Vladimir Radmanovic

Forward, #10

 

Radmanovic was acquired by the Lakers as a free agent in 2006, and averaged seven points and three rebounds a game over more than two and a half seasons before being traded to the Charlotte Bobcats in February of 2009.

Lakers Coach Phil Jackson was fond of Radmanovic and called him one of his "favorite sons." He also once referred to him as a "space cadet" for his questionable tendency to take three-pointers early in the shot clock.

The 6-foot-10 forward fibbed about a serious shoulder injury in 2007, initially telling the team he had fallen on a patch of ice in Park City, Utah. He eventually admitted he had suffered the injury while snowboarding during the All-Star break, and was fined $500,000.
