Vlade Divac is hopeful to join an NBA front office next season.

He said he's had some conversations with the Kings and added he's aiming to be a general manager one day. Divac did some scouting for the Lakers to learn how management works and also worked for Real Madrid.

Vlade Divac will not face charges for not serving in Serbia and Montenegro's military.

Just a day after his country's president and prime minister had said Divac was in the clear, Belgrade prosecutors reversed their original stance and announced he would not face charges. He is a national hero in his home country and has been asked to run for president. He is popular enough that it is thought he could win the election easily.

Vlade Divac was placed on waivers by the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday.

This will likely be the end of Divac's 16-year career. "If he could play, he would play," Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak said. "Here it is, the first week of training camp, and he can't play." Divac recently said he planned to retire, but wanted to remain with the Lakers as an assistant coach and scout.

Despite reports to the contrary, Vlade Divac is still unsure if he's going to retire or not.

''My guess at this time is he's going to see how his health is and then make his decision,'' Marc Fleisher said. ''I know the Lakers would like to have another big man and have him in camp if he's physically capable of doing it.'' That's true, but Divac is likely beyond the point of having any fantasy value.

Vlade Divac is set to retire and it sounds like he'll be a coach for the Lakers this year.

''It is enough,'' Divac told the Blic daily. ''No, I won't play the next season. I'll work for the Lakers as an assistant coach and an international scout.'' He wants to end up with the Kings when it's all said and done, but it sounds like he'll spend this season with the Lakers.

Vlade Divac says news of his retirement is erroneous, and he'll make a final decision on September 30.

He's probably leaning toward retirement, but the closer we get to the season, the harder it's going to be for him to walk away.

Vlade Divac has announced his retirement from the NBA and Lakers.

His back problem proved to be too much for him to overcome. He was a great fantasy (and real) center in his prime and it's too bad he won't be around to hand the ''big, slow semi-athletic guy with awesome hands'' torch off to Bucks rookie Andrew Bogut this year.

''If [the Lakers] don't [bring me back], I'll retire,'' Vlade Divac said Friday. ''I won't play anywhere else. I don't want to move again. If they want me to come back, I'll come back.''

Divac, 37, won't want to go out on the sour note of this season.

Lakers activated center Vlade Divac from the injured list.

Divac, who underwent back surgery three months ago, will get some minutes at center with Chris Mihm out. It's unlikely he'll play enough to hae any late-season fantasy value.

Vlade Divac scrimmaged yesterday and is planning to return in early April.

No fantasy value here, although he will eat into Chris Mihm's clock when he returns.

Vlade Divac and his sore back will travel with the team this week, but is not ready to play.

He worked out Saturday, but is still running slowly. With the strong play of Chris Mihm, Divac isn't likely to have a lot of value the rest of the way.

Vlade Divac underwent lumbar disk microsurgery to repair a herniated disk in his back yesterday.

Divac will be out 12 weeks. If he can return this season, it won't be until there are just a couple weeks left.
