If Shannon Brown Departs, Who Can the Lakers Replace Him With?

Sasha Vujacic – N.J. Nets – Unrestricted – $5.5 million
I’m sure 90% of Lakers Nation would be mortified about the idea of Vujacic suiting up in the purple and gold, but he is worth a look. Vujacic, as bad as his shot looked at times, can shoot the stand-still three very well. Remember, the offense that Brown runs requires a guy who can spot up in the corner or on the wing and knock down shots, and I think Vujacic can take care of that. Some other positives, Vujacic is familiar with what it means to be a Laker, and what it takes to win championships, don’t forget his two free-throws that iced game 7 against Boston. He also brings a defensive intensity, maybe overzealous at times, that the Lakers lacked in the playoffs this past year. Wherever Vujacic signs, he will be taking a very significant pay cut.
