In the 2002 NBA Draft, Vujanić was selected with the 36th overall pick, by the New York Knicks, but later, his draft rights were traded to the Phoenix Suns.[1] However, he decided to stay with Partizan for one more season,[2] and he was the top scorer of the EuroLeague's 2002–03 season, averaging 25.8 points per game. In the summer of 2003, he moved to the Italian League, and signed a three-year deal with Skipper Bologna.
