2021 Fantasy Outlook
After two seasons in Chicago, Satoransky was shipped to New Orleans over the summer as part of the Lonzo Ball sign-and-trade. He'll join Devonte' Graham, Nickeil Alexander-Walker, Garrett Temple and Kira Lewis in a crowded Pelicans' backcourt that may be difficult to get a read on. Realistically, all five players could compete for a starting spot under new head coach Willie Green, though Satoransky's ability to play both guard positions is a notch in his favor. Regardless of whether he starts or comes off the bench, if Satoransky can lock in 25-plus minutes per night, he could return low-end value in standard leagues. Two seasons ago, Satoransky finished inside the top 110 in eight-category leagues behind 9.9 points, 3.9 rebounds, 5.4 assists and 1.2 steals in 28.9 minutes per game. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Tomas Satoransky was born in 1991 in Prague, Czech Republic. He started his pro career in 2007 with HSK Praha of the Czech Republic National Basketball League. Two seasons later, Satoransky began a five-year stint at CB Sevilla in Spain's top division, ACB. He would eventually sign with FC Barcelona and ended up staying there for two years before jumping to the NBA in 2016. Satoransky has represented his country at every age level, including the 2019 FIBA World Cup. He spends part of the offseason running a kids basketball camp in his native country. You can follow Satoransky on Twitter (@satoransky) and Instagram (@tomasatoransky). Prior to coming to the NBA, Satoransky moved his way through the ranks of a variety of European leagues. As a 14-year-old in 2007, he played for USK Praha in the Czech National Basketball League, which is the highest level of competition in the Czech Republic. Despite being very young, the guard played significant minutes and provided 9.6 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game. After two seasons with Praha, he moved to CB Sevilla of the Spanish ACB League. He matured through five seasons and provided 12.1 points, 3.8 rebounds and 3.8 assists in his final year. Satoransky helped the team play in the 2010-11 Eurocup final where the team lost to Unics Kazan. His final stop in his European tour was with FC Barcelona, where he played for two seasons. The 6-foot-7 guard averaged 10.7 points and hit 43.9 percent of his three-pointers in 2015-16. Satoransky has also represented the Czech Republic in FIBA international competition since 2006. He helped his squad finish seventh in the 2015 EuroBasket by averaging 14.1 points, 7.3 assists and 5.2 rebounds per contest.

Dropped from rotation
GNew Orleans Pelicans
January 14, 2022
Satoransky (coach's decision) went unused off the bench Thursday in the Pelicans' 113-89 win over the Clippers.
ANALYSIS
Though Satoransky cleared the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocols Monday, the 30-year-old hasn't played in either of the Pelicans' last two games. With the Pelicans sitting at 16-26 on the season and unlikely to make a deep playoff run should they earn a spot in the play-in tournament, the organization may make player development a greater priority. With that in mind, rookie Jose Alvarado has seemingly supplanted Satoransky in the rotation and looks like he'll continue to hold down a spot on the second unit for the time being.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2018
2017
During his first season in Chicago, Satoransky enjoyed career highs in minutes (28.9), points (9.9) and assists (5.4) while shooting 43.0 percent from the field. He started the first 64 games before shifting to the bench for the final game of the shortened campaign. That marked rookie Cody White's first career start, and it's likely an indicator of how the depth chart will shake out in 2020-21. As such, Satoransky may revert to a bench role since White is a key facet of Chicago's rebuild. Satoransky has a proven ability to play all three positions in the backcourt, though, which should afford him the chance to log plenty of minutes as one of the first players off the bench.
For the second year in a row, Satoransky saw his workload increase with the Wizards. That resulted in career highs nearly across the board for the former 32nd overall pick. His role truly opened up once John Wall was lost due to injury, and Satoransky posted 10.7 points, 6.2 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 1.1 steals as a starter. But Washington decided to move on from Satoransky during the offseason, and the Bulls swooped in to sign him to a three-year, $30 million deal. While Chicago has young point guard options in Kris Dunn and rookie Coby White, the organization has openly place Dunn on the trading block, and starting a rookie point guard is a high-risk move for a team hoping for a postseason berth. So it appears Satoransky will join Chicago's starting five, possibly allowing him a bigger role than he's seen up to this point. Even on the off-chance that Satoransky isn't the Bulls' full-time starter, he can play three positions and could make for a great sixth man off the bench. At 6-foot-7 with a well-rounded skillset, Satoransky can play both guard spots, as well as small forward.
Satoransky saw his first major minutes during the 2017-18 campaign with starting point guard John Wall missing 41 games due to injury. That allowed him to pick up 30 starts across 73 games and tally a career-high workload of 22.5 minutes for the season. Satoransky played particularly well during those 30 starts, averaging 10.4 points, 5.8 assists and 4.4 rebounds across 30.7 minutes, while shooting a blistering 53.2 percent from the field and 50.8 percent from deep. That certainly bodes well for his future in the NBA, but unfortunately doesn't guarantee him a significant role heading into his third season in 2018-19. Wall is expected to be back to full strength and the Wizards also traded for combo guard Austin Rivers, so Satoransky is going to face a much more crowded path to playing time. He'll surely still provide some key reserve minutes at point guard for stretches of games, but the added bodies likely mean Satoransky will have a tough time matching his breakout season. For that reason, the 26-year-old is nothing more than a dynasty stash when considering his Fantasy value.
Satoransky, a rookie last season out of the Czech Republic, saw a spotty workload during 2016-17. Despite having solid athleticism and basketball IQ, he was still quite raw during his first season in the States, posting 2.7 points, 1.6 assists and 1.5 rebounds across 12.6 minutes per game. The 6-foot-7, 25-year-old also shot 41.5 percent from the field and went 9-of-37 (24.3 percent) from deep. The Wizards drafted him in the second round with the hopes of him being a jack-of-all trades player on both sides of the ball, capable of playing point guard through small forward. That was somewhat the case last year, as he spent 62 percent of his time at shooting guard and 35 percent at small forward, but just three percent at point guard and one percent at power forward. It may be tough for coach Scott Brooks to find him minutes once again, as the Wizards have a seemingly established set of reserves at each position. He’ll likely see run if the team deals multiple injuries, however. That said, he can almost certainly be avoided in the vast majority of Fantasy formats, as we have very little to go on as far as his NBA potential and he doesn’t seem to be slated for an increased workload.
