Tomas Satoransky is leaving the Washington Wizards and closing on a deal with Barcelona

By Antigoni Zachari /

Washington Wizards guard Tomas Satoransky is leaving the NBA and closing on a deal to return to Barcelona, according to Eurohoops’ Aris Barkas.

Satoransky, 30, signed a deal with the Wizards on February 28 for the remainder of the season and has been exploring his options after the end of the 2021-22 NBA season. EuroLeague champions Anadolu Efes have been a reported suitor for the Czech guard, though ultimately his wish is to play again for the Spanish club and that has been taken into account.

His connection with fellow Czech NT teammate Jan Vesely, and the latter’s reported move to Barcelona as a replacement for Brandon Davies, also plays a role in Satoransky’s decision. It should be noted that in theory, Fenerbahce could make a push to keep Vesely on board with a contract extension.

For the moment, the negotiations between Satoransky and Barcelona are near the end, though there’s no final deal in place yet.

Satoransky spent the 2021-22 season between the New Orleans Pelicans, San Antonio Spurs, and the Wizards, averaging 3.6 points, 3.3 assists, and 2.3 rebounds in 10.2 minutes across 55 games.

Barcelona’s interest to bring back Satoransky was first reported by the Home of Glory.
