Vladimir Radmanovic


2012-13 salary: $854,389 | Age: 32 | Season stats: 1.3 ppg, 1.1 rpg

Season recap: Not much to recap -- Radmanovic barely played all season. He was brought in to fill the role that Brian Scalabrine played for the Bulls the past two years as the last guy on the bench, but Radmanovic didn't even play as much as Scalabrine.

Season highlight: Radmanovic went 3-for-3 from beyond the arc in a blowout loss to the Miami Heat in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.

Season lowlight: Radmanovic only played 19:09 combined in December and January.

Final grades: Regular season: D Postseason: Inc.

Notes: Radmanovic may be best remembered for giving teammate Marco Belinelli a hard time for staying a few minutes later in the locker room to speak to reporters after a good game. Radmanovic was always one of the first guys ready to leave after a game ended.

Quotes: "Vlad, his back is a problem," said coach Tom Thibodeau late in April in reference to Radmanovic's late season back problems.

What's next?: The Bulls will try to use his roster spot on somebody Thibodeau may actually use in a game.
