Los Angeles Lakers rising star Brandon Ingram looks forward to sharing the same side of the court with heavily talented guard Lonzo Ball.

The Los Angeles-based franchise added former UCLA Bruins star Ball to its roster last week after selecting the guard at number two in the 2017 NBA draft.

Ingram, a Duke Blue Devils product, had arrived in California a year ago when drafted second overall by the Lakers.

Ball, 19, is one of the most intriguing point guard prospects in recent years. Though listed at 6ft 6in, Ball's quickness and explosiveness are one of his main strengths. The 19-year-old, who is known as a pass-first player, has specifically impressed with his passing abilities as he has a great court-vision.

''I like his game. I like the way he attacks, his game,'' Ingram told ESPN Los Angeles, as revealed by Spectrum SportsNet on Twitter. ''It is going to be fun.''

The expectation

Second overall pick of this year's NBA draft Lonzo Ball is a type of player who could make everyone around him better.

The Los Angeles Lakers are hoping to play a high-paced run-and-gun basketball. Adding Ball to their backcourt is a positive step towards the direction as he fits perfectly that system with his game-style.

The UCLA product loves to sprint down the floor and counter-attack whenever possible, which in most cases ends up with him finishing the play or putting his teammate in a good position to score the basketball.

The team hopes that the rest of the roster will benefit from the guard's presence because of his already mentioned abilities and style of play.

The future

The Los Angeles Lakers would love to see Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram grow into superstars one day.

The two 19-year-old's together provide a ton of talent and promise, which gives the franchise they represent something to be optimistic about.

Ingram's ability to run down the floor, shoot, defend and handle the ball well all while being listed at 6ft 9in makes him a unique talent in the league. The rising forward has been often compared to well-known superstar Kevin Durant.

Ball and Ingram could end up being a nightmare combination for NBA teams in the future, should they find a chemistry on the court and continue their development.

Having 6ft 6in guard Ball and 6ft 9in forward Ingram in the lineup gives the Lakers so much versatility and options on the offensive end as well on the defensive end.

The two players could suit up alongside each other as early as this July as both are expected to feature the upcoming NBA Summer League.
