In a clip that was released on the Lakers' Twitter account of Pippen from practice, James qute tweeted the video, praising Pippen and his potential future in the NBA.

The younger Pippen played three seasons at Vanderbilt improving every year until he declared for the NBA draft in 2022, going undrafted but signing a two-way deal with the Lakers -- meaning he could play part-time for the Purple and Gold and the organization’s affiliate in the G League the South Bay Lakers.

In five games in the Summer League, Pippen put up averages of 11.8 points, 3.2 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 2.6 steals, and 0.6 blocks. Pippen still has a lot to prove in the NBA but the sky seems to be the limit for the 21-year-old guard.
