Trans. Jul 15 2:10 ET (Jul 15 2:10 ET ) New Jersey Nets guard Sasha Vujacic has agreed to a one-year contract with a team based in Istanbul, Turkey.

New Jersey Nets guard Sasha Vujacic has signed with a Turkish team for next season. Anadolu Efes said Friday the 27-year old Slovenian guard agreed to a one-year deal with an optional second year. It did not say whether Vujacic has an option to return to New Jersey if the NBA lockout is lifted. Vujacic averaged 11.4 points in 56 games last season for the Nets.
Sasha Vujacic came off the bench to add 15 points, seven boards, four assists and three steals in a 103-95 upset of the Jazz.
Vujacic logged 30 minutes, the fourth time in five games he's played at least that long. He's scored at least 13 points in seven of his past outings, and he's now averaging 14.3 points this month.
Sasha Vujacic was the second option, supposed to get the ball if the New Jersey Nets couldn't get it to Brook Lopez. That's exactly what happened, so who cares that it wasn't exactly how the Nets planned it? Vujacic made the tiebreaking basket with 5.3 seconds left, and the Nets snapped their five-game losing streak with a 96-94 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday night.
Sasha Vujacic (hamstring) is probable for Monday's game, according to Al Iannazzone.
Vujacic suffered a minor hamstring injury recently, but he'll likely give it a go against the Magic. He's been a nice player off the bench for the Nets, though his value will drop when Anthony Morrow returns.

Knicks crush Nets in 1st meeting this season (The Associated Press) (9 Hours Ago | courtesy: The Associated Press) The Knicks resembled the division champions of a season ago rather than the biggest losers in New York, outplaying and even outtalking the Brooklyn Nets, who look like the real Big Apple busts. Carmelo Anthony had 19 points and 10 rebounds, Iman Shumpert scored a season-high 17 points, and the Knicks ended a nine-game losing streak with 113-83 romp Thursday night in the first meeting of the season between the city rivals. ''It showed from the tipoff.'' The Knicks (4-13) snapped a tie with the Nets (5-14) for most losses in New York, winning the game and the crowd with a dominant second half that had Spike Lee and the rest of the fans wearing blue and orange cheering perhaps the Knicks' most complete performance of the season. Andrea Bargnani scored 16 before he was ejected in the fourth quarter, Knicks fans roaring in support of him standing up to Kevin Garnett. More...
