Vladimir Radmanović ( Cyrillic Владимир "Радман" Радмановић ; * on November 19, 1980 in Trebinje , SR Bosnia and Herzegovina , SFR Yugoslavia ) is a former Serbian basketball player who was active for most of his career in the North American professional league NBA .

His parents come from Zadar in Dalmatia , but Radmanović himself is an ethnic Serb.

NBA career

Radmanović was selected twelfth in the 2001 NBA Draft by the Seattle SuperSonics . After a good debut season, he was appointed to the NBA All-Rookie Second Team at the end of the season . The forward played for the Sonics until early 2006.

In February 2006, the Sonics transferred Radmanović in exchange for Chris Wilcox to the Los Angeles Clippers . After a short time with the Californians, the Serb moved to the city rivals of the Clippers, the Los Angeles Lakers .

At the Lakers, his performance initially decreased, but Radmanović managed to get back into the starting five of the Lakers in the 2007/08 NBA season . In the same season he reached the NBA Finals with the Lakers, where the Boston Celtics lost 4-2.

For the next season 2008/09 Radmanović was again scheduled for the starting line-up of the Lakers and was allowed to play the first 28 games of the season from the start.

Since Lakers coach Phil Jackson put on defense and Radmanović had deficits in this area, he lost his place to small forward Luke Walton . Radmanović got less playing time and sat out several games completely, also because coach Jackson preferred the young Trevor Ariza as a backup.

In February 2009 Radmanović was transferred to the Charlotte Bobcats in exchange for Adam Morrison and Shannon Brown . He only played eight games in the jersey of the Bobcats before they handed him over to the Golden State Warriors in November 2009 . Radmanović played for the Oakland team until the end of the 2010/11 season .

In December 2011, the Serb signed a contract through the end of the season with the Atlanta Hawks . In the 2012/13 season he was active for the Chicago Bulls and was used in 25 games. In October 2013, Radmanović finally announced the end of his career. In around 12 years in the NBA, the Serb was used in 737 games (not counting playoffs) and got an average of 8.0 points, with a three-point rate of 37.8%.
