FC Barcelona Rumors
Free-agent guard Marcelo Huertas – one of the Euroleague’s most accomplished playmakers – has agreed to a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Lakers, league sources told Yahoo Sports. Huertas, 32, could give the Lakers an experienced pick-and-roll point guard to complement the development of No. 2 overall pick D’Angelo Russell. Huertas would be competing in a backcourt that also includes Jordan Clarkson, Lou Williams and star Kobe Bryant.
After several years of will-he or won’t-he with Tomas Satoransky, the Wizards expect that he’ll finally join them after he completes the second and final year of his contract with Barcelona this season.
The Wizards visited Satoransky, a 6-7 combo guard from the Czech Republic who was taken in the second round of the 2012 NBA draft, in the past week, CSNmidatlantic.com has confirmed. When their roster turns over in 2016 with anywhere from 7-10 spots open pending what they do with their own free agents, the Wizards still will have a solid core waiting with John Wall, Bradley Beal, Marcin Gortat, Otto Porter and Kelly Oubre under contract.
According to a person with knowledge of the situation, Satoransky has told the Wizards that he intends to be here.
FC Barcelona announced the departure of Marcelinho Huertas after four seasons. The Brazilian point guard won twice the ACB with the Spanish team, one Copa del Rey and one Supercup.
