The Washington Wizards are pushing to sign Tomas Satoransky to a contract extension, as reported by NBC Sports.
The Czech guard will be restricted free agent from July 1, 2019.
Per NBC Sports, But the Wizards hope to secure a deal before he hits the market with the ability to reach a new contract at any time.
Unlike players near the end of rookie scale contracts like Kelly Oubre Jr.’s, whom the Wizards did not agree to terms with in mid-October for instance, the Wizards are free to negotiate a new deal with Satoransky before the summer.
The interest appears to be mutual. Satoransky is open to re-signing with the Wizards.
