New Orleans Pelicans guard Tomas Satoransky believes that NBA media are trying to break up teams and create fake stories regarding small market superstars like Zion Williamson.

The Pelicans’ guard spoke recently with Czech Daily on him playing in a new environment and the situation around an NBA transcendent talent like Williamson.

“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,” he said. “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,” Satoransky added. “I’m convinced of it.”

Zion is under his rookie contract deal until 2023, but even that did not stop reports of Williamson’s alleged unhappiness with the Pelicans.
