Brandon Ingram agrees to five-year, $158M contract extension with Pelicans

All-star F Brandon Ingram has agreed to a five-year, $158M max contract extension with the New Orleans Pelicans.

Fantasy Impact

The reigning Most Improved Player of the Year gets paid, and along with Zion Williamson, will be the cornerstone of the Pelicans franchise for years to come. Ingram averaged 23.8 points, 6.1 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 1.0 steals, and 0.6 blocks in 34 minutes per game last season. His high field goal percentage (46.3%) and free throw percentage (85.1%) make him an attractive early-round target in fantasy leagues this season.

Brandon Ingram wins Most Improved Player of the Year award

Brandon Ingram has been named the Most Improved Player for the 2020 NBA season.

Fantasy Impact

It was truly a spectacular year for the fourth-year forward, as Ingram increased his averages to 23.8 points, 6.1 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game while garnering his first All-Star game selection. Still only 22-years young, the sky is the limit for Ingram and this should be the first of many accolades he should accumulate throughout the entirety of his career.

Brandon Ingram (knee) ruled out of season finale

Pelicans All-Star F Brandon Ingram (knee) will not play in Thursday's game against the Orlando Magic.

Fantasy Impact

Ingram concludes his All-Star campaign averaging career-highs in points (23.8), rebounds (6.1), assists (4.2), steals (1.0), free-throw percentage (85.1), and three-pointers made per game (2.4) across 33.9 minutes per contest. Ingram's set to hit free agency with his value at a premium, and while the Pelicans expressed interest in locking him into a long-term deal, he may decide to choose a different path. Either way, he's going to be one of the top FA's on the market and deservingly so. Expect Josh Hart to pick up minutes in the absence of Ingram on Thursday.

Brandon Ingram (knee) ruled out on Tuesday

Brandon Ingram will not play against the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday due to soreness in his right knee.

Fantasy Impact

With Ingram being ruled out in addition to Jrue Holiday and Zion Williamson, the Pelicans will have to lean on Josh Hart, JJ Redick, and Lonzo Ball to face the Kings. The Pelicans are on the verge of elimination, so Ingram may not get the minutes he's accustomed to going forward.

Brandon Ingram cools off, shoots just 4-of-15 from the field in win

Brandon Ingram came back down to earth Friday, scoring 17 points (4-15 FG, 7-8 FT, 2-5 3PT) with four rebounds, five assists, one steal, and two turnovers across 30 minutes in a win over the Wizards.

Fantasy Impact

Ingram didn’t shoot particularly well in this one after shooting over 50 percent in his previous two games. Even with a down performance from Ingram, the Pelicans still managed to come away with a much needed victory as they technically still have an outside shot at clinching a playoff berth. If they want to keep up their winning ways, they’re sure to rely on Ingram’s ability on the offensive end down the stretch.
