      Knicks' Sasha Vujacic: Stays in deep bench role Monday

      Vujacic played only three minutes and did not score in Monday's 95-78 loss to the Heat. After averaging about 23 minutes per game in the Knicks' first eight games, Vujacic's minutes have dropped drastically as he has only played 16 minutes total in the previous seven contests. The main reason for that is the shooting guard has shot very poorly this season (.286 FG%, .167 3P%) which has kept him out of the rotation as of late.

      Knicks Sasha Vujacic earns start in opener Wednesday

      Knicks shooting guard Sasha Vujacic will get the start in the Wednesday season opener in Milwaukee, reports Ian Begley of ESPN. Vujacic has never averaged more than 10 points or two assists over the course of his previous eight years in the NBA and now that he's 31 years old things aren't expected to suddenly change. Until Arron Afflalo (hamstring) returns, expect Vujacic to see extended time on the court with limited production.

      Knicks' Sasha Vujacic: Could be in store for added minutes

      Vujacic could be in store for unexpected minutes in Wednesday's season opener against the Bucks since Arron Afflalo is battling a hamstring injury. Afflalo hasn't been ruled out, but has missed the last couple days of practice and a large portion of the preseason with his hamstring injury. If Afflalo is unable to play in the opener, Vujacic would likely share time with Langston Galloway at shooting guard.

      Knicks' Sasha Vujacic: Collects eight points in starting role Monday

      Vujacic tallied eight points (3-13 FG, 2-2 FT), three assists, five rebounds, and a steal over 21 minutes in Monday's 94-88 victory over the Sixers. The veteran has started all three exhibitions, even though he is fully expected to come off the bench as Arron Affalo's primary backup during the regular season. After hitting 75 percent of his shots from long range in his last contest on Oct. 9 against the Wizards, Vujacic went cold from beyond the arc Monday, missing all four attempts and shooting just 23 percent from the field overall. Nevertheless, Vujacic was a consistent source of other counting stats once again, hauling in five boards for the third consecutive contest and contributing a trio of assists for the second time in the first three preseason games. As previously stated by Knicks President Phil Jackson, the 31-year-old is expected to play an important role in the regular rotation in 2015-16, although his average amount of playing time is yet to be determined.

      Report: Sasha Vujacic will sign with Clippers

      The Orange County Register reports that the Clippers will sign guard Sasha Vujacic to a 10-day contract on Monday. Vujacic met with the team this weekend and took a physical, according to the Los Angeles Times. He last played in the NBA in 2010-11 when he split his season between the Los Angeles Lakers and New Jersey Nets before going overseas.

    • Nets would bring back Vujacic

      News: The Bergen County Record reports that the Nets would have interest in bringing back guard Sasha Vujacic, who is an unrestricted free agent, according to GM Billy King. "It's going to depend - all our free agents - what the cap's going to be and what they want," King said. "You won't be able to keep them all, and depending on what the cap's going to be its going to determine how many of them we do keep."
      Analysis: Vujacic played well this past season, especially following a trade from the Lakers to the Nets. He had career-high averages in points (9.8), rebounds (2.8), and assists (2.0). Keep an eye on where Vujacic ends up in 2011-12, but he would remain a low-end Fantasy option in the majority of leagues. He is only worth drafting with a late-round pick in deeper formats if he lands in the right situation.
    • Vujacic wraps-up career year

      News: Nets guard Sasha Vujacic was expected to play much more of an offensive role once he was traded from the Lakers in December. He did just that, and ended up having a career-best season in the NBA. Vujacic saw more playing time, and opportunity off of the bench than ever before. He took advantage, achieving career-highs averages in points (9.8), rebounds (2.8), and assists (2.0). The swingman saw more total minutes than in previous seasons, logging 1648 in 67 games. He even started seven games at shooting guard, and averaged 15-4-3 on those nights.
      Analysis: Vujacic was drafted more for his 3-point value heading into the season, as owners expected him to come off the bench and free up whenever he wanted to in start-studded L.A. Instead, he actually had to create his own shot at times in lowly New Jersey. Still, Vujacic proved that he was more than a long-range shooter this season. His downtown percentage was just 37.0, so Vujacic had to score in more conventional ways. He was taken just after the 10th round in standard leagues, and he may have out-performed the draft position a bit. The Yugoslavian finished ahead of fellow reserve guards Courtney Lee, Leandro Barbosa, and Kyle Korver. Vujacic may see a different role next season, considering he is an unrestricted free agent. He has expressed a desire to re-sign with the Nets, though he admits that he likely won't come on a discount. If he remains in Jersey, we like Vujacic as a low-end option worth a late-round pick on Draft Day.
