Second-year center Robert Sacre appeared in 65 games (13 starts) towards averages of 5.4 points and 3.9 rebounds on 47.7 percent field goals in 16.8 minutes.
- On what he learned most from this season:
“That I belong. Sometimes it’s tough for coaches to deal with players that don’t know where they fit in this league. I feel like I fit in this system.”
- On where he sees his game improving:
“I see myself being a really good player, offensively and defensively. I need to improve on some stuff and I need to be realistic, but I feel like I can get there.” Sacre noted that his increased playing time this year helped with his development.
- On playing with Steve Nash:
“Steve has been a great influence on me from the fact we came from the same area. If he can’t play due to his body, he’ll be around and you can take whatever is in his mind and use it towards your game. I’m definitely going to be picking his brain.”
- On what he saw from the guys throughout the season:
“We had to deal with a lot of adversity. It showed a lot of character on the team. People stuck with it and bought into the system even though it wasn’t the season we wanted. It showed a lot of character how guys toughed it out.”
