After playing in the NBA for the previous seven seasons, Sasha Vujacic signed a deal with Turkish team Anadolu Efes Istanbul during the NBA lockout. Although his contract keeps him overseas for this season, Vujacic intends to return to the NBA next year, he tells Kosarka.si (Slovenian link, via Sportando).
According to Sportando's translation of Vujacic's comments, the longtime Laker said, "I am happy and satisfied with my experience in Turkey, but my wish is to go back to the NBA next season."
Vujacic, 28, has played in 476 NBA games for the Lakers and Nets, averaging 5.6 points in 15.9 minutes per game over the course of his career. The former first-round pick will be an unrestricted free agent for NBA teams when his contract in Turkey expires.
