Lakers assign Robert Sacre to D-Fenders

The Lakers assigned reserve center Robert Sacre to the D-Fenders, the team’s Development League affiliate.

Sacre was selected by the Lakers with the last pick (60th overall in the 2012 NBA draft. Although he has impressed the Lakers with his endless energy and ability to stave off minutes for Dwight Howard and Pau Gasol during the preseason, Sacre has only appeared in eight games this season totaling 19 minutes.

The Lakers also assigned second-round draft pick Darius Johnson-Odom to the D-Fenders over the weekend. That leaves the Lakers’ current roster at 13 players.
