A look at Scotty Pippen Jr’s performances reveals that he is more than just the son of Chicago Bulls legend, Scottie Pippen. In general, many believe that players drafted into the NBA who are related to former players will get opportunities simply because of their relationship. The decision in this case, however, rests entirely on the merits and skills of Pippen Jr. Despite going unselected in the 2022 NBA Draft, the Los Angeles Lakers signed Pippen Jr. to a two-way contract. However, in recent weeks, he has attracted a lot of attention after the Lakers made a major trade.
