Vujacic to Houston?

Here's a fun rumor from Lakers Nation: Sasha Vujacic may have been offered a 5-year, $30 million contract. That is, I think, the max mid-level exception contract that can be offered. Were it true, you'd have to think the Lakers would let him go and go after Brent Barry or James Posey, as today's L.A. Times reports that those two guys are on Mitch Kupchak's list for backup plans. Vujacic is a nice player, but $6 million is a lot of money, especially over five years. Even that amount over three years wouldn't be so bad, although obviously you'd prefer something like $4 million for three years or so. Anyway, as Lakers Nation notes, it's just an unsourced rumor, so let's not get too crazy at this point.
