Lakers Shock 10-Year G-League Vet Andre Ingram With NBA Contract

After 10-years in the National Basketball Association development league and a record 713 three-pointers made, 32-year-old Andre Ingram became the NBA's oldest American rookie since 1964 on Tuesday night, and he did it while dropping 19 points for the Los Angeles Lakers against the NBA's top team, the Houston Rockets, in his debut. Coming off the bench late in the first quarter, Ingram put on a clinic scoring 19 points in his debut. He scored 19 points on 6-of-8 shooting, including hitting 4-of-5 shots from three-point range.

After 10 years in the G League (and the D League when it was named that), Lakers executives had a lot of ways to describe Andre Ingram.

"It was open arms from everyone: all the teammates, all the coaches", Ingram said, per Lakers.com. "Once we went out as a team for warm-ups, I just felt some electricity out there". "Just an inspirational story".

Ingram has quickly become a fan favorite, most evidenced by the "MVP" chants that accompanied a trip to the free-throw line. The Lakers will face the Los Angeles Clippers tonight at the Staples Center at 10:30 p.m. ET. "MVP chants, that's just insane", Ingram told reporters. Ingram had flown his wife and two daughters in from Virginia to watch the culmination of their work.

Also in Rafah, Israeli soldiers shot at the head of Muhammad Said Mousa al-Haj Saleh, 33, killing him. Militant group Islamic Jihad has claimed at least one of the dead as a member.

And let it go Ingram did. But in the first half, the Rockets lost backup forward Luc Mbah a Moute to a dislocated right shoulder while dunking in this meaningless game. The Lakers signed Wear to a 10-day contract, which he parlayed into a second 10-day deal and then a remainder of season contract.
