New Jersey Nets guard Sasha Vujacic has signed with a Turkish team for next season.

Anadolu Efes said Friday the 27-year old Slovenian guard agreed to a one-year deal with an optional second year. It did not say whether Vujacic has an option to return to New Jersey if the NBA lockout is lifted.

Vujacic averaged 11.4 points in 56 games last season for the Nets. He joined the Nets in a three-team deal in December from the Los Angeles Laker. He played there for six seasons, winning two NBA titles.

With the next NBA season threatened by the lockout, Turkish club Besiktas has previously said it is close to signing Nets All-Star guard Deron Williams. Nets' draft pick Bojan Bogdanovic signed with Fenerbahce of the Turkish League in June.

Istanbul-based Efes has won 13 national titles.
