    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 CBSSports.com 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.
  • Vujacic stepping up for banged-up Nets

    News: With several players out of the lineup yet again Sunday against the Raptors, Nets guard Sasha Vujacic was again in the starting lineup. He didn't shot particularly well, but still managed to score in double-figures for the sixth straight game. Vujacic shot 5 of 14 from the floor, and just 2 of 7 from beyond the arc, on the way to 19 points. He added a matching three rebounds and three assists to go along with a block in 37 minutes of playing time in the loss.
    Analysis: Vujacic has played well down the stretch of the lowly Nets' season, something he is not used to after reaching the postseason more times than not as a member of the Lakers. "It's a sad feeling not being in the playoffs," he said. "It hurts a little bit. But we have two more games and we can't just quit." Vujacic might not play in June again, but he's playing more now than he ever has or would have with L.A. He's doing his best with the increased opportunity, scoring at least 10 points in 11 of the last 12 games. The sharpshooter has struggled a bit from 3-point range this season, but he still puts up serviceable numbers in category-based formats. Fantasy owners should keep him in the mix if they normally do.
  • Vujacic on fire from deep

    News: Nets guard Sasha Vujacic logged a season-high 47 minutes in Saturday's triple overtime win over the Raptors in London. Vujacic matched a season high with 25 points in the contest on 7 of 16 shooting from the field. He went 6 of 9 from downtown and also chipped in with five rebounds, three assists and a block in the victory.
    Analysis: Vujacic had been struggling since the All-Star break but turned in two solid outings during New Jersey's trip to London. The 26-year-old scored 12 and 25 points receptively, and he shot a combined 7 of 13 from behind the arc over that stretch. While Vujacic can be a decent source for 3's, his overall production remains way to inconsistent too warrant starting in the majority of Fantasy formats. Leave him for deeper formats heading into Fantasy Week 20 (March 7-13).
  • Vujacic unproductive in start

    News: New Jersey guard Sasha Vujacic got the start on Friday night against San Antonio. He didn't have a great night shooting the ball as he went 3 for 9 from the field -- going 1 for 5 from downtown -- and hitting his lone foul shot. Vujacic finished with eight points, two rebounds, four steals and an assist in 26 minutes of action. New Jersey would lose the game in Deron Williams' debut, 106-96.
    Analysis: Vujacic had been slumping entering the All-Star break and isn't starting of the second part of the season much better. Playing with Williams should give him more Fantasy value, but as it stands now he doesn't have much. He's averaging 10.0 points, 3.4 boards and 2.4 assists over his last 10 games. Owners in the deepest of Fantasy leagues should view him as a low-end guard option the remainder of the season.
  • Vujacic hopes slump over

    News: The New York Post reports that Nets guard Sasha Vujacic recently went through a six-game slump where he shot .340 (16-of-47) from the field and his average in New Jersey dropped four points from 11.5 to 7.5. "I just didn't feel right," Vujacic said. "I would come off the pick, and I wouldn't get a wide-open shot. Or I would force a shot. Or dribble and go in the paint and there was nothing there. I just was trying so hard to get myself into the game. And we just weren't playing the right way. I was getting frustrated. I was trying a little too hard to get myself and everybody else going and I forgot to play -- not so much the right way -- but to do what the team needed at that moment. Sometimes, you just want so bad to win, you forget everything else." Vujacic spent extra time watching film, and it paid off Wednesday against New Orleans. He scored a career-high 25 points, and the Nets produced a 103-101 overtime victory over the playoff-bound Hornets.
    Analysis: Vujacic will likely remain a streaky scorer, but he's getting an opportunity with the Nets that he never had with the Lakers. Continue to monitor his progress, and if he keeps playing like this then he should be added in most leagues. Heading into Fantasy Week 17, Vujacic is only owned in 8 percent of leagues on CBSSports.com.
