The Wizards added several new faces this offseason. Picking the most interesting of the new guys is probably somewhat of an eye of the beholder scenario. I woud pick Tomas Satoransky.
Center Ian Mahinmi is now the second-highest paid player on the team and the man tasked with improving their big man stats. Point guard Trey Burke is a former college basketball National Player of the Year. Andrew Nicholson's athleticism and perimeter game could make him an ideal compliment to starting forward power forward Markieff Morris.
They are interesting, as are some of the other players, including Satoransky. When I think of intriguing new additions, the 6-foot-7 guard tops the list.
Part of the interest is pure mystery. Washington's second round pick in 2012 is from the Czech Republic and spent the past four seasons playing overseas. Now Satoransky brings his high-flying and pass-happy ways stateside after agreeing to a multi-year deal. Considering Bradley Beal's injury history and John Wall's current recovery from two knee surgeries. the Wizards need Satoransky to step in quickly.
Sounds like he's ready for the opportunity.

Training camp is rumored to tip off September 27. Satoransky will be there. The intrigue will as well.
