LAKERS RESIGN FREE AGENT SASHA VUJACIC
The Los Angeles Lakers have resigned free agent guard Sasha Vujacic to a multi-year contract, it was announced today by General Manager Mitch Kupchak. Per team policy, terms of the agreement were not released.
The 6-7 guard played in 72 games last season, averaging a career-high 8.8 points and 2.1 rebounds in 17.8 minutes, while shooting .454 from the field and a Lakers single season franchise record .437 from three-point range. In four NBA seasons, Vujacic has posted career averages of 5.2 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 262 games.
The four-year NBA veteran was originally selected by the Lakers in the first round (27th overall) of the 2004 NBA draft after playing three seasons for Snaidero Udine of Italy’s top professional league.
