Professional career[edit]

Vujanić started his professional career with Crvena zvezda in 1999. After two seasons at the club, he signed with Partizan in the summer of 2001. In the 2002 NBA Draft, Vujanić was selected with the 36th 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 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.

With the Yugoslav national team, Vujanić won the gold medal at the 2002 FIBA World Championship in Indianapolis. He was also a member of the Serbia and Montenegro national team at the EuroBasket 2003, and at the 2004 Summer Olympics.
