Issuf Sanon RumorsAll NBA Players
In July, Sanon will get his first taste of the NBA when he joins the Wizards’ Summer League team in Las Vegas, along with the 15th pick, Troy Brown Jr. However, after the experience, Sanon will return to Slovenia to continue playing overseas. The Wizards plan to develop him similarly to Tomas Satoransky, a second-round draft pick in 2012 who remained with his European team for several seasons before coming to the NBA.
“He’s playing for Olimpija Ljubljana next year. He’s under contract with them. He’s going to be playing over there, developing game, getting minutes. He’s playing in a very tough league over there,” Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld said. “We hope to have him developed in a few years. He’s only 18 years old, but very athletic, very talented. [He] makes plays, he has a nice shot and he’s playing very tough competition.”
Chase Hughes: The Wizards plan to have assistant Ryan Richman coach their summer league team, I’m told. Should have some interesting players including Troy Brown, Issuf Sanon and Devin Robinson.
