Those who adore “The Machine” might be in for a heartbreaker. Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski confirms that the Lakers, Nets, and Rockets have agreed in principle to a trade that will send the long time Lakers guard to New Jersey.
The details still remain a bit gray; salaries don’t completely add up yet — but the reported trade will swap Vujacic for 35-year-old NBA veteran, Joe Smith. Houston is reported to be receiving Nets’ guard, Terrence Williams; New Jersey will receive Vujacic and a (Lakers) first-round draft pick.
The deal can’t be finalized until Wednesday, December 15th; because Joe Smith was a free agent signing.
Sasha Vujacic is owed $5.5 million this season. With his minimized role, the Lakers have been eager to trade him for some time now.
