Lakers keep former Wildcat Meeks

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) - The Los Angeles Lakers have exercised their contract option on guard Jodie Meeks and extended a qualifying offer to center Robert Sacre.

The Lakers made the moves Wednesday.

Meeks will make $1.55 million next season. He averaged 7.9 points, 2.2 rebounds and 0.9 assists in 78 games primarily as Kobe Bryant's backup last season, occasionally excelling as a 3-point shooter.

Sacre is a restricted free agent after the Lakers made their qualifying offer. The 7-foot Canadian from Gonzaga was the final pick in last summer's draft, and he averaged 1.3 points and 1.1 rebounds in 32 games for Los Angeles last season.
