As players like Amar’e Stoudemire, Monta Ellis, and Marreese Speights work out in front of NBA teams in the hopes getting back in the league, Arash Markazi of The Los Angeles Times reports (via Twitter) that veteran guard Sasha Vujacic is also looking to make an NBA comeback.
According to Markazi, Vujacic has been working out daily in Los Angeles and hopes to play in the NBA next season. The former Lakers and Clippers guard said it would be his dream to play in L.A. again, Markazi adds.
Vujacic, who made his NBA debut with the Lakers in 2004 after being selected 27th in the draft, has appeared in 581 total regular season games, suiting up for the two L.A. teams and both of the New York clubs as well. His most recent NBA stint came in the 2016/17 season, when he appeared in 42 games for the Knicks. The 35-year-old has played in Italy since then.
While Vujacic will seek an NBA contract, his comeback attempt looks like a long shot. He had also been hoping to break back into the league last summer, and worked out for two teams in September, but nothing came of those auditions. Now two full seasons removed from his last NBA appearance, Vujacic is facing increasingly unfavorable odds.
