Unicaja Malaga adds power in Thomas
Will Thomas joins Unicaja Malaga

Unicaja Malaga has added new inside presence to its frontcourt by hiring power forward Will Thomas for at least one season. Thomas (2.03 meters, 28 years old) arrives from Avellino of the Italian League, for whom he averaged 15.3 points and 7.4 rebounds last season, ranking seventh overall in performance index rating with 19.7 per game. Avellino was Thomas's fifth pro team since he spent four seasons at George Mason University. He started with Belgacom Liege and Telenet Ostend for a season each in Belgium, then moved to BC Armia in Tbilisi, Georgia and Pinar Karsiyaka in Turkey before landing last season in Italy. He was a domestic champ in Georgia and a finalist in Belgium with Liege as well as a FIBA EuroChallenge runner-up with Karsiyaka. Thomas will make his Turkish Airlines Euroleague debut with Unicaja.
