Head coach Scott Brooks knows Tomas Satoransky is more comfortable at point guard and that he was asked to do some things he hadn’t done before as a rookie in the 2016-17 season, challenges that he handled with varied success. But Brooks wants Satoransky, who averaged 12.6 minutes in 57 games as a rookie, to expect more of that in the future. “Regardless of how you feel as a player that ‘I need to play this position,’ I think those days are done,” Brooks said. “I know he likes that he’s been a point guard all his life, but the way we play and the way the NBA is, you need playmakers on the court. Sometimes we all, even myself, we get caught up in his he a one or is he a two? No, they’re basketball players.”
“I think [Tomas Satoransky] can do multiple positions. I think he can play one, two and three. He has the size to do that,” Brooks said. “We want to have a system where we have a couple of guards and a couple of forwards and a center out there. You can argue that we can have three guards on the court at the same time. With John [Wall] and Brad [Beal], they both can handle the ball. They both can play pick-and-roll. You can have Tomas and Tim in the game. You can have Tomas and John in the game. They both handle the ball. You need multiple playmakers in the game.”
The Wizards see the Frazier deal as one that should not affect Satoransky negatively. He is still very much a part of their plans. “Tomas is a versatile player who can play two or three different positions and competition is good,” president Ernie Grunfeld said. “He has a year of experience under his belt. He can play the point, he can play two and he can play three, so I don’t think that will affect him too much. But competition is good among your players.”
