Wizards prospect Tomas Satoransky has agreed to a deal with FC Barcelona in the Spanish league.
Satoransky already declined to play for the Wizards during the Las Vegas Summer League, and his deal with Barcelona is likely more lucrative than any rookie-scale deal he'd earn in the NBA. The 22-year-old Satoransky may surface in the NBA some day, but he's off the radar for the 2014-15 season. Jun 24 - 3:25 PM

Contrary to previous reports, Wizards prospect Tomas Satoransky is not interested in playing in the Las Vegas Summer League.

"I already played for them in Summer League [last year]," he said. "Another Summer League would do close to nothing for my individual improvement." He's likely to earn more money on a multi-year contract in Europe than he would in the NBA, so the 22-year-old's reluctance is understandable, but he left the door open for future summers. "Provided that, in the future, some other NBA team would want me to play [in the Summer League] for them, maybe I’d think about it," he said, "but that’s hypothetically speaking."

Wizards prospect Tomas Satoransky will join Washington's summer league team in Las Vegas this July.

Satoransky, a 6'7" shooting guard, was drafted in 2012 but he's since played in the Czech Republic and Spain, and it's unclear whether he might come to the NBA for the 2014-15 season. He's coming off a fine campaign in Spain's ACB league, averaging 12.5 points, 3.8 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 1.5 steals in 30 minutes per game, while shooting 38.2 percent beyond the arc.

Toma s Satoransky may or may not join the Wizards for the 2013/14 season.

GM Ernie Grunfeld was rather non-committal when asked about Satoransky. "We’re in contact with him at all times. He has a contractual situation that he’s dealing with right now," Grunfeld said. "We’ll see how that gets resolved and it should get resolved within the next couple of weeks with his representatives over there and after that, we’ll get a better feel." Satoransky's future in Washington is a major question mark.

Wizards second-round pick Tomas Satoransky said that he's not ready to play in the NBA yet.

Hat tip to HoopsHype for the translation. "Physically, I'm still not ready to play in the NBA," he said. Satoransky will remain in Europe next season, so the earliest we'll see him in a Wizards uniform is for the 2013-14 season.

2012 second-round pick Tomas Satoransky will remain in Europe next season.

This was the plan all along, so this is really just confirmation of that blueprint. Satoransky reportedly "would have needed a spectacular performance to change the original plan," so it's not a surprise that he won't be in a Wizards uniform next year. Satoransky did say that he would like to play for the Wizards "as soon as possible."

Second-round draft pick Tomas Satoransky wants to skip summer league so he can train with the Czech national team.

Some are making a big deal about this, but the Wizards had planned for Satoransky to remain abroad next season anyway. Regardless of whether or not he participates in summer league, it shouldn't impact his future with the team.

Wizards draft pick Tomas Satoransky is expected to remain in Europe next season.

Washington plans to stash Satoransky abroad but he will be playing in the Las Vegas summer league. At 6'7", Satorasnky presents an intriguing skillset given that he can handle the ball.

The Wizards selected Czech guard Tomas Satoransky with the 32nd pick of the draft.

He has legitimate point guard skills and good size at 6'7" and will try to latch on as a backup PG in Washington. He worked out for the Wizards and they must have like what they saw.

Updating a previous report, Czech guard Tomas Satoransky will remain in the 2012 NBA Draft.

Satoransky stands 6'7" but has legitimate PG skills, and Yahoo! reports that he's "moved up [draft] charts into early 2nd range."

Czech guard Tomas Satoransky is "leaning toward staying in (the draft)."

Satoransky has worked out for the Wizards and Cavs, and he also said that he isn't rushing into his decision. Satoransky has two seasons remaining on his contract in the Spanish League, but both years are option years, and that increases his flexibility in terms of when he'll enter the NBA.
