L.A. Times: “Sasha had a little run-in with our coaches in a game in Oklahoma and he hasn’t atoned himself yet for that error,” Jackson said Wednesday night. “He knows how to get himself out of it. When he does, he’ll be back in good graces.”
When asked how Vujacic can do that, Jackson pointed back to the beginning of the season.
“There was a promise he made to us before the season that he hasn’t fulfilled,” Jackson said.
Vujacic said before the season that if he talked back to the coaches, he would buy them dinner.
When Vujacic was approached and asked about Jackson’s comments, he wasn’t contrite. He said it was “nothing unusual” to argue with assistant coaches.
“All season I haven’t been getting much playing time,” Vujacic said. “It’s OK. Coach has his rotation. At least now I know what my role is. He said the reason we had the talk, he told me what my role is and now I understand what my role is. I was trying to find out all season long. But now I know.”
