Backup center Robert Sacre signs a three-year deal with Lakers

Robert Sacre, a backup 7-foot center, signed a new three-year contract Wednesday. The deal is actually for two years plus a team option on the third. Sacre averaged 1.3 points and 1.1 rebounds in 6.3 minutes in 32 games as a rookie last season. He started three games. He also played eight games for the D-League D-Fenders, averaging 11 points and 8.8 rebounds in 32.8 minutes.

“I worked so hard, I kind of felt like I, well, I didn’t deserve it but I do deserve it,” Sacre said.
