Brandon Ingram has been getting help from an experienced Golden State forward

Published 1 Comments

The clock is winding down ahead of Brandon Ingram's first game in the NBA.

A lot is expected of the young small forward heading into the new season as the L.A. Lakers are without Kobe Bryant for the first time since the 1995-96 campaign.

Much has been made of his slight frame and how his body will cope with the physical demand of an 82-game season, but his play in Summer League was enough to squash some of the doubts, for now.

With the campaign beginning next month, Ingram has spent a lot of time with his new teammates while also picking knowledge from a number of veterans around the league.

One of those players, according to Ingram himself, is Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala.

The 2015 Finals MVP is considered one of the best forwards in the league despite being a bench player for the Bay Area franchise.

He was an All-Star calibre player during his days with the Denver Nuggets before switching to their conference rivals, and he will have a wealth of advice and knowledge to share with the young rook.
