Satoransky is a 6-foot-7 guard from the Czech Republic, from where Wizards forward Jan Vesely also hails. Vesely was Washington’s sixth overall selection in last year’s draft.
Born in Prague, Satoransky played the last three seasons with Cajasol Sevilla of the top-level Spanish ACB. He averaged 4.9 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game, and he remains under contract in Europe, although he has options for each of his final two years with Cajasol Sevilla.
With that in mind, Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld said in all likelihood Satoransky would remain in Europe to develop his game and ideally join Washington in a few years.
“This is a very good prospect we’re talking about,” Grunfeld said. “A prospect for down the road, and he’s playing in the highest league in Europe, and we hope he develops and plays instead of just sitting on the bench and not getting any playing time.”
