Thomas Wilson has officially joined the black & white family of Partizan NIS. This 20-year old Australian point guard signed a 3-year deal with the Belgrade powerhouse this Thursday, while he will join the team on August 13.

In 2016 Wilson moved from Australia to America to play basketball at college. He firstly played for Southern Methodist University, while then he moved to Boise State University. This summer, he decided to start his pro career, so he left the USA and accepted the call of Partizan NIS.

Wilson played for the U17 Australia national team at the U17 FIBA World Championship 2014. He averaged 12.3 points and 6.6 rebounds per game and helped his team to reach the tournament finals. In the final match he scored 23 points against the USA. One year later, Wilson played at the U19 FIBA World Championship, averaging 6.4 points and 4.4 rebounds along the way.
