Lakers Recall Robert Sacre

The Lakers have recalled Robert Sacre from the D-League, according to Arash Markazi of ESPNLosAngeles.com (Twitter link). The 7'0" rookie averaged 7.7 points and 9.7 rebounds in 27.0 minutes over three games with the Los Angeles D-Fenders after being sent down on Wednesday.

Sacre, taken with the final pick of this summer's NBA draft, has appeared in eight games for the big club so far this season, but he's totaled just 19 minutes and scored only two points. He had a much greater impact in the preseason, when he started in place of an injured Dwight Howard and put up 6.5 PPG and 4.8 RPG in 24.7 minutes of work per night.

The Lakers still have fellow rookie and second-round pick Darius Johnson-Odom assigned to the D-Fenders, as our list of this year's D-League comings and goings shows. Players with two or fewer years of experience can be shuttled back and forth as often as their teams like.
