OVERVIEW: Reserve guard Sasha Vujacic spent most of the season looking for his absent shooting touch. It went missing not long after he suffered a sprained ankle during training camp, and he never could find it. Vujacic averaged 5.8 points on 38 percent shooting, down from an average of 8.8 points on 45 percent shooting in 2007-08. He averaged three points on 26 percent shooting in the playoffs, when his playing time dropped from an average of 16 minutes during the regular season to only 11 minutes. The Lakers suggested that Vujacic spend some time away from the gym during the offseason. They thought it would be a good idea for him to clear his head. He plans to play for his native Slovenia in the European Championships in September in Poland.
QUOTEWORTHY: “I make no promises now, but I’m going to do it (improve his overall game next season) on the court.”
STRENGTH: Has the ability to be an above-average perimeter shooter.
WEAKNESS: Seems to be in too much of a hurry to launch his jump shot.
CONTRACT STATUS: Signed through 2010-11.
Finally: Luke Walton.
