If Brandon Ingram becomes a two-way superstar, he can help the New Orleans Pelicans become title contenders, says NBA Insider Zach Lowe.

As Lowe notes, Ingram should keep playing at an elite level and approach double digits in assists.

“If Brandon Ingram becomes the player he thinks he can be — a two-way superstar who approaches double digits in assists — the Pelicans have a chance to contend for titles,” Lowe says, via NBA Analysis Network.

Since joining the Pelicans via a trade from the Lakers, Brandon Ingram has become an elite player, while he is also the reigning Sixth Man of the Year.

He is averaging 23.3 points, 6.3 rebounds and 5.1 assists for the Pelicans this season.
