I know, this one caught me by surprise too. But Vlad Radmanovic is apparently thrilled to be in Charlotte.
Not so much for the cities’ southern comforts, but for the chance to get out from under Phil Jackson’s thumb it seems.
“Here I’ll do what I do best. Being a Laker was a great experience, but it was also frustrating not knowing when and how I’d play,” Radmanovic told the Charlotte Observer on Sunday.
“Phil’s system, great as it is, doesn’t give a role player much opportunity. For Kobe Bryant, it’s great. For Paul Gasol, it’s great. But role players don’t do much.”
