Sasha Vujacic still hoping to land NBA roster spot

Sasha Vujacic

There was a time this summer, when the Lakers went out and got Jordan Farmar and fans thought they may be getting the 2009 band back together, that Sasha Vujacic looked like maybe he could get an NBA roster spot again.

That time came and went (and the Lakers chose wisely not to live in 2009 anymore).

But Marc Stein of ESPN tells us Vujacic (who played in Turkey last season) has not given up his NBA dream.

There are teams looking to fill the 14/15 slots on their roster right now, but most teams would like to fill that slot with a young player they can roll the dice on developing. Vujacic is 29; the only teams likely to take a shot on him are contenders who think he can help (or one that suffers an injury). Right now evidence shows none of them do.

    The Machine played pretty well in his brief time away from the Lakers when he was with the Nets. I hope he can make it back.

      He just needed some time off from Maria. She’s a control freak and a freak in general.

    One of my favorite NBA memories is The Machine hitting those free throws to ice Game 7 of the 2010 Finals. I know he wasn’t very popular outside of LA but I for one would like to see him back in the NBA!

    Grizzlies could use some outside shooting…

    Is he still an 11 o’clock player? Phil said he was lights-out at shootarounds. Typically PJ, pretty sure that wasn’t a compliment.
