Olympiacos completes roster with sharpshooter Thompson
Greek powerhouse and last season's Turkish Airlines EuroLeague runner-up, Olympiacos Piraeus, got the final piece it was looking for to complete its roster for the upcoming season with the addition of swingman Hollis Thompson, the club announced on Thursday.
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 and started in 90 of them since 2013, with a career average of 7.7 points, on 38.6% three-point shooting, with 3.1 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game. Philadelphia is where Thompson played the first part of last season, too, before moving to Austin in the NBA G-League, and having a brief stint with NBA side New Orleans. In his two stints with Austin, where he finished the season, Thompson posted 14.4 points and 4.8 rebounds. Thompson is now set to make his EuroLeague debut with the Reds.
