Los Angeles has decided to pick up the options for several of their core players for next season.
The four-time league MVP envisions the third-year forward taking another big leap forward in his development.
Heading into the third preseason game, the Lakers are rolling with Ingram as the starting point guard.
The second-year forward is viewed as one of the most likely players in the league to put together a breakout 2018-19 campaign.
James has voiced that Los Angeles is looking to be a team with players that can play interchangeable positions this upcoming season.
Heading into training camp, the Lakers will have each of the other four starting spots open for competition in training camp.
The team has yet to propose a deal that includes Ingram as a centerpiece to get the All-Star forward.
Reports suggest that the acquisition of the All-Star forward could help better the Lakers' odds of adding James this summer.
The Lakers are expected to be without three out of their key players for the final stretch of the regular season.
