Led by Brandon Ingram, former Lakers have found their place on Pelicans

LOS ANGELES — In the first month of his Lakers tenure, just before he hit a winning lottery ticket, Coach Frank Vogel still felt pretty good about the roster he was inheriting. With Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball and Josh Hart, the Lakers wouldn’t have been as good as they were last season with Anthony Davis.
