As the Lakers work to clear cap space to sign free agents and absorb Hibbert’s contract, Nick Young is a strong candidate to be unloaded, sources told Yahoo Sports. The Lakers are finalizing details to acquire Hibbert, and there remains a possibility Los Angeles could send a player to the Pacers in the agreement, sources said. The Lakers and Pacers had agreed on a future second-round pick as compensation for Hibbert and his $15.5 million 2015-16 salary getting absorbed into Los Angeles’ salary-cap space. The Lakers are exploring trades for Young, Ryan Kelly and Robert Sacre. Sacre and/or Kelly are possibilities to go to Pacers, sources said.

Lakers keeping Robert Sacre

The Lakers exercised a $981,359 team option to retain center Robert Sacre for the 2015-16 season, according to league source familiar with the situation. The Lakers did not formally decide until the deadline at midnight on Tuesday. Though Sacre averaged only 4.6 points on 41.2 percent shooting and 3.5 rebounds as mostly a backup center, the Lakers still valued him for numerous reasons. The Lakers do not currently have any true centers on their roster, while they have a glut of power forwards, including Julius Randle, Larry Nance Jr. Tarik Black and Ryan Kelly. The Lakers appreciated Sacre’s effort on defense and overall attitude. And Sacre hardly has a relatively expensive price tag.
The Los Angeles Lakers are expected to pick up center Robert Sacre’s veteran-minimum team option, league sources told RealGM. Sacre — solidifying himself as a viable reserve big man and defensive presence in three NBA seasons — has lost 15 pounds since the end of the Lakers’ season. He is under a guaranteed option at $981,348 for next season, and there’s a chance the Lakers could look into reworking a longer-term deal with the 26-year-old.
