After scant minutes in the NBA, rookie center Robert Sacre is expected to play in Developmental League action tonight

With just eight appearances and a total of 19 minutes for the Lakers this season, Robert Sacre is heading to the D-League to play for the Los Angeles D-Fenders tonight. He is joined by fellow rookie Darius Johnson-Odom in the D-Fenders season debut against Idaho.

Sacre, a seven-footer, was drafted out of Gonzaga with the 60th overall pick by the Lakers in 2012. A native Canadian with dual citizenship, Sacre started for three years in college and has payed internationally for Canada. His action on the court for the Lakers has been brief, scoring just one bucket and blocking two shots in 19 minutes scattered across eight games. His lone bucket came in a November 4 win against Detroit, where Sacre played seven minutes.

The Los Angeles D-Fenders, founded in 2006, play at the Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo, Ca. They were the first D-League team to be owned by the parent club. This is the first season that players can move freely from the D-League to the parent club.
