Tension appears to be brewing between New Orleans Pelicans small forward Brandon Ingram and head coach Willie Green, with reports emerging of a heated exchange during Game 2 of the team’s first-round playoff series against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

NBA insider Shams Charania revealed that Ingram and Green had a confrontation in the locker room, where Ingram demanded more involvement in the offense, particularly requesting more opportunities to receive the ball.

The incident occurred amidst a challenging playoff series for the Pelicans, who were without injured star Zion Williamson and ultimately suffered a disappointing sweep at the hands of the Thunder.

Ingram’s future with the Pelicans has been subject to speculation, with the team reportedly favoring Trey Murphy III as their primary wing moving forward, and unlikely to offer Ingram a contract extension.

As the Pelicans head into the offseason, the reported discord between Ingram and Green adds another layer of uncertainty to the team’s outlook for the upcoming season.
