There have been rumblings for quite some time that the Los Angeles Clippers could be interested in former Los Angeles Lakers guard Sasha Vujacic, but more than four months after Vujacic publicly stated his desire to return to the NBA, he has reportedly found a landing spot.
According to sources, Clippers will sign Sasha Vujacic to a 10-day contract Monday.

Multiple outlets, including Dan Woike above, are reporting that Vujacic will sign a 10-day with the Clippers on Monday. The 29-year-old swingman hasn’t played a minute in the NBA since the 2010-11 season with the Lakers and Nets, and since then, he’s toiled in various professional stops, including a stint in the Turkish league.
Ironically, Vujacic’s last season in the NBA was, by far, his best. In his 56 games with the then New Jersey Nets that season, he averaged 11.4 points per game and shot nearly 37% from beyond the 3-point arc in route to a very respectable 12.35 PER. Shooting is easily his biggest asset to a contending team like the Clips, but fit concerns are very real, especially since JJ Redick has returned successfully from a long-term injury.
No one really knows what Vujacic has in the tank, but this is a no-risk gamble for Doc Rivers and company.
