EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- The Los Angeles Lakers signed seven-foot Canadian centre Robert Sacre on Friday.

The Gonzaga grad was born in Baton Rouge, La., before moving to North Vancouver, B.C., as a child.

Sacre was the 2012 West Coast Conference Defensive Player of the Year while averaging 11.6 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.4 blocks. He was the last player taken in this year's NBA draft.

The Lakers also added assistant coaches Eddie Jordan, Bernie Bickerstaff and Steve Clifford to Mike Brown's coaching staff.

Jordan is the former head coach at Sacramento, Washington and Philadelphia, leading the Wizards to four consecutive playoff appearances.

The 68-year-old Bickerstaff was a head coach in Charlotte, Seattle, Denver and Washington.

Clifford was Stan Van Gundy's assistant in Orlando the past five seasons.

Los Angeles lost assistant coaches Quin Snyder and Ettore Messina to CSKA Moscow earlier this summer.
