Sasha Vujacic tries out for Pelicans after a year overseas
It’s been a year since Sasha Vujacic was in the NBA, but the longtime shooting guard was reportedly in Louisiana for a tryout with the New Orleans Pelicans, according to Andrew Lopez of the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
Vujacic last played with the New York Knicks in 2016-17, heading to Italy at the end of the season after a fairly dry market didn’t help his potential return to the league.
The 3-point specialist recently asked for restaurant suggestions in the Big Easy, quickly getting a couple of them from a timely follower.
Hey. I’m in New Orleans.
Does anybody know a good lunch spot in the French Quarter? #nekotoodgorevidisve

Vujacic, 34, could provide the long-range aid that the Pelicans have so sorely needed during the past couple of seasons, finishing in the bottom half in made threes during the past three years.
The Pelicans have already taken a gamble with big man Jahlil Okafor, and could potentially take another with Vujacic with an Exhibit 10 contract if they feel he merits it.
