Lakers Sign Greg Somogyi, Reeves Nelson, Robert Sacre

The Los Angeles Lakers have added three rookie big men to their roster: 7-3 center Greg Somogyi, 7-foot center Robert Sacre and 6-8 forward Reeves Nelson. All three played on the Lakers’ summer league team, and will need a strong training camp to secure a permanent roster spot. Via RealGM.com: “Somogyi, a 7-3 center out of UC Santa Barbara, played all four years for the Gauchos where he posted career averages of 3.5 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.5 blocks in 12.2 minutes. Nelson, a 6-8 forward out of UCLA, was also a member of the 2012 Lakers Summer League team where he averaged 4.0 points and 5.3 rebounds in 16.3 minutes of play. Sacre, a 7-0 forward/center out of Gonzaga, was selected by the Lakers in the second round (60th overall pick) in the 2012 NBA draft. Sacre finished his career with the Bulldogs ranked second all-time in school history in career blocks (186) while averaging 9.4 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.4 blocks in 135 games. As a senior, Sacre was named the 2012 WCC Defensive Player of the Year as well as an All-WCC First-Team honoree while averaging 11.6 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.4 blocks.”

    I reckon Sacre will be a beast

    If Kareem trained Sacre well enough, we’d have (at best) a poor man’s poor man’s Kareem, which would be great for a bench guy.
