice Yi Jianlian, who played well for China in the just-concluded Olympics although the team lost all five of its games.

Ingram is a candidate to succeed Kobe Bryant at small forward. Jianlian will try to earn a roster spot in training camp.

The 6-11 Jilianlian hasn't done well while playing for four NBA teams since he was drafted by Milwaukee in 2007. He has averaged less than eight points a game each year.

'We will take him to training camp and hope he makes an impact on our team,"said Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak.
