“I think it’s going to be a long season on a young player (Brandon Ingram) that has to be stronger, has to get stronger, has to show that he can play for 82 games,” Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak said Tuesday as the team opened training camp at the University of California at Santa Barbara.
“I don’t anticipate that [Ingram] would start. It’s not something that I think has to happen, even though he’s the No. 2 pick.”
