ANDhe real Madrid the is played second place of the Endesa League (if he loses, Joventut can pass him after the green and black victory against Unicaja) against Coosur Real Betis and will do it with Trey Thompson among the players summoned by Pablo Laso to play the match.

With his mind set on the commitment during the week in Tel Aviv and that it may be worth the pass to his seventh Final Four in the last 10 years, the coach from Vitoria has decided to summon the American player to replace the discharge of Gaby Deck, who is still absent after testing positive for COVID.

Thompkins wore out of the white team’s rotation since last April 9when the white team decided to separate him along with Thomas Heurtel for a lack of discipline, after partying all night just before a decisive Euroleague game against Panathinaikos.

A decision that, according to the white coach, was exclusively his. “The thing with Heurtel and Trey is my decision. My obligation as a coach is to identify the problem. The two players no longer train with the team and it is a technical decision and it is final,” Laso assured when responding to the situation of the two players hours after not playing against Bayern Munich.

However, 10 days later, the Madrid coach himself clarified the situation of both players: “They have never been away from the team. With Thomas and Trey nothing changes. They were training apart and now they do it with the team”. A statement that once again opened the doors of the team to both players and that Thompkins has crossed again today.
