Lakers News: Los Angeles Officially Signs No. 2 Pick Brandon Ingram

The Los Angeles Lakers announced they have officially signed No. 2 overall pick Brandon Ingram.

The team did not release the terms of the deal, but according to the NBA's fixed wage scale for incoming rookies, he is slated to make roughly $23,823,685 over four years.

In his lone season at Duke, Ingram averaged 17.3 points and 6.8 rebounds per game while shooting 44.2 percent from the floor, including 41 percent from three-point range.

However, Ingram is not the only playing to recently sign a deal with the Lakers. Chinese big man Yi Jianlian recently signed a three-year deal with the team, and they have reportedly signed undrafted rookie big man Zach Auguste out of Notre Dame.

The 28-year-old Jianlian has spent five seasons in the NBA, last playing for the Mavericks in the 2011-2012 season, in which he averaged 2.6 points and 1.6 rebounds per game. 

Auguste averaged 14.0 points and 10.7 rebounds per game for Notre Dame last season. He also led the Irish to two straight Elite 8 appearances.
