Brandon Ingram shared his thoughts on his trade from the Los Angeles Lakers to the New Orleans Pelicans in the summer of 2019.

Ingram noted that he had to deal with several trade rumors until he found out that he was moving to New Orleans.

“Granted, I hadn’t been in the league long but I just felt like things were not normal. Like every day I would hear former players from the Lakers be like, ’This is not now things are supposed to go. This isn’t how the organization is supposed to be ran,'” Ingram said during his appearance on “The Old Man and the Three” podcast, via Lakers Nation.

Ingram was traded to the Pelicans in exchange for Anthony Davis and has become the superstar of New Orleans.
