New Orleans Pelicans forward Brandon Ingram will reportedly put extension talks on hold until next summer. He is currently set to enter the fourth season of a five-year, $158.2 million deal. The 26-year-old noted in the offseason that he loves life in New Orleans, but it appears as though he isn't rushing into inking a new deal to secure a bigger payday for himself. Ingram's contract value increases to a maximum extension of $334 million for five seasons if he can earn All-NBA honors this season. Considering his injury history, it's a pretty risky move. Ingram hasn't played in at least 65 games since his rookie season in 2016-17, and he's missed 67 games across the past two campaigns alone.
New Orleans Pelicans forward Brandon Ingram hasn't been bothered by trade rumors and is very happy with his current situation. "For me, I love New Orleans," Ingram told The Athletic's William Guillory. "It's perfect for me and the way I want to operate. Less distractions. I can go play basketball whenever I want to. I've got direct access to the facility. I've got people close to me who can come to the gym and help me at any time. I feel connected with New Orleans and the people around me." Ingram's future is set to become a hotter topic with each passing week, as the 25-year-old star has only two seasons remaining on his contract. The former Laker has had a great time in New Orleans and will enter next season coming off a career year. Ingram averaged 24.7 points with 5.5 rebounds and 5.8 assists in 2022-23.
New Orleans Pelicans forward Brandon Ingram is unlikely to be moved this offseason. The organization says no player is untouchable, but they have shown little interest in moving Ingram, according to Yahoo Sports. Ingram is coming off a 45-game, injury-plagued season with the Pelicans. Despite that, he still averaged 24.7 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 5.8 assists per game across 34.2 minutes this past season. When healthy, Ingram is a reliable contributor, but keeping him on the court has been tough. Ingram still has two years left on his deal, and it appears the team plans to keep him around.
New Orleans Pelicans forward Brandon Ingram continued his hot streak but it wasn't enough as the team's season ended on Wednesday after their five-point loss to the Thunder. The Duke product finished with 30 points, seven assists, six rebounds, and one block on an efficient 10-for-19 shooting and 9-for-11 from the charity stripe. Ingram was one of the only Pelicans that didn't disappoint, but while Zion Williamson remains sidelined, they were going to need more from everyone to beat a Thunder team with as good of an offense as they do.
