   2010 Summer League Rosters: Golden State Warriors

Joe Ingles

Ingles was a member of the Warriors summer league team last year, and later went to Spain to play for CB Granada. He put up a good season, averaging 11.0ppg, 4.1rpg and 2.6apg. Ingles shot more threes than twos and hit only 35% of them, but to go to Spain and be a genuinely effective point forward aged only 22 is no mean feat. I stand by my claim that he should have been drafted. After all, Chinemelu Elonu was.

   An Unnecessarily Exhaustive Guide To The Euroleague Final Eight

[Terence] Morris has started at small forward for most of the season after Pete Mickeal was ruled out for the season with a pulmonary embolism. He brings the ability to spread the floor and defend opposing perimeter-based forwards, as he usually has more athleticism than they do, which also allows him to drive on them. To back him up, and further offsetting the loss of Mickeal, Barca picked up Joe Ingles at midseason from ACB strugglers CB Granada. And while he hasn't played well in the Euroleague yet, Ingles has done in ACB play. He's hit his shots, played mostly mistake-free, defended the perimeter, moved the ball, and even hit a game winner at one point. Rather than starring for a bad team, he's now a useful role player for an elite one. And that's surely better for all concerned. Except CB Granada.

(Incidentally, it was Joe Ingles who inadvertently poked Jon Scheyer in the eye during summer league that largely ended Scheyer's first professional season before it started. Scheyer is finally back playing, and playing well, averaging 15/4/4 for the Rio Grande Valley Vipers. But he has Ingles to thank for it coming to this. Some bonus trivia there.)

   Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 32

- Joe Ingles

Australian international Ingles went undrafted this past summer, and then attended summer league with the Golden State Warriors. After that he moved to Spain and joined CB Granada, where he is averaging 11.5 points, 4.2 rebounds and 2.6 rebounds in 29 minutes per game. He is shooting only 34% from three point range and has taken as many threes as twos, which is less than ideal.

Ingles's team mates at Granada include Jimmie Snap Hunter and Richard Hendrix, both recently covered on here. Another one is Icelandic guard Jon Stefansson, the emo one who once signed with the Mavericks. Stefansson had been nothing more than an average player in the German league when Dallas signed him, and since leaving he's been little more than a bench player in Italy. So why did they sign him and stash him on the injured list for a whole year? Not sure. Either way, Stefansson is averaging 9.1 points for Granada this season, shooting 33% from two point range.

If Stefansson can play in the NBA, then so can Andy Rautins. Then again, Stefansson never actually did.

   2017 NBA Manifesto

Joe Ingles
SF, 6’8, 226lbs, 29 years old, 3 years of experience

Durable and reliable, Ingles has become one of the best three-point shooters in the league by percentage, if not by degree of difficulty. Ingles’s steady diet of spot-ups, extra passes, secondary ball handling, timely drives and defensive grind make him a very good role player, who plays within his limits and picks his spots. As everyone gets injured around him, or struggles with their consistency, Ingles comes in and does his thing with remarkable consistency and a high IQ. In not being very fast, Ingles’s upside is not much beyond that which he is already doing, but in doing what he is already doing, Ingles’s value to any team is high.

Player Plan: Entering free agency, with the fact that he is to be restricted a bonus. As useful as Slo Mo Joe is, if someone wants to give him more than the non-taxpayer MLE for his ser-vices, let them - he can be replaced internally, if not identically, with resources needed elsewhere.

   NBA Fantasy Preview - 24th October 2017

A pillar of strength and stability amidst a roster that always seems to be battling injuries, Ingles is averaging 14.7 points, 3.7 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 2.0 steals in 31.3 minutes per game thus far while shooting an absurd 63.6% from three-point range. Ingles will never go off for big nights; his game is based on cuts, good ball movement, moment-picking and a high IQ, rather than ball handling or dynamism. Yet he does not need to be the most explosive player or able to go off for 35+ points in order to be a great value fantasy pick at this price.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
