Lakers Nuggets BasketballDaily News: Is there a place for Sasha Vujacic in the Lakers’ rotation?

So far, there seems to be only a limited one as a backup guard.

What’s more, it has been diminished greatly since last season or from 2007-08.

Vujacic’s line from the Lakers’ victory Tuesday over the New York Knicks was fairly typical this season: Zero points on 0-for-3 shooting in 8 minutes, 17 seconds.

Matchups in recent games have dictated Vujacic’s playing time.

“With the type of guard corps we have, with the type of bench we have, a lot of it is about who is going to match up well, and the type of game that is being played against us,” Lakers coach Phil Jackson said when asked about Vujacic’s role.

Certainly, it would have been difficult to play the 6-foot-7 Vujacic against New York’s Chris Duhon or Nate Robinson, two small and speedy guards. Vujacic also would have been hard-pressed to keep pace with Larry Hughes, who is listed at 6-foot-5.

“We’ve played a lot of games against teams with smaller guards,” Vujacic said. “I don’t know how it’s going to be in the next few games, but I’ve got to stay ready.”

    He might have the same faith as Vladimir Radmanivic. Which is that his situation is that the Lakers are paying him a lot of money and he’s hardly getting any playing time. Lakers might trade him away for someone else or for some salary cap purposes.

    If he doesn’t turn into the machine soon … we might see him leave before February.

      I hope so,
      I lost faith on him long time ago. He is just not motivate.
      I guess too much money plus Sharapova is taking all his attention. F•ck him, lucky bastard! :-)

  • desecrator93

    Just listen to G-Small’s podcast and he’ll tell you everything you need to know about Vujabrick

  • Lakers 24 7

    I see Vujacic getting traded mid-season for a draft pick…kinda like Mihm was traded for a draft pick..or maybe we can trade Vujacic and get a steal like we did with Shannon Brown. These euro players depend on the 3 point shot too much, and as you know, the 3 point shot is the hardest and when your shot isn’t on, you’re worthless. We need more energy, hustle type players.

    • Lakers 24 7

      Although Vujacic does have that pesky-type defense…

      • http://lakersnation.com Aaron2416377
