Vujacic agreed to a one-year, minimum contract with the Knicks on Tuesday, Shams Charania of the Vertical reports. Vujacic became an unrestricted free agent following the 2015-16 season, but the Knicks elected to re-sign the 32-year-old at a low cost. He averaged 4.9 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.4 assists, and 15 minutes per game through 61 games during this past season. With Derrick Rose, Brandon Jennings, Courtney Lee, and Justin Holiday crowding the backcourt in New York, Vujacic is slated to once again be used as a reserve option off the bench.
Vujacic put up 16 points (6-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, four assists, and two steals across 32 minutes during the Knicks' 109-102 win against the 76ers on Friday. Vujacic was nearly perfect from the field on Friday, and he has averaged 17.7 points on 61 percent shooting to go along with four rebounds, three assists, and 1.3 steals over the last three contests. Vujacic continues to start at shooting guard lately while Arron Afflalo comes off the bench, and that seems unlikely to change in the last two games of the season. With that being said, it might be unwise to expect Vujacic to keep contributing at such a high level going forward.
Vujacic scored 21 points (7-15 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding three rebounds, three assists and two steals in 32 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Pacers. With both Carmelo Anthony (rest) and Kristaps Porzingis (shoulder) sidelined, somebody had to score for the Knicks, and that someone turned out to be Vujacic. He'd scored just 18 combined points in his previous three games and hadn't hit for double digits in almost a month, however, so unless Anthony continues to miss games, don't expect a repeat performance from Vujacic.
Vujacic poured in nine points (3-5 FG, 3-3 3Pt), three assists, a rebound and two steals over 19 minutes in Thursday's 106-94 victory over the Bulls. The former first-round pick continues to open games with the starting five, and then get outpaced in playing time by former starter Arron Afflalo off the bench. Vujacic did see his scoring total increase for the second straight game, and was also perfect from beyond the arc for the second consecutive night. Despite some serviceable production, Vujacic's playing time is currently too capped for him to offer much upside in any format.
Vujacic missed his only shot attempt while chipping in three rebounds and an assist in 13 minutes during Saturday's loss to the Wizards. Arron Afflalo ended up playing 35 minutes off the bench, so while Vujacic could continue to have his name called in the starting five, it doesn't look like he'll have any kind of consistent fantasy value going forward.
