Brandon Ingram
SF, 6’9, 190lbs, 19 years old, 1 year of experience

Terrible start, good finish, enough to make the net rating of -19 just about avoidable. Ingram looked flat out poor for the majority of his rookie season, but a upswing at the end on both ends of the court showed some upside for the future. Without forcing things, Ingram found some offensive confidence off the dribble, stopped over-faking, attacked the rim and picked up his defensive nuance. Ingram's outside shot is lacking and his non-dunk finishing around the rim was extremely poor. However, the mid-range shot was pretty good, and some strength and experience will improve the finishing. If he stays confident, aggressive and versatile, and if his arms don't shrink, there is good upside to be had here.

Player Plan: Three years of rookie scale salary remaining. The first half of year one was a wash-out, but the second half showed the potential that there is no reason to give up on.
