The Los Angeles Lakers are guilty of ball-watching LeBron James too much and must be look to open up more passing lanes, according to Brandon Ingram.
“Yeah we slip into that,” he admitted.
“But also we trust the ball in his hands, we know he’s going to make the right play for the team whether it’s shooting the basketball or passing the basketball.
“We just have to do a better job of being ready, moving without the basketball, moving into open spots and open areas to make plays.
“It’s coming along good. We look to him to make plays. Our youth has to be better in situations like that when we go out and try to be in open areas.
“We have been good, Lonzo’s been good, Kuz has been good. I think we can just do it more and more, more and more as we get into situations as a team.”
Bradley Beal has reportedly told the Washington Wizards that he wants a trade with immediate effect.
Get More Sports’ Chris Sheridan claims Beal has informed Washington of his decision and expects a move.
The Lakers as well as the Boston Celtics are among those teams said to be interested in trying to bring the 25-year-old in.
And they will be boosted by the news that Beal wants to leave Washington.
“Source: @RealDealBeal23 has made it known in no uncertain terms that he wants out of Washington pronto,” Sheridan tweeted.
The Lakers would likely have to give up a few of their talented young players in order to secure any deal for Beal.
Josh Hart has still not completely recovered from an ankle sprain and it is limiting his movement for the Lakers.
But coach Luke Walton still expects his player to be involved against the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday at 2am UK time (6pm in LA).
“He showed up and got treatment and he’s lifting weights now,” Walton said after Monday’s practice.
“I would expect him to (play Tuesday) but we’ll see. Marco (Nunez, athletic trainer) told me his ankle was hurting this morning, so there’s no reason not to let him rest and get treatment.”
