Andre Ingram Returns to Lakers on a New Contract

The Pistons won't have to deal with Le Bron James tonight

While some have shut down the mere thought of trading LeBron James as the Los Angeles Lakers are most likely bound to miss the playoffs, it seems he's no longer the hot mega-star most teams salivated at during this past offseason.

The Los Angeles Lakers, after so many years without a top talent on the team, finally got one to come to town when LeBron agreed to a deal, but it nearly failed immediately when the franchise was ready to part ways with him in the first year. It usually occurs in legs but can occur in the upper body, too. The Duke product averaged a career-best 18.3 points and 5.1 rebounds per game this season, but he had thrived since the All-Star break, averaging 27.8 points and 57 percent shooting in six games.

Good thing, Bleacher Report noted, because an unidentified Western Conference GM said he'd be interested in James to help contend with the champion Warriors but wouldn't swap his best player for James because, at 34, he needs a stronger supporting cast.

Prominent athletes such as Chris Bosh and Serena Williams have been diagnosed with blood clots in recent years. It is unlikely to be enough to extend the Lakers' season, but James believes they will be playoff contenders in the future.

James opted out of the final year of his contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers last summer and signed a four-year, $154 million deal with Los Angeles.

The team announced Saturday that Ingram, who has missed two straight games due to a sore right shoulder, underwent further testing on Friday. And Josh Hart continues to play despite knee tendinitis that has been bothering him for a few months. Obviously at the end of the day, I got to make sure I don't make the damage worse. I don't look at it as added pressure, because I haven't had a full summer yet to dedicate to myself.

He has never been the subject of trade talks in his established National Basketball Association career, but LeBron James came the closest he has ever been to being traded this season. Our chances are slimming down each and every game. However, finding a team that would give up a king's ransom of The King might be more hard than you would think. "If I get traded, then I get traded", Ball told The Athletic.
