The Lakers have assigned a second rookie to the D-League, the team announced today (Twitter link). Robert Sacre will join Darius Johnson-Odom on the Los Angeles D-Fenders in time for the club's home opener tonight.
Sacre, the last player taken in the 2012 draft, has appeared in eight games so far for the Lakers, primarily in blowouts. In approximately 19 total minutes of playing time, he has recorded two points and committed eight fouls. The former Gonzaga center will get a chance to receive increased minutes with the D-Fenders.
The Lakers have already assigned Johnson-Odom to the D-Fenders twice this season, as our list of D-League assignments and recalls shows. For Sacre, it's his first D-League assignment.
