Wizards Officially Sign Veteran Guard

The Washington Wizards have officially signed Tomas Satoransky.

When Satoransky was bought out by the San Antonio Spurs last week, it was reported that he was going to sign a deal with the Wizards. Now, it has come to fruition, and the reunion is official. Keep in mind, the 30-year-old played his first three NBA seasons with the organization. 

Santoransky has played in 31 games between the New Orleans Pelicans and Spurs this season. In them, he averaged 2.8 points, 2.0 rebounds, and 2.3 assists. Compared to recent years, his playing time has dropped off dramatically, as he only has averaged 14.8 minutes per game. In each of the previous four seasons, he averaged over 20 minutes per contest. With Washington, he will be hoping to receive more playing time. 

At this point of the campaign, the Wizards have a 27-33 record. At this time, they trail the Charlotte Hornets by 2.5 games for the final play-in round spot, so they certainly aren't out of the running. Thus, it makes sense that they have brought in a familiar face with Satoransky.
