Partizan NIS confirmed the signing of American power forward Rashawn Thomas! The two sides agreed on a 2-year contract.

Rashawn Thomas spent four years at the Texas A&M University–Corpus Christi. After going undrafted in the 2017 NBA Draft, this 24-yar old player went to the NBA G-League to play for the Oklahoma City Blue for which he averaged 13.9 points and 7.2 rebounds per game.

The next summer Thomas decided to go overseas and he joined Italian team Dinamo Sassari. It was actually his excellent season in Italy that caught attention of Partizan NIS management. Rashawn Thomas was one of the best players of Dinamo Sassari in the 2018/19 campaign and he helped the team win the FIBA Europe Cup and reach the Italian Championship Finals.  

Thomas averaged 15.5 points and 6.4 rebounds per game in FIBA Europe Cup, while he set the new competition record by making 40 points, 16 rebounds and 54 index rating in a single game. He averaged 12.5 points and 6.6 rebounds per match in the Italian Championship.

Rashawn Thomas is the second newcomer in Partizan NIS this summer, after the club had previously completed the transfer of Nemanja Gordić.
