Are you disappointed that you won’t be playing for the Wizards in the NBA next season?
Tomas Satoransky: Of course I am disappointed that I won’t be on the Wizards’ roster next season and play with them. However, when I learned about their decision, I didn’t dwell on it. I instead concentrated on resting my body before the start of training camp with the Czech national team.
You were recently working out in Washington. What did you learn from it?
TS: I was there for the second time and it was a great experience, even if it ultimately didn’t work out as I would have liked—that they wanted me on the team next year. But the type of workouts we were doing out there were great. Although, they were very individual, and at completely different intensity level [than in Europe], concentrating on shooting a lot. Probably the best thing was that I met Washington’s strength and conditioning coach (Drew Cleary). He worked on a plan with me for the summer—on what I should focus on. This is what puts the NBA probably about three levels higher compared to what I’m used to in Spain. It’s always useful to experience it, I took the big positives out of my visit to Washington.
