Clippers to sign Sasha Vujacic to 10-day contract, according to report

Clive Mason

The Los Angeles Clippers are ready to sign veteran guard Sasha Vujacic, who last played with the New Jersey Nets.

Seeking even greater depth in their backcourt, the Los Angeles Clippers are in the process of signing veteran guard Sasha Vujacic to a 10-day contract, reports the Los Angeles Times' Brad Turner.

Vujacic is expected to meet the Clippers in Denver for a Monday night game against the Nuggets.

Vujacic has been playing in the Turkish league for the last few seasons and was last on a New Jersey Nets team that finished 24-58 by the end of the 2010-11 season. He averaged 11.4 points, 2.3 assists and 3.3 rebounds per game that year, his most productive.

The Slovenian is most well-known for his six-plus seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers, where he earned the nickname "The Machine" while coming off the bench from 2004-2011.

Now, Vujacic joins Doc Rivers' team, which is hoping point guard Chris Paul can return from a shoulder injury in the next few weeks and before the All-Star game. Where Vujacic fits in remains unclear with Darren Collison, Jared Dudley, J.J. Redick, Willie Green and Jamal Crawford eating up so much time in the backcourt.
