L.A. Times: Sasha Vujacic, the reserve guard nicknamed “The Machine” because of his proclivity for cranking up shots, is, like Ronny Turiaf, a restricted free agent.
Vujacic has yet to come back to the Lakers with an offer sheet and, in recent days, General Manager Mitch Kupchak has been negotiating with Rob Pelinka, Vujacic’s agent, about a new contract.
“I’m optimistic that we can re-sign Sasha,” Kobe Bryant said. “We definitely should. He’s turned into a fantastic player for us and I would hate to see us lose two of our key guys off the bench.”
Bryant’s optimism may be bolstered by more than just hope since he and Vujacic have the same agent.
