Los Angeles Lakers forward Brandon Ingram scored a career-high 22 points with two rebounds and one block in Sunday's 119-98 loss to the San Antonio Spurs. What It Means: Ingram went 10-for-15 from the field with one three-pointer as he blew past his previous career-high of 17 points set back in December. The rookie is coming off a miserable four-game stretch where he averaged 5.5 points on 27.6% field goal shooting. Despite the prolific scoring, Ingram struggled overall, posting a -9.0 net rating and a -5.2 nERD rating, per numberFire live.

Most expected Magic Johnson to usurp Lakers front-office power from Jim Buss and Mitch Kupchak at some point, but why did it happen two days before the NBA trade deadline? It might have to do with the DeMarcus Cousins pursuit. The Lakers were among those in the running to acquire Cousins from the Kings, but reportedly bowed out when the Kings asked for 2016 No. 2 selection Brandon Ingram.

Lakers’ Brandon Ingram hopes to model game after Spurs’ Kawhi Leonard

LOS ANGELES — The players’ stoic nature allowed him to hide in anonymity. His relentless aggressiveness and consistent efficiently soon became hard to ignore. Lakers rookie forward Brandon Ingram has tried to apply those concepts in hopes that his game …

Lakers Podcast: Picking apart the Lakers’ loss to the Spurs

There wasn’t a whole lot of good, but we found a couple small bright spots amid a mostly awful game. The Los Angeles Lakers’ loss to the San Antonio Spurs featured plenty of eye-popping (and bad) numbers, from Julius Randle’s shooting percentage to the Lakers posting more turnovers than assists on a day the silver and black put on a ball movement clinic. There were still a few small positives for anyone willing to squint though, and host Harrison Faigen was joined by Bryant Freese of Silver Screen and Roll to discuss Brandon Ingram’s new career-high, Jordan Clarkson’s new role,...

Lakers vs. Spurs Final Score: Sunday slaughter as Lakers lose 119-98

Kawhi Leonard got straight to business. The Los Angeles Lakers had their lunch money taken from them in an early 119-98 loss to the San Antonio Spurs Sunday afternoon. The matinee experience was that of a horror film, with the Lakers playing victim of the slasher film. That would make Kawhi Leonard the antagonist, butchering the Lakers from the opening tip-off. Leonard scored 16 points in the first quarter alone, dominating the purple and gold. It didn’t matter if the ridiculously long arms of Brandon Ingram were up to challenge his shot, he made six of his first eight attempts and...

Lakers Highlights: Brandon Ingram welcomed Taj Gibson to the Thunder by dunking on him

Even his poster dunks look understated. Brandon Ingram’s length allows him to have an unusually relaxed looking game. The rookie just never looks rushed, and his dunk on Taj Gibson looked downright casual: Get out of the way, Taj. pic.twitter.com/TEhw2w4yfV— Lakers Outsiders (@LakersOutsiders) February 25, 2017 “Oh, were you there? Sorry, I didn’t see you.”- Ingram, probably. Harrison Faigen is co-host of the Locked on Lakers podcast (subscribe here), and you can follow him on Twitter at @hmfaigen.

Video: Watch Magic Johnson work out with Brandon Ingram after the Lakers’ practice

Greatness works with (maybe possible future) greatness. His blockbuster trade for Tyler Ennis and the draft rights to Brad Newley firmly in the rear-view mirror, Los Angeles Lakers president of basketball operations Magic Johnson wasn’t done with his day just yet. The Lakers’ new head honcho flew with the team to Oklahoma City for their Friday game against the Thunder, and after watching practice, Magic took the opportunity to offer a bit of tutelage to rookie forward/backup point guard Brandon Ingram: Magic didn’t wait long to deliver some on-court tips to Brandon Ingram (here...

The Lakers not trading for DeMarcus Cousins reportedly led to Mitch Kupchak and Jim Buss being fired

Los Angeles’ shake-up may have occurred because of the lack of shake-up on the roster. The Los Angeles Lakers attempted to trade for former Sacremento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins over the weekend, but reportedly refused to include second overall pick Brandon Ingram in any package for the now New Orleans Pelicans center. There has been scuttlebutt since that the Kings’ decision ultimately came down to the Lakers and Pelicans offers anyway and that Cousins would be a Laker today if the team had their 2017 first round pick outright (it will convey to the Philadelphia 76ers if it lands...

Kings' DeMarcus Cousins trade decision came down to Lakers, Pelicans, according to report

And you won’t believe how good Sacramento thinks Buddy Hield can be. The biggest news of All-Star weekend, even during the game itself, was the trade speculation suddenly swirling around now-former Sacramento Kings big man DeMarcus Cousins. The saga eventually ended when Cousins was dealt to the New Orleans Pelicans, but the Los Angeles Lakers were reportedly involved in the talks as well, with negotiations breaking down when they refused to include prized rookie Brandon Ingram. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of the Vertical (who was unsurprisingly on top of the Cousins talks from start...

Metta World Peace says the Lakers shouldn’t have traded future ‘superstar’ Brandon Ingram for DeMarcus Cousins

Strong stuff from World Peace in the wake of Sunday night’s trade rumors. The Los Angeles Lakers were widely reported to be in talks to trade for Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins before he was ultimately dealt to the New Orleans Pelicans. The (reported) hangup? The Lakers didn’t want to include 2017 second-overall pick Brandon Ingram. According to at least one member of the Lakers, that was the right call. “Absolutely not. I like Brandon, and I think he’s going to be a superstar. I like who we have on the Lakers,” World Peace said on “Undisputed” when asked whether or...

The Lakers chose a clear direction by not trading for DeMarcus Cousins

By not pursuing the volatile superstar, Los Angeles showed it is truly committed to a rebuild The Los Angeles Lakers had an opportunity to land a superstar it had long been linked to on Sunday evening. DeMarcus Cousins, the versatile big man from Sacramento, was being shopped around and the Lakers were one of the teams interested. Sacramento eventually cut off talks with the Lakers because the front office refused to part with the team’s 2016 first round pick Brandon Ingram. It’s unclear whether the Lakers offered the Kings any of their other young players like Julius Randle,...

The Lakers’ lineup changes have offered mixed results

The Lakers’ lineup changes have offered mixed results

The starters have been good, but the rest of the team’s lineups have been less positive. Five games ago, the Los Angeles Lakers fully embraced their youth movement in the starting lineup. High-priced and underwhelming free agent additions Luol Deng and Timofey Mozgov were out, and Tarik Black and Brandon Ingram were in to replace them. Despite having their metrics nuked by a loss to the Phoenix Suns in which the Lakers essentially rolled over in their last game before the All-Star break, the new lineup has been fairly solid so far. The Lakers have outscored their opponents by 2.1 points...

Lakers Trade Rumors: Front office refused to include Brandon Ingram in DeMarcus Cousins deal

This will go over well. NBA Twitter is still reeling after the Sacramento Kings gave away the best player they’ve had in decades traded DeMarcus Cousins to the New Orleans Pelicans. As more information has come out about what went into the deal, the Los Angeles Lakers apparently had an opportunity to acquire the uber-talented big man, but refused to part with an important part of their rebuild: Brandon Ingram. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports broke the story. Say what you will about whether the Lakers missed an oppotunity, for a young player in an up-and-down rookie campaign, this...
