Tomas Satoransky Excited To Join Kristaps Porzingis, Wizards

It hasn’t been an easy go of things for Tomas Satoransky since being traded by the Wizards in 2019.Tomas Satoransky

He has spent time with the Bulls, a team with which he had at least a little success. He has been traded to the Pelicans, a team with which he received very little run. He was traded to the Trail Blazers and then the Spurs, in February alone.

Finally, the Spurs just decided to waive the 6-foot-7 combo guard after one appearance over the weekend, clearing his way for return to where it all began.

“I like the game the Wizards play this year, I already told them at the beginning of the year when we were playing against them, that I love the game they play,” Satoransky said, via Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington. “Very unselfish group of guys, an international group of guys that know how to play. They play hard. I felt like I could help in that sense.”

Satoransky, 30, will be part of a backcourt rotation that includes Raul Neto and the rejuvenated Ish Smith, another former Wizard who made his way back to DC.

One player who is missing from the backcourt — no less than star shooting guard Bradley Beal, out for the year with a wrist injury. But forward Kyle Kuzma and shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope remain, and new acquisition Kristaps Porzingis is about to join the lineup, too.

“I was also excited that Kristaps is on the team because Kristaps is my good friend from the past. I played with him for three years, 10-11 years ago,” Satoransky said. “Imagine that, it’s really crazy. I always wished that I could play with him again. This chance is pretty awesome to have.”

Old team, new opportunity. Both Satoransky and the Wizards appear to be thankful it’s happening.
