The Perth Wildcats have signed American perimeter specialist, Andre Ingram, out of the NBA D-League.

In his eight seasons as a professional, Ingram has shot an impressive 45.5 per cent from range and, in his most recent season, went for a staggering 50 per cent from outside the arc.

The shooting guard’s 583 career threes is an all-time D-League record.

Ingram, 30, is excited to start his journey with the Wildcats.

“It’s all happened very quickly, but I can’t wait to arrive in Australia and meet my new teammates,” he said.

“To start playing with a new team so soon after arriving will be tough, but I’m confident in what I can bring to this group and will be doing all I can to help get us some important wins this weekend.

“Perth is a highly professional organisation with a community focus and I’m very excited to now be a part of that.”

Andre Ingram attended American University in Washington D.C, before playing his entire professional career in the D-League.

In four seasons with the Utah Flash, he became the team’s all-time leading scorer and won the competition’s three-point shoot-out in 2010.

He then moved to the LA Lakers-owned Los Angeles D-Fenders, where he has since become a regular fixture and again won the D-League’s three-point comp earlier this year with a record 39 makes from 50 attempts.

In the 2015/16 season, Ingram averaged 10.4 points per game, 2.8 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.1 steals.
