LA Lakers Sign Robert Sacre
Perhaps the clearest indication of the Lakers’ hopes for their draft picks came earlier this week when the team signed undrafted rookies Reeves Nelson and Greg Somogyi before either of the players they had taken in the second round in June.
The Lakers finally signed Gonzaga forward-center Robert Sacre on Friday, though it was unclear if the contract was non-guaranteed and amounted to little more than an invitation to training camp.
Sacre’s agent, Keith Kreiter, would not divulge the terms of the contract.
Sacre, a 7-footer taken with the 60th and final selection in the draft, started all five games for the Lakers’ summer league team, averaging 9.0 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.0 blocks in 30 minutes.
He finished his career at Gonzaga ranked second all-time in school history with 186 blocks. He averaged 9.4 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.4 blocks in his career.
Darius Johnson-Odom, the Lakers’ other second-round draft pick, remains unsigned.
