After he scored one of the most important baskets for Real Madrid on the team's march to the 2018 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague title, big man Trey Thompkins
decided to stick around for that title defense by re-signing with the club for two more seasons. Thompkins (2.08 meters, 28 years old) has spent the past three seasons with Los Blancos
. He averaged 9.5 points on 42.0% three-point shooting plus 5.1 rebounds as a part-time starter last season. Thompkins's put-back plus foul in the final minute of the championship game against Fenerbahce Dogus Istanbul helped seal the EuroLeague championship. During his time in the Spanish capital, Thompkins has also been a part of winning a pair of Spanish League championships, two Spanish Copa del Reys and the 2015 Intercontinental Cup. The big man debuted in the EuroLeague with Russian side Nizhny Novgorod for the 2014-15 seasons after spending much of the previous two campaigns recovering from a knee injury. Thompkins played his first professional season for the Los Angeles Clippers of the NBA in 2011-12.
