Lakers News: L.A. Exercises Team Option On Robert Sacre

  1. The Los Angeles Lakers have been making a number of headlines both before and after the official start of free agency. However, their first official move involves a much smaller name than the ones they’ve been linked to.

    The move shouldn’t come as a surprise. Sacre’s contract is for less than $1 million and he is a good locker room presence who can provide decent minutes at times. His shortcomings tend to show themselves when he is forced to play major minutes, but that is not the intention the Lakers have for him.

    Sacre is a backup center and if the Lakers are successful in luring one of their big-name frontcourt targets to Los Angeles, Sacre likely won’t be a big part of the rotation. The Lakers already have Julius Randle, Tarik Black, Ryan Kelly, and rookie Larry Nance Jr. in the front court.

    As a seven-footer with a cheap contract, Sacre was an easy decision to return for the Lakers as they look to re-tool their frontcourt in free agency. Sacre averaged 4.6 points and 3.5 rebounds last season for the team.
