• Satoransky tries to revive his career with an impending return to Washington
  • His career took a different turn when he was traded to New Orleans
  • The Wizards need to make a huge push in remaining regular-season games

The trend of players being bought out of their contract continues, and the latest one is someone who has been already traded twice before the NBA deadline–Tomas Satoransky.

The five-time Czech Player of the Year is reportedly set to make a final stop and re-sign with the original team he started his NBA journey–the Washington Wizards, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported.

The 30-year-old was first traded by the New Orleans Pelicans to the Portland Trail Blazers in that multiplayer trade that included CJ McCollum, reported.

However, the 6-foot-7 guard would then be shipped to the San Antonio Spurs not long after in another three-team trade before the contract buyout was reached last February 26.

Now, he hopes to get his pro hoop career back on track with the Wizards.

Satoransky showed progress from 2016 to 2019 before he was shipped to the Chicago Bulls in July 2019 in a sign-and-trade deal.

It has not been a good season thus far for the former second-round pick as he struggled to perform for the Pelicans.

This season, he has played in 33 games averaging just 2.8 points, 2.3 assists, and two rebounds in just 15 minutes of action.

Such has unsurprisingly contributed to his loss of confidence even though he is a career 35.6% shooter from beyond the arc and also owns a 51.9% shooting clip from the field.

Considering his past stint with the Wizards, Satoranksy could get his career back on track.

In the three seasons he played for Washington, he normed 6.6 points, 3.7 assists, and 2.8 rebounds in 210 games.

Satoransky improved that a bit with the Bulls during the 2019-20 season, but things just spiraled significantly in New Orleans.

By the looks of it, Satoransky will have his work cut out for him as he tries not only to recall his old form but pick up the momentum of continued progress in his career.

The Wizards are at the 11th spot in the Eastern Conference but have a chance to make it to the play-in tournament.

Unless Satoransky or someone else makes a difference, Wizards head coach Wes Unseld Jr. may have to dig deep in his rotation.
