The Pelicans have signed Robert Sacre to a training camp deal.
The Pelicans' biggest weakness is at center with Omer Asik and Alexis Ajinca in town, but Sacre still projects to be third on the depth chart if he makes the final roster. There's no fantasy value here. Sep 22 - 12:23 PM

The Pelicans have extended a training camp invitation to Robert Sacre.

Kendrick Perkins is an unrestricted free agent, and unlikely to be retained by New Orleans, so Sacre could find himself a spot on the Pelicans' opening-night roster as their third-string center. However, as long as the team is healthy, Sacre's fantasy value will be completely non-existent.
Aug 11 - 5:11 PM

Robert Sacre played well vs. the Kings on Tuesday with 10 points, five boards and two assists in 22 minutes.

He picked up some extra playing time with Brandon Bass (eye) out and it helped that Roy Hibbert is the still the most invisible 7-footer on the planet. Sacre was a perfect 5-of-5 from the field and possibly earned a role going forward, but he's only worth monitoring in ridiculously deep leagues.
Mar 16 - 1:08 AM

Robert Sacre will return to the bench for Wednesday's game vs. Cleveland.

Sacre started on Monday with Roy Hibbert (ankle) out, but he basically did nothing during his 15 minutes on the court. Sacre belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Feb 10 - 6:36 PM

Robert Sacre will start against the Pacers on Monday for Roy Hibbert (ankle).

Scare played 16 minutes on Saturday and will likely be closer to 20 tonight. Expect to see minutes going to Tarik Black and Brandon Bass, as well. Sacre is not a great fantasy play.
Feb 8 - 5:38 PM

Robert Sacre played 19 minutes against the Wolves on Wednesday with nine points, three rebounds and six fouls.

Coach Byron Scott likes to play Sacre every once in a while, but he usually just does so temporarily. He has seen his playing time increase in each of his last three, but is only worth a look in deep leagues.

Robert Sacre was inactive in Sunday's loss to the Mavericks.

Metta World Peace's activation meant someone had to go, and Sacre was the easiest choice. This will probably be his last blurb for a while.

The Lakers have exercised their $981k option to retain C Robert Sacre for the 2015-16 season.

The low price-tag for a decent backup big man makes this a logical decision for the Lakers, whose free-agent focus is on a bevy of PF/Cs including LaMarcus Aldridge, DeAndre Jordan and Greg Monroe. As long as L.A.'s eventual starting center is healthy, there's no reason to consider Sacre as a fantasy option on draft day.

The Lakers are expected to pick up Robert Sacre's team option for next season.

Sacre is scheduled to make $981,348 next season, so it's a fair price for a quality reserve big. He averaged 4.6 points and 3.5 rebounds per game on 41.2 percent shooting from the field in the 2014-15 season, so he won't be an option in fantasy leagues.

Robert Sacre said that he's hopeful to remain with the Lakers next season.

The Lakers have a team option on Sacre, but it's not exactly like he's a building block for a championship contending team, so it wouldn't be shocking to see them decline the option if they need to clear salary for a bigger signing. Sacre also said he'll spend the offseason working on his post game, and everything, but we're not expecting a major improvement during his fourth-year. Sacre finished the 2014-15 season with averages of 4.6 points and 3.5 rebounds per game on 41.2 percent shooting from the field, he's not going to be an option in most leagues next year.

Robert Sacre is warming up to face the 76ers on Monday.

We're trying to piece together the rotation for tonight and it looks like Sacre is going to be in the rotation. Of course, that might not be the case. Use this information however you like.

Robert Sacre is hopeful that the Lakers exercise their team option on him for next season.

"I would love to be back here. It would be fun," said Sacre. "You’re a Laker. What else can you ask for? There’s no other franchise like it. It’s an honor to wear purple and gold." Sacre has gotten some extra opportunities in the past three games due to the Lakers holding Jordan Hill and Carlos Boozer out of the lineup, and he has put up averages of just 3.7 points, 3.0 boards and 1.0 steal over that span. There is no denying that Sacre is a great teammate, but unless these numbers appeal to you, he belongs on the wire in most leagues.

Robert Sacre never left the Lakers' bench vs. Dallas on Sunday.

Jordan Hill, Tarik Black, Carlos Boozer and Ed Davis absorbed all the frontcourt minutes tonight and there's obviously no reason to hang onto Sacre in any leagues. Among other unflattering statistics, Sacre's 11.2 percent rebound rate ranks dead-last among true centers this season.
Mon, Mar 9, 2015 12:16:00 AM

The Lakers will start Jordan Clarkson, Wayne Ellington, Ryan Kelly, Carlos Boozer and Robert Sacre against the Jazz on Wednesday.

Their second unit is thin with Nick Young (knee) out, so there should be a lot of Jeremy Lin and Jordan Hill off the bench. Sacre did only play 11 minutes due to foot soreness, but he's still not a reliable fantasy option.
Wed, Feb 25, 2015 02:17:00 PM

Robert Sacre (foot) returned to practice on Tuesday.

The Lakers are listing Sacre as questionable for Wednesday's game against Utah, and if he's unable to, Ed Davis or Jordan Hill will have the opportunity to return to the starting lineup. Sacre is averaging a meager 6.8 points and 6.1 rebounds on 38.4 percent shooting with the starting unit, and he can't be considered a viable option in standard leagues.
