October 13, 2013 Updates

Will this be your last season in the ACB because the NBA is waiting for you? Tomas Satoransky: I don't know, this summer there was talk that I was going there (smiles) and look: I'm here. Now I can't say anything, I'm focused on playing with Cajasol. Would I like to play in the NBA? Sure, but I have time to go there. I would like to play in the Euroleague too, but those are things for the future. I have to play well with Cajasol first. Encestando

Lukas Kuba: After a couple days of working out in DC, Wizards FO made it clear to #Satoransky that he should stay in Europe for another season.

Satoransky has some talent and considerable athleticism, but the Wizards still intend to stick to their plan of stashing the second-round pick in Europe next season, according to a league source with knowledge of the team’s thinking. Satoransky would have needed a spectacular performance to change the original plan. In five summer league games, the 6-foot-7 Satoransky didn’t overwhelm anyone. He averaged just 4.4 points and 1.8 assists and shot just 37.5 percent (6 of 16) from the floor while backing up Shelvin Mack. Washington Post

Tomas Satoransky, the shooting guard from the Czech Republic likely headed for the second round, has an option, but no buyout, to get out of the contract with his Spanish team this summer. But if returns to what most rate as the second-best league in the world, it’s with a contract for two seasons and a buyout after 2012-13. “I would like to play in the NBA next year, but I wouldn’t be against the option to stay one more year in Europe,” he said. “I think the basketball there is at a pretty good level, especially if you are on a team that plays Euroleague. I think it makes you stronger.” NBA.com

Adrian Wojnarowski: Czech 6-7 point guard Tomas Satoransky will remain in the 2012 NBA Draft, source tells Y! Sports. He's moved up charts into early 2nd range. Twitter

So the only players we're really looking at are the international players who are younger than 22 years old. This year 17 international players declared early for the 2012 NBA draft. As of Sunday night, only one international player, Turkey's Furkan Aldemir, was confirmed to be staying in the draft. Aldemir is a likely second-round selection. Sources say that France's Evan Fournier is also very likely to stay in the draft, as well. Fournier is projected to be a mid to late first-round pick. A few others including Tomas Satoransky, Josep Franch and Tornike Shengelia might also stay. However, at this point, they don't look like they have a serious shot at the first round. ESPN.com
