Wizards pick Satoransky is honest, says he’s not ready for NBA


I like the Wizards pick of Tomas Satoransky in the second round. The young Czech combo guard showed very well at the adidas EuroCamp then had some nice performances at the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas — he made good plays at the point and looked a little more athletic than had been rumored.

He has potential but needs some seasoning.

And he admits that, saying in an interview with a Spanish publication that he is not yet ready for the NBA. Here is the quote, with the translation via Hoopshype.

“Physically I’m still not ready to play in the NBA.”

He plans to spend another year playing in Spain and getting stronger before coming to the NBA. It’s an understandable adjustment — the depth and quality of athleticism steps up from Europe to the NBA and that takes some strength of your own and getting used to.

But what I saw in Summer League is a guy who could play in the NBA in a few years. Wizards’ fans just need to be patient.
