How Did Andre Ingram Become Rich?
Ingram had an athletic sense from his teenage. He used to play basketball with his seven years older brother and would often defeat him. His stamina was stubborn from an early age. In 2002, when he was at the Highland Springs High School Virginia, he led the Highland Basketball team and earned the popular AAA Championship 2002-2003. This was the highest award in the history of the Highland school. He maintained an average of 22.8 points and got honored as The Associated Press Group AAA Player of the Year. Following this immediate success, Ingram became popular in his school. Both youngsters and senior coaches made him a special part of their conversation.
He pursued his career as a basketball player in his college years, leading the American University team with numberless wins – from 2003 – 2007. During this period, he won several awards. Some of those include the PL Pre-season Player of the Year, Second Team All Patriot League Award; he also won Patriot Player of the Week and Patriot Player of the Year for two consecutive years respectively.
With his early success, Ingram kicked off his professional career as a basketball player in 2007 when he got selected at the seventh round of the NBA League. He got selected in Utah Flash and played for four successful years (from 2007 to 2011.) He had performed his career-best performance with the record-breaking 2098 points, 608 rebounds and 336 assists. This was the era when his fame was at its peak as he got awarded with the Jason Collier Sportsmanship of the Year Award 2010.
From 2012 and onwards, he played for Los Angeles D-Fenders – which is now called South Bay Lakers – and led the D-Fenders to the West Division Championship in 2016. Nonetheless, Ingram had suffered some injuries and remained off-screen for a while. But he still continues his career while playing for the Lakers and South Bay. To date, he has played some 384 games in the NBA minor league and each has been a source of success and fame for him.
What Is Andre Ingram Net Worth?
As of September 2021, Ingram has a net worth of $1 million. The solely relied source of his hefty income is his athleticism and his career as a professional NBA player. For the last fourteen years, he has been consistently playing basketball in different leagues and tournaments in NBA. It will not be wrong to say that Ingram is one of the highest paid basketball players in the US.
Needless to say, he had a challenging career where he fought for 10 years to join the NBA League. In the meantime, he played numberless minor games and performed some tiny paying jobs. This was significantly difficult for him given the fact that he will put in his blood and sweat for a tiny payment.
Amongst his career-best earning is his long-lasting association with the South Bay Lakers – a.k.a. D-Fenders. In 2018, he signed a contract with the Los Angeles Lakers for the NBA Season’s final two games 2018 – 2019. He earned $13,824 for the two final games. It is pertinent to mention here that this was the pay of only two days with the Lakers. Compared to that, for the entire G League season that year, Ingram earned roughly $19,000. Likewise, he had an annual salary of $48,949 with the Lakers in 2017 and 2018. This was reportedly increased – in his successive subsequent years – to $76,236 in late 2019 and 2020. Of course, Ingram has been playing numberless other games where he has been highly paid. Ultimately, it adds up to his ever-increasing net worth.

A stone turns into gold when it is touched by him,” says Josh Magette – one of the D-Fender’s starting point guards and the one who knows him both on and off-screen.
He lives in a lavishly designed palatial house in Virginia – which is his native land. In his leisure time, he spends quality time with his family – Marilee and his daughter – often drifting on the beaches of Virginia. He is also a devoted solo traveler as he loves to travel across the US and overseas alone.
