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. Sep 18 - 11:14 AM

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.

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.
Jul 31 - 2:12 PM

The Knicks reportedly held discussions with Sasha Vujacic.

The eight-year veteran had some success with the Lakers and Nets back in the day, but he hasn't played in an NBA game since the Clippers gave him a 10-day contract during the 2013-14 season. Vujacic has a career scoring average of 5.6 points per game, and he likely wouldn't have more than a limited role with the Knicks. We will let you know if the talks progress.
Jul 30 - 6:11 PM

Sasah Vujacic has signed with Baskonia of the Spanish League.

Vujacic had been hoping for an NBA return, but this news would seem to pour cold water on those hopes. Vujacic is still just 30 years old, but if his eight season NBA run ends here, he'll finish with career averages of 5.6 points, 1.9 rebounds, 1.3 assists, and 1.0 three-pointers per game.

Sasha Vujacic has been working out with Blake Griffin this summer with hopes of making a return to the NBA.

It's possible Vujacic receives some interest from Phil Jackson of the Knicks as he's a team player, and proficient in the triangle offense. However, he would figure to be an end-of-the-bench kind of guy, and he would not hold any fantasy value in a crowded New York backcourt. Stay tuned.

Sasha Vujacic will join Reyer Venezia of the Lega Basket Serie A.

The 30-year-old had been with the Clippers on a 10-day contract this season, but this news will put an end to his NBA prospects for the 2013-14 season. Vujacic only played 10 total minutes with the Clippers and averaged 2.5 points and 1.5 rebounds during that time, so it's very likely his claim to fame going forward might be the fact that he was once engaged to Maria Sharapova rather than as an NBA player.

The Clippers will not re-sign Sasha Vujacic after the expiration of his 10-day contract.

Doc Rivers reportedly wants to sign a big man instead, though that move might be delayed to allow for greater roster flexibility until the trade deadline passes. Vujacic shot 2-of-5 from the field in a total of 10 minutes of action for L.A.

Clippers sign G Sasha Vujacic.

Vujacic will be playing on a 10-day contract and he's unlikely to provide more than occasional 3-pointers off L.A.'s bench. He last played in the NBA for the Lakers and Nets in 2010-11, when he averaged 9.8 points on 40.2 percent shooting.

The Clippers are reportedly close to signing Sasha Vujacic to a 10-day contract.

Vujacic took a physical, and the deal could become official by Tuesday. This move would solely be to add depth to the Clippers backcourt, and it is extremely unlikely Vujacic would have any fantasy impact.

Sasha Vujacic has been working out with the Lakers and is hoping to relaunch his NBA career.

He was in the gym last week and the talk of Sasha coming back to play stateside has been ongoing for over two months. Vujacic spent seven years with the Lakers, but his minutes per game decreased in each of the last four. While he has a shot to be part of the 20 players invited to training camp, he's unlikely to make an impact during the regular season.
Mon, Sep 16, 2013 09:11:00 AM

Sasha Vujacic intends to play in the NBA next season, and he would reportedly prefer to sign with the Lakers.

Vujacic played in Turkey alongside Jordan Farmar last season but both players are now eyeing a return to the NBA. The Grizzlies looked into signing 'The Machine' last February, but they were unable to get him out of his contract in Turkey and it's unknown whether they still have interest.
