Turkish Airlines EuroLeague newcomer AS Monaco, brought in some experience just a couple of weeks before the start of the 2021-22 season with the addition of big man Will Thomas to a two-year deal. Thomas (2.03 meters, 35 years old) arrives from Zenit St Petersburg, where last season he averaged 9.3 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 39 EuroLeague appearances, all of them as a starter. He was one of the key players that led Zenit to its first playoffs appearance ever, only to fall in Game 5 to eventual runner-up, FC Barcelona.
This will be Thomas's sixth EuroLeague season overall. He has already played with Unicaja Malaga, Valencia Basket and Zenit for a total 144 games and 1,186 points in the top continental competition. He also played in two 7DAYS EuroCup seasons with Valencia, winning the 2018-19 title and being named Finals MVP that same year.
