Have to think Rob is a happy guy today. From Lakers Nation (http://www.lakersnation.com/lakers-news-team-makes-qualifying-offer-to-center-robert-sacre/2013/06/26/):
The Lakers have made a qualifying offer to last year’s second round draft pick center Robert Sacre. Sacre was the 60th overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft.

The Lakers need to stack their roster with big men at the moment because their front line might take a big hit with Dwight Howard still being on the fence about returning to the Lakers next season. Although Sacre did not get a lot of playing time last season, the fact that he is a big body who is willing to bang down low should be enough for the Lakers to consider holding on to him.

In 32 games last season, Sacre averaged 1.3 points and 1.1 rebounds in just six minutes per game. The numbers are obviously not worthy of any praise but in a limited sample size, Sacre showed that he brings tremendous energy to the team. Although he still is developing his game, the Lakers need energy and someone who can help out a locker room. And with Earl Clark also testing free agency, Sacre seems to be a very cheap option that can bring a lot more to a team than just production on the court.I think this will mean an increase of about $500,00 in his salary.

Pretty good for someone that was not good enough to make it to the NBA.

He can receive up to a 4.5% increase over his first years salary. If he got it all that would be a little over $20k. Hope he gets it all.

Go!! Zags!!!

I don't understand, bigblahla. He was making $473,604. He received a qualifying offer of $988,872, a difference of $515,268, or am I missing something?

From the LA Times (http://www.latimes.com/sports/lakersnow/la-sp-ln-robert-sacre-restricted-free-agent-offer-20130626,0,6088585.story):


he Lakers extended a qualifying offer to center Robert Sacre, making him a restricted free agent this summer.

Sacre, taken by the Lakers with the 60th pick in the 2012 NBA draft, received an offer of $988,872 from the team.

"Right now I'm a Laker. I know I'm a Laker and I feel the Lakers are comfortably with me, so let's just go with that," said Sacre last week at a Time Warner Cable Media event to honor the late Dr. Jerry Buss.

While Sacre didn't play many minutes as a rookie, making just 32 appearances at 6.3 a game, he was a positive presence in the locker room and on the practice floor.

Sacre is free to negotiate with the Lakers and other teams in July, but he can accept the team's standing offer at his discretion.

In addition to getting matching tattoos with his girlfriend, Sacre has been a regular at the team's practice facility.

"I work out during the day and then I finish off with a nice day at the beach," Sacre said.

The Gonzaga product is expecting to be a part of the Lakers' summer league team in Las Vegas in July.

"That's the goal. I don't see why not," said Sacre of summer league. "My progression in working out is getting ready for that."

Sacre said he hasn't taken part in the team's recruiting of free-agent center Dwight Howard.

"I do want to be the fault of him choosing the wrong team," Sacre said. "I think he'll be fine."

The Lakers have not announced their intentions with three potential restricted-free agents (Darius Morris, Andrew Goudelock and Devin Ebanks).

You can probably answer that better than I can.

From what I read about NBA qualifying offers and my limited knowledge of same I read it to be as I posted. Oops.

Was the offer for one year or two?

Either way great news for Big Rob.

Go!! Zags!!!

...and with the strong rumors that Howard won't be back, keeping Rob is an inexpensive (even at the $990,000 amount) back up plan.

"The qualifying offer for all other players must be for 125% of the player's previous salary, or the player's minimum salary plus $175,000, whichever is greater. The qualifying offer must be for one season."

Anyone able to explain how Rob got offered $988,872?

If the first paragraph is correct then Rob's minimum for the year would have to be $813,782.

Help?

Go!! Zags!!!

He was making 474k last year(rookie minimum). The minimum for a player with one year of experience makes quite a jump. It looks like they took the new minimum (788k) and added 200k.

I think 200k may be the number now, at least according to what I found.
