Lakers News: Robert Sacre Looking Forward To Next Season
[new_royalslider id=”228″]

The Lakers faced the Minnesota Timberwolves Friday night and were blown out 143-107. As the losses continue to pile up, the Lakers appear to be headed to set the franchise’s worst record since moving to Los Angeles.

Despite the tough season, Lakers center Robert Sacre is looking forward to bouncing back next year, according to Mike Bresnahan of the LA Times.

“No question,” he said. “We’re at the bottom so might as well just go to the top. There’s nowhere else but up from now, so I don’t see anything else.”

Lakers head coach Mike D’Antoni recently referred to Sacre as the team’s hardest worker. With the offseason approaching for the Lakers, Sacre seems ready to improve his game even more over the summer.

“I can’t tell you,” he said. “Wherever I play — and that’s been when I’m in college, high school, wherever — I create a home for myself, an environment where I feel comfortable. And I just make sure throughout that whole summer that’s where I’m at and that’s where I train.”

Sacre’s optimism should not be a surprise to anyone following the Lakers. The former Gonzaga Bulldog became a fan favorite due to his cheering on the bench. Even when the Lakers are playing poorly, Sacre is always looking for the bright side and willing to cheer on his teammates.

The Lakers drafted Sacre with the last pick of the 2012 NBA Draft and has rewarded the Lakers with his effort. Sacre is one of the Lakers that has a contract to play in Los Angeles next season and has improved his numbers from his rookie year. With his minutes up from 6.3 a game to 15.8, Sacre’s scoring and rebounding have also increased.

The Lakers will have a high lottery pick in this year’s draft and will have over $20 million in cap space. Sacre is right that the Lakers can improve. With the pieces they can assemble this off-season, Sacre and the Lakers will be looking forward for next season.
