Grizzlies interested in Vujacic?

http://www.sbnation.com/nba/2013/1/22/3 ... ha-vujacic

if theres even any truth to this at all, supposedly, his team in turkey arent gonna let him go, but this made me wonder why LA couldnt look into giving sasha another shot. a 6' 7" g/f that can shoot the 3 and play pesky D would have been perfect with the starting 5 or off the bench.

In other rumors, the lakers are supposedly looking to boobie gibson from CLE, though, we have nothing to offer.

No thanks. He was never able to put the ball in the basket outside of one fluke season, and his defense, while pesky, won't be all that helpful. We need more than pesky man defenders and guys that only hit shots in practice.

I can see it now...

*Kobe is practicing free throws*

Kobe: That's right. 1. That's right. 2. That's right.

*Gym door opens and in walks Sasha Vujejackcic (lol wtf is the spelling of his name). Kobe doesn't turn around*

Kobe: What are you doing here? *hits free throw*

Vujejic: You never called.

Kobe: ... *hits free throw*

Vujakdin: I said...you never called.

Kobe: I KNOW WHAT YOU SAID...then you came back.

Vujenic: I had to.

*Kobe turns around and the two high five each other*

*The camera zooms into a dark office high above the court. All we see is a shadowy figure. When he leaves, the camera zooms down onto something on the table...*

A BROKEN SUPERMAN PENANT.

I trusted his outside shot over anyone on our team not named Kobe or Nash. I thought about having him back, but the rules don't allow him to be bought out this late into the season. He can return next year though.

Memphis only did those deals to emulate OKC. They're gonna miss Speights size.

They got Arthur back. That guy plays much better with both Marc and Zach, than Speights who plays solely off Zach. Arthur will get a minute uptick which is all that matters

They also don't have to give up Zach or Gay so its a win all around. Arthur gets more time, they get to keep their starting Fs, and they can easily throw out the vet min to fill those 3 spots which they have done in Delonte, Sasha, and Bill to backup their starting perimeter. They could even somehow found a spot for Kenyon probably if it came down to it
