The Bulls acquired Satoransky from the Wizards on Monday as part of a sign-and-trade deal, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Satoransky will sign a three-year, $30 million contract, per Wojnarowski. During his third season in Washington in 2018-19, Satoransky saw his largest role to date after stepping in as the team's starting point guard in December following John Wall's season-ending Achilles' surgery. He averaged 8.9 points, 5.0 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 1.0 steal in 27.1 minutes per contest while shooting a respectable 48.5 percent from the floor and 39.5 percent from distance. With lottery pick Coby White and holdover Kris Dunn representing the Bulls' top options at point guard, Satoransky projects to serve as the team's top reserve on the wing behind starters Zach LaVine and Otto Porter. In return for Satoransky, who was a restricted free agent, the Wizards will have protections removed on the 2023 second-round pick they previously acquired from Chicago. Washington will also receive the better of Memphis and Chicago's 2020 second-round pick along with the right to swap the Lakers' 2022 second-round pick with the better of Chicago and Detroit's 2022 second-round selections.
Satoransky scored 19 points (6-8 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT) and registered four rebounds along with five assists over 28 minutes Tuesday against Boston. Satoransky had his shot working in the season finale, knocking down all three of his attempts from downtown while also contributing in other categories, such as rebounds and assists. His season will come to an end after averaging 8.7 points, 5.0 assists and 3.5 boards over 79 games.
Satoransky turned in eight points (4-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt), 11 assists, five rebounds and one steal across 37 minutes in the Wizards' 124-106 loss to the Lakers on Tuesday. Satoransky was far from his sharpest offensively, but he helped make up for it by equaling his highest assist total of March. The 27-year-old has done a solid job filling in for John Wall (heel) in the wake of the latter' season-ending injury, even as his shot has been all over the map of late. Satoransky has impressively drained 50.0 percent or better of his attempts in half of 14 games during the month, but he's also put up a success rate of 40.0 percent or worse in six other contests within March as well.
Satoransky (head) will play in Saturday's game against Memphis, Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington reports. Satoransky passed all concussion-related tests and is set to go and will presumably start Saturday. In 41 starts this year, Satoransky's averaging 10.6 points, 6.1 assists and 4.4 rebounds in 32.4 minutes .
