Prior to the start of a five-game road trip, the Los Angeles Lakers signed Andre Ingram to a 10-day contract as a means of providing some depth on their roster.
Ingram, who played two games for the Lakers during the 2017-18 season, made headlines when he was called up after playing 10 seasons in the G League.
As the Lakers are dealing with major injuries, the 33-year-old was called up once again from the South Bay Lakers in hopes of providing his 45.1 percent career three-point shooting.
However, Ingram played in limited minutes over four games for head coach Luke Walton and will not be signed to a second 10-day contract, according to Bill Oram of The Athletic:

While Ingram’s second stint reportedly will be coming to an end, he shared it meant more to him this season.
As for Machado, he continues to impress for the team’s G League affiliate. In 45 games, the 28-year-old is averaging 16.4 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 8.0 assists.
