Union Olimpija has made their second summer signing by acquiring the services of Deon Thompson.
Thompson made his debut in European courts last season with newly promoted A1 club of Ikaros Kallithea, where he was the team’s leader in their successful campaign to avoid relegation.
Although the, international with USA youth teams, player had lucrative offers from Turkey he couldn’t resist the prospect of playing in Euroleague next season.
Olimpija offered the player a two years deal, worth a total of $400K. The signing should be announced later in the day, or tomorrow.
