32-year-old Vladimir Radmanovic is set to retire from the NBA, according to reports out of his native Serbia.

Throughout his twelve years in the league, Radmanovic spent five seasons with the Seattle Supersonics, three seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers and had short stints with the Los Angeles Clippers, Charlotte Bobcats, Golden State Warriors, Atlanta Hawks and Chicago Bulls.

While with the Lakers, Radmanovic was involved in a snowboarding injury, separating his shoulder. His Laker’s contract banned all activities with high risk of injury, including skiing and snowboarding. He was fined $500,000.

As a member of the Lakers, he served a vital role on the team. In 2008, he started all 21 games of Los Angeles’s postseason run. The forward’s strongest season, however, came in 2003. He averaged 12 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1 steal. He holds career averages of 8 points and 3 rebounds while shooting 41.5 percent from the field.
