According to krepsinis.net, Barcelona are already negotiating with the agent of Romain Sato(1.95-SG/SF). This might seem strange as the guard/forward from the Central African Republic is still playing for Siena in the italian LegaA1 play-offs. According to the article the catalan club are planning ahead in case they lose Ersan Ilyasova to the NBA and the Milwaukee Bucks. He was selected by the San Antonio Spurs in the 2004 NBA Draft, but never played for the team, and was subsequently waived on February 24, 2005
Sato has averaged 10.1 points and 3.9 rebounds in 20 games in the Euroleague, while being in the starting line up in 19 of them. He has also averaged 13.4 points 6 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 5 games in the play-offs so far. He averaged 12.6 points 5 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 29 games in the regular season for Siena.
