Sasha Vujacic to Sign With Knicks, per Report

Sasha Vujacic played a key reserve role for some very good Los Angeles Lakers teams under Phil Jackson last decade, and now Jackson is bringing Vujacic in to be a part of his new team:

The deal is for the veteran’s minimum.

Vujacic’s best season was in 2007-08 with the Lakers when they ultimately lost to the Boston Celtics in the NBA Finals. The guard averaged 8.8 points that year and shot 43.7 percent from three. He played smaller roles on the Lakers’ back-to-back title teams the following two seasons.

Vujacic last played significant minutes in the NBA in 2010-11, appearing in 56 games with the New Jersey Nets. He averaged a career-high 11.4 points and shot 36.9 percent from three.

Since that season, the 31-year-old has played just 10 total NBA minutes, and those came in 2013-14 with the Los Angeles Clippers. There are serious doubts about whether Vujacic can even play anymore, but Jackson likely signed him because of familiarity and knowledge of the Triangle offense.

The Knicks are also expected to sign Thanasis Antetokounmpo after waiving Ricky Ledo, per Marc Berman of the New York Post.
