STUD
Robert Sacre, Los Angeles Lakers – The 60th overall pick in the draft recorded a double-double against the Sacramento Kings, finishing with 11 points and 10 rebounds. Sacre has been making an impact down low, using his size and athleticism to cause problems for the opposition. While he still has plenty of room to improve, particularly his post moves and footwork, he’s the epitome of a hustle player. He’s willing to do whatever it takes to help the Lakers win games and he has emerged as a vocal leader for the team. Sacre is the kind of player you want to have around your team and he was able to make an impact on day two.

DUD
Chinemelu Elonu, Los Angeles Lakers – While Elonu was able to contribute six points on 3-6 shooting and grab eight rebounds, he was simply outmatched on the defensive end. He struggled to slow down the opposition so he resorted to hacking anyone and everyone who entered the paint. Elonu finished with 11 fouls in 22 minutes, which means he would have almost fouled out twice if this were a real NBA game. Elonu needs to limit his fouls going forward because it gave the Sacramento Kings plenty of easy points from the charity stripe. He also needs to limit his turnovers in game three.

Sacre is actually looking like a keeper to me.

I watched a lot of him while he was at Gonzaga... he was a disappointment there based on what the coaching staff thought he'd do..... he was dominant at time against smaller competition but got out played when the Zags went up against decent competition. The big issue was that he's essentially the same player today that he was as a red-shirt freshman....... He's a borderline player IMO....

If/when we sign Jamison, he's perfect for the left over minutes at Center. He's a big body who is worth 6 good fouls and a few blocked shots. If the minutes break down like:

Gasol (25)/ Jamison (23)
Bynum (33)/ Gasol (10)/ Sacre (5)

I think that'd be a good rotation, probably a great rotation. Especially with Nash running Point (albeit with a lesser role).

I just realized Sacre had a +/- stat of -50 the last game. :man4: Not that it means much since EVERYONE sucked, but holy cow that really is a head scratcher...
