Tomas Satoransky, who spent the last two seasons with the Chicago Bulls, is now with the New Orleans Pelicans after a trade in August and he’s making waves already.
He told a publication back home in the Czech Republic this about the rumors that Zion Williamson would like to get out of New Orleans when his rookie contract allows it: “I have a feeling that some American media which cover the NBA want to break up teams and create fake stories so that something’s happening. This one’s dissatisified. This one wants to leave. Most of the time, the truth is elsewhere or in the middle.
“It’s definitely not true that Zion in his third season is thinking about not having good players around him. I’m convinced of it.”
Let’s break this down into two parts.
In the first, there is the suggestion that the media is trying to create a story where there is none. Could that happen?
It happens all the time, so yes.
And second, his insights into Williamson’s plans: has he been there long enough to have genuine insights into Williamson’s mindset on this?
That one is trickier.
What convinces him? Why would he think this? Has he talked to Williamson? Spent time around him?
It’s possible of course. They might have spent time together at the Hornets’ training facility since he arrived and for all we know they go out to the French Quarter together.
We kind of doubt it but it’s certainly possible.
We’ll surely see more stories like this over the next year. All we can do is to wait.
