It’s day two of the Lakers’ Summer League, and Brandon Ingram continues to impress. Players and coaches alike are really excited by the poise that the 6’9″ forward shows.

Luke seems to be really happy about the Lakers pick, and is very excited to see what he has to offer in the near future. D’Angelo Russell also had high praise for his fellow number two pick.

The sentiments were felt by Larry Nance Jr as well.

Brandon Ingram seems to be fitting in (as we all thought) extremely well with the young core. Ingram continues to show improvement and that he is willing to work just as hard as the others.

Brandon Ingram’s contract

It is worth noting briefly that Brandon Ingram has yet to sign a contract with the Lakers. This is not unusual at all, as the team and his agent continue to discuss the contract details.  He will be playing in Summer League regardless of the contract status.

“Different feel & it’s fun”

Beyond that, it appears to have been another successful Summer League practice. The young core continues to grow and show that they are a team. Randle, who is not on the Summer League roster, couldn’t resist the opportunity to run scrimmage with the team.

At this point, Julius Randle is starting to look very quick and strong. From Serena Winters’ Instagram, Randle is seen grabbing boards. Also notice that Nance and Randle both took the ball up court on their respective offensive sets.

Though Jesse Mermuys is the Summer League coach, Luke has been leading the practices.  With all due respect to Byron, Luke is a completely different coach. Being a young coach has been an advantage for the players.

Luke offered a few words about his young core that was able to attend the practice, and on his starting point guard D’Angelo Russell.

Being a sophomore player and with a brand new system, it’s no surprise that Russell is going to have work out a few kinks. Walton also offered some words on third year power forward Julius Randle.

Overall, it continues to be sunny skies with the addition of Luke Walton and Brandon Ingram this off season. With Summer League two days away, it’s really exciting to see a change in the attitudes of the players and most importantly the coaches.
