There are other minor moves Sheppard has made that stand out as good ones. He may have found something in Garrison Mathews, a rookie on a two-way deal who can light it up from three. Anzejs Pasecniks and Gary Payton II have been nice surprises as end-of-the-roster guys. And signing Ish Smith for less money instead of retaining Tomas Satoransky has proven to be a smart decision.
“For the guys sometimes coming from a strong nation like Spain, it’s tougher,” said Tomas Satoransky, a Czech who spent seven years playing in Spain before joining the Washington Wizards and now starts for the Chicago Bulls. “I think that was a big issue, a big barrier for Juan Carlos to be successful.” Of course, he also had a choice of cities in which to play — Memphis or Barcelona. “He was in Memphis. He could stay in Barcelona,” Satoransky said. “That was an easier choice. It’s tougher for them to adapt.”
“We rely on his scoring,” Bulls guard Tomáš Satoranský said. “You can see that every night. He feels comfortable, first of all, in this position. That’s what he wants, to be the franchise player. Obviously, he’s been doing it. I think he deserved to be an All-Star, especially the way he carries our team offensively. We’ve just got to help him to put him in easy spots.”
But the Bulls clearly value Satoranský, who signed a three-year, $30 million deal. He said he was a little shocked by how careful the team was with him when he arrived after his stint in China. “I was surprised by the way they treated me like a vet,” he said. “I wasn’t used to that when I was back in D.C. I was like, man, this is a nice change. But I’m never like trying to skip practice. I’m always trying to practice here. It’s unique to practice here. The European way is you love to practice well because you play better.”
