Before the start of the off-season, the Lakers had a decision to make regarding Sacre and eventually picked up his team option. Although Sacre started in 18 games this past season, the Lakers acquired Roy Hibbert and Tarik Black is expected to make this year’s roster.

While the Lakers have 15 players under contract and are reportedly signing Michael Frazier, general manager Mitch Kupchak could still be looking to add another center or point guard as training camp approaches.
