Pelicans Expected To Match Any Offer Sheet For Brandon Ingram 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sat Mar 21, 2020 9:04 pm

The New Orleans Pelicans are expected to match any offer sheet for restricted free agent Brandon Ingram, according to Chris Fedor of cleveland.com.


With the likes of Buddy Hield, Domantas Sabonis, Jaylen Brown, and Dillon Brooks signing extensions, Fedor adds that Ingram is the "one restricted free agent with appeal."


Ingram is averaging 24.3 points and 6.3 rebounds on the season.

Some teams will offer him a max contract, New Orleans should just give him that before free agency.

Its not like the article was reporting anything. There is nothing that suggested that New Orleans would force him to go get a max offer. It is a Cleveland based article that basically says there is no free agent route to land Brandon Ingram. It is common sense more than anything being reported.

They have not maxed him yet.. Which seems to imply they will wait for offers to roll in and try to suppress the market..
