The Los Angeles Lakers have signed G-League star Andre Ingram to a 10-day contract, the team announced on Monday. 

Fans might remember Ingram from last season, when the 33-year-old made his NBA debut in the final two games for the Lakers.

Now in his sophomore season, Ingram is back with the Lakers after a long stint with the organization's G-League affiliate, the South Bay Lakers. 

Ingram is the G-League's all-time leader in three-pointers and has played in the lower league for 11 seasons.

In two games with the Lakers last season, Ingram averaged 12 points, three rebounds, and 3.5 assists. Ingram is expected to be in uniform and ready to take the court as the team opens up a five-game road trip in Chicago on Tuesday.

The Lakers' roster is now at 17 players, and the move makes it unlikely the team will add any free agents for the remainder of the season like Carmelo Anthony or Marcin Gortat.
