Ingram has a lot of potential though and played pretty darn well down the stretch. I doubt he alone is enough for Leonard, but he probably is very highly thought of around the league. Most likely more highly thought of then Brown as an example. he isn't in the Simmons class of prospect I don't think, but he probably isn't that far behind him either.
?? Ingram didn't play down the stretch. He sat out 20 of their last 22 games.
More highly thought of than Brown after Brown's playoff performance? Perhaps, by some.
Personally, I wouldn't trade Brown for Ingram straight up. My impression, admittedly having only watched Ingram a handful of games, is that Ingram has a higher potential as a shooter, but isn't the athlete, and nowhere near the defender Brown is. If I had to bet my life on one of them becoming a perennial all star, I'd take Brown.
While he certainly is lacking in the athleticism department, what's even worse is that, in terms of agility/quickness, dude is really only rivaled by Kyle Anderson, imo, LOL. Had Ingram been white, I'm honestly unsure as to whether or not he even would have been drafted in 2016.
On the other hand, had he been a European prospect, I'm sure that everyone would have been gushing over his skill level
. Give me a break.
