Last season’s Turkish Airlines EuroLeague runner-up, Olympiacos Piraeus, got the final piece it was looking for to complete its roster with the addition of swingman Hollis Thompson.
Thompson (2.03 meters, 26 years old) spent most of his professional career with Philadelphia in the NBA, where he played a total 265 games, including 90 as a starter, dating back to 2013, with a career average of 7.7 points on 38.6% three-point shooting plus 3.1 rebounds.
Philadelphia is where Thompson played the first part of last season, too, before moving to Austin in the D-League and having a brief stint back in the NBA with New Orleans. In his two stints with Austin, where he finished the season, Thompson posted 14.4 points and 4.8 rebounds.
He is now set to make his EuroLeague debut with the Reds.
