The 2016 NBA Draft is officially underway.
At No. 2 overall, the Los Angeles Lakers have selected former Duke star Brandon Ingram, as expected, following the 76ers’ selection of LSU’s Ben Simmons at No. 1.

Ingram only played one season at Duke, but proved worthy of such a draft stock averaging 17.3 points, 6.8 rebounds, 2 assists, 1.4 blocks and 1.1 steals a game this past season.
He is now the 40th first rounder – and 15th top-5 pick – to come out of the Duke basketball program.
