NBA Point Guard
A coach's son, the 6'7" native of Slovenia has earned the nickname "The Machine" because of his ability to sink several 3-pointers in a row. He usually plays shooting guard within the Lakers' triangle offense.
Vujacic averaged 8.8 points over 72 games on the Lakers' squad that reached the 2008 NBA Finals. He was rewarded that summer with a three-year, $15 million contract.
Vujacic, who was engaged to tennis star Maria Sharapova in 2010, was traded to the New Jersey Nets during the 2010-11 season.
