It appears that former Ohio State forward Deshaun Thomas will begin his professional basketball career overseas, as opposed to the NBA.
According to several reports, Thomas will sign to play in France, perhaps as early as Friday. Thomas, it’s been reported, had been deciding between offers from teams in both the French and Spanish leagues.
Thomas was selected by the Spurs in the second round of the NBA Draft (No. 58 overall) in June. He entered the draft after his junior season with the Buckeyes, in which he averaged a team-high 19.8 points and 5.9 rebounds.
