Sasha Vujacic will move to the bench on Wednesday.

He has not been good at all, making 18.5 percent from deep. Vujacic may get bumped to single digits in minutes tonight.
Nov 11 - 5:40 PM

Sasha Vujacic acknowledged that he's in a shooting slump.

Shooting 30.2 percent from the field and 19.2 percent from distance, The Machine appears to be broken at this time. "I got to make a better friendship with the baskets at the Garden and everything will be OK," Vujacic said. Derek Fisher said recently that he didn't want to shake up the Knicks' solid second unit, so Vujacic is likely to stick in the starting five until Arron Afflalo (hamstring) returns.
Nov 9 - 12:46 PM

Knicks head coach Derek Fisher said that he won't think about changing New York's starting lineup until Arron Afflalo (hamstring) is able to return to the court.

That means it'll be Sasha Vujacic as New York’s starting shooting guard for the foreseeable future, although with averages of just 5.8 points, 3.0 assists and 1.3 steals per game on 29.0 percent shooting, Sasha isn't worth owning in almost any league.
Nov 3 - 4:12 PM

Sasha Vujacic hit just 1-of-7 shots for two points, four rebounds and three assists over 20 minutes against the Spurs on Monday.

Vujacic might have gotten some attention in deep leagues for his starting role and the Knicks' four-game week. As you can see he needs to go on a prolonged hot streak before owners should take him seriously in most formats.
Nov 2 - 11:16 PM

Sasha Vujacic had 11 points, six rebounds, three assists, four steals and zero turnovers as a fill-in starter on Wednesday, hitting 4-of-6 shots with one 3-pointer in 29 minutes.

The Machine started because Arron Afflalo is out with a hamstring injury, and Afflalo has suggested that he might need another week or two to fully recover. Tonight's line is quite encouraging, but even with a starting job gifted to him Vujacic isn't an exciting play in DFS or standard leagues.

Sasha Vujacic will start at shooting guard on Wednesday against the Bucks.

Arron Afllalo (hamstring) isn't in a hurry to come back, so Vujacic has a small window to emerge as a 3-point specialist in very deep leagues. Jose Calerdon, Carmelo Anthony, Kristaps Porzingis and Robin Lopez will also start on Wednesday.
Oct 28 - 12:28 PM

Sasha Vujacic started at SG on Wednesday and had nine points, five rebounds, three assists and one turnover in 20 minutes of action.

Vujacic's familiarity with the triangle offense makes him a favorite of Derek Fisher and Phil Jackson, but he's expected to shift to a bench role once Arron Afflalo (hamstring) is healthy.
Oct 7 - 10:23 PM

Sasha Vujacic will start at shooting guard for the Knicks' preseason game on Wednesday.

Arron Afflalo recovering from a hamstring injury, so Vujacic will get the call tonight as he's proficient in the triangle offense. Perhaps Sasha can establish himself as a 3-point specialist in deep leagues, but he's not making a blip on the radar in standard formats.
Oct 7 - 5:55 PM

Sasha Vujacic said that he is open to helping players learn the triangle offense.

"Of course, of course. I was always someone that helped players on the court. We have a lot of rookies and a lot of younger players –- I still consider myself young by the way -– so we have a great mix of guys and I’m looking forward to teaching them and giving them help," Vujacic said. "I don’t want to be a teacher because we have a coach that will lead us towards something [but] if there’s going to be anything needed for me to show or do I’ll be more than happy to do so." Phil Jackson previously said that Vujacic will be a "significant force" off the bench this season, but he isn't on the radar in standard leagues.

Phil Jackson said Sasha Vujacic will be a "significant force" for the Knicks off the bench.

"The bonus is that, having played for me in L.A., Sasha knows the triangle and can help our off-guards get the hang of playing on top of the floor," Jackson said. Vujacic is likely already ahead of Cleanthony Early, but the Knicks are likely going to try and play Jerian Grant right off the bat. Sasha is only a target in deep leagues.
Aug 24 - 3:19 PM

Kristaps Porzingis is excited that Sasha Vujacic has joined the Knicks and said that he was a "cold-blooded shooter."

"I played against him,’’ Porzingis said. "Very experienced. He’s a cold-blooded shooter. He doesn’t care. He loves the pressure. He’s great. Those situations will help the team in those important moments. For me, it will be great having him. His experience and being European, he can teach me a lot on how hard he works. He’s a hard worker." Vujacic has shot 37.1 percent from beyond the arc during his NBA career, but he will have a tough time getting enough minutes to matter in most leagues.
Aug 9 - 9:28 AM

The Knicks announced on Friday that they have officially signed Sasha Vujacic.

He will be competing for limited minutes off the bench with Langston Galloway, Cleanthony Early and Lance Thomas, so there isn't a lot to like from a fantasy perspective. Vujacic can be ignored on draft day.
Aug 8 - 10:24 AM

Sasha Vujacic will get a guaranteed one-year, $1.35 million contract with the Knicks.

The deal was originally thought to be a training camp agreement, but it looks like Vujacic will be spending the entire season in New York. The deal is expected to be finalized soon, so we will update this story when it becomes official. The sharpshooter likely won't have more than a limited role off the bench, so he can be ignored in fantasy leagues.

The Knicks have reached agreement on a one-year deal with Sasha Vujacic.

The Knicks have been in discussion with the eight-year veteran and they'll have him in camp. He played just 10 minutes with the Clippers in the 2013-14 season and was with the Nets back in 2011. He won't be in the rotation.
