Brandon Ingram has won the 2019-2020 Most Improved Player of the Year award. The New Orleans Pelicans forward has improved in every aspect of his game during this season.

Ingram had 23.8 points, 6.1 rebounds and 4.2 assists per contest shooting an impressive 46% from the field and 39% from beyond the arc.

Of course, that was not enough for the Pelicans, who didn’t make the postseason, after not playing well in Orlando.

Ingram has the best year of his young career and he will be a restricted free agent during the offseason in October. The Pelicans are expected to sign Ingram to a max contract extension.
