Washington Wizards Trade Rumors: 3 players that will be staying put ahead of the trade deadline
The window to make trades in the NBA will come to a close later this week ahead of the annual All-Star Event in North Carolina.
Due to this, NBA fans can expect an influx of trades in the coming days, as teams around the league make a last-minute dash to finalize their rosters for the remainder of the season.
The NBA's strugglers will be looking to offload their highest earners in exchange for young players and draft picks, whilst playoff contenders will be targeting individuals that can come in and boost the team for the remainder of the regular season.
After another difficult season, many NBA insiders have urged the Washington Wizards to become sellers ahead of the trade deadline, although the Wizards remain just two games out from a playoff spot, and the organization is likely to refuse any offers for a number of their best players.
So, despite all the trade talk surrounding their futures, here are three players that will remain with the Wizards.
#3 Tomas Satoransky
While the future of Bradley Beal and John Wall has constantly dominated the Wizards news cycle so far this season, a number of players such as Tomas Satoransky have quietly developed into reliable contributors to the team.
The former EuroLeague player didn't enter the league until 2016, although Satoransky has steadily improved during his three seasons with the Wizards, and during the 17/18 campaign, the 27-year-old is averaging 7.8 points and 3.9 assists per game.
The former Barcelona man is also shooting an excellent 43% from beyond the arc, and in Satoransky, the Wizards boast one of the better back up point guards in the NBA.
While Satoransky's contract expires in the summer, the guard has stated his happiness in Washington, and the team is unlikely to consider trading him ahead of the deadline.
