Basket Thompson play Italy Federbasket

In Search of the Lost American. Sfumato Paolo Banchero, attracted more by Team USA that from a blue perspective, the Federbasket she is certain she can have available for the World Cup Darius Thompson. The call-up of the Baskonia point guard came directly from the federal president Gianni PetrucciStreet Gazzetta dello Sport: “With the great work of general manager Trainotti, we have accelerated the procedures for issuing a passport for marriage. Few documents are missing. We are confident that Thompson will be able to join the training camp in Folgaria at the end of July in preparation for the World Cup if Poz calls him up". In a crowded sector like that of point guards (with Spissu, Mannion, Spagnolo and Pajola), the arrival of Thompson would add certainties and personality, but would inevitably take away space and a place on the roster leaving for Southeast Asia, where the World Cup will take place . The Azzurri will be on stage in Manila, where they will face Angola, the Dominican Republic and the Philippines in the first phase. A rather simple group, which would however theoretically put the Azzurri on the path of the USA (and therefore, probably, of Banchero) in the quarterfinals. Alternatively, the former Brindisi could play as a guard, in a double play quintet.

Who is Darius Thompson

Galeotto was, for Thompson, Brindisi and its Bozzano district, where Darius and Clare Pacifichis future wife, met in 2019. The couple tied the knot in 2020. Thompson landed at theHappy Brindisi house in 2019, coming from Leiden, where he had been awarded as the best player in the Dutch league. In 2021, farewell to Kuban. After the explosion of the Russo-Ukrainian conflict, the point guard born in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, in 1995, moved to the Baskonia. Last season he won the “Best Newcomer” award, dedicated to the best player in his first Euroleague season. With the Baskonia shirt he finished with almost 12.6 points per game and 6.7 assists per game (best passer of the European season), earning a place in the second best team of Euroleague and touching the qualification to the playoffs with the Basques. Now he's a transfer market man: after being courted by Olimpia Milano, attracted not only by his qualities but also by his status as an Italian, now Thompson would be very close to signing with Fenerbahce.
