Bulls made a huge mistake by signing him. He’s vastly overpaid. There are vet minimim PGs that are better than him.
Sato for his invisible play... kinda ranks decently well as a two-way rotation player, although he had a terrible year by his career shooting standards. I don’t know if he’s overrated. I do think he should’ve been coming off the bench all year. If he finds his 3P stroke next year, he’d be a good 8th man.
His impact totally reminds me of Ilyasova and Belinelli when Sixers picked them up off the waiver wires. Great as bargains. Just not a guy I’d spent 2-3 years of cap-space for. It was very GarPax-ish signing two low-ceiling reserves at crowded positions, with $25m in cap-space. Not much different than wasting the same on Wade.
I still can't understand why people expected Sato to be some kind of revelational steal even after a solid FIBA showing. He had the Wizards in the tank as Wall's replacement starting guard.
