John A.
Thomas
Union Atletica Montevideo (LUB) agreed terms with experienced 34-year old American forward John A. Thomas (198-104kg-82, college: Columbus State). He played last summer at Vikingos in Bolivian Libobasquet. Thomas managed to play in three leagues in three countries last year.
The most of last season he spent at Estudiantes in Argentinian TNA where in 22 games he had 9.9ppg and 5.1rpg. Thomas also played that season for Colo Colo in Chilean Liga Nacional. In 13 games he recorded very impressive stats: 20.2ppg, 9.5rpg, 1.5apg and 1.2spg.
His team made it to the Paulista League Semifinals in 2012.
Thomas is quite experienced player. He has played also professionally in Brazil (Paschoalotto/Bauru and Assis Basket), Finland, Germany, Holland, Luxembourg, Mexico, Venezuela, Argentina (Weber Bahia, Union de Santa Fe, Rocamora and San Lorenzo), WBA (Marietta S.), Chile (Los Leones), NABL (Ft. Pierce P.) and NEBA (Atlanta Live).
Thomas attended Columbus State until 2004 and it will be his 13th (hopefully lucky) (!!!) season as a professional player.
On Thomas: An atletic forward who runs the court well and plays with great energy... can create his shot and goes well 1-on-1 in the paint ....his outside - inside dimension make him a good import player for international level of competition.
The type of player who does whatever the team needs. A real versatile player that can step into almost any position and get it done. During his college and pro career he has lined up at EVERY position including the pg spot for some minutes in a pinch. Can focus on and dominate any statistical category depending on the needs of his team. Easily able to defend bigger or smaller opponents while using his advantages to cause serious match up problems. Is a above average passer and if you give him the ball at the high post he will cause a ton of problems. Great a slashing to the hoop and elevating to finish but also possess a good 3pt touch and can shoot it well if asked to. Quite athletic but uses a combination of that and a high basketball IQ to frustrate opponents. Is a good team person and brings an attitude of winning into any situation
