Daily Link: What’s Next for The Machine?

Sasha Vujacic may have played his last game in Newark as a member of the Nets. Since being acquired from the Lakers, Sasha has been solid, averaging 11.2 points in 54 games, primarily as a sparkplug off the bench. Colin Stephenson talks about his future:

“I really don’t know,’’ Vujacic said when asked if he wants to return to the Nets. “I’ll talk with you about that after the last game. But definitely, from Day One, everybody accepted me, from the organization, to coaches to teammates. So I feel great and I felt welcomed. So I like it here. I like it a lot. The ownership, Mikhail Prokhorov, and (GM) Billy King, coach (Avery Johnson), everybody has that global vision of the team going somewhere and winning the championship and all I want to do is to win championships.’’

As I just said, Sasha has been solid and it’s nice to see that the Nets got at least some NBA talent in return for Terrence Williams. But The Machine still suffers from the issues that plagued him in Los Angeles. Most notably shot selection, as in, he shoots too much. It was a fun little run, but this is not the kind of player I would invest in next season. Take the cap room and move on.
