Pelicans waive C Robert Sacre.
Sacre bleu! With the Pelicans playing Anthony Davis at the five a ton and Terrence Jones playing well, the Pelicans felt they didn't need one of the most excited bench players after someone else makes a big play. Fri, Oct 21, 2016 02:07:00 PM

Robert Sacre (foot) is probable to play on Thursday.

He's fighting for a roster spot and it won't be easy to make the team with Anthony Davis (ankle) set to play more minutes at center this year.

Robert Sacre (right foot) will not play vs. the Hawks on Tuesday.

At best, Sacre will be the third-string center this season.

Robert Sacre (right foot) will not play on Wednesday vs. the Rockets.

He's not guaranteed a roster spot in New Orleans, and it's not a good sign that the Pelicans have already ruled him out. He's completely off the fantasy radar.

Robert Sacre (right foot) will not play against the Rockets on Sunday.

It's unclear when he suffered the injury, but Sacre would've had a tough time making the Pelicans anyway.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Wed, Feb 10, 2016 06:36:00 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.
Mon, Feb 8, 2016 05:38:00 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.
Wed, Jul 1, 2015 03:14:00 AM

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.
