Deshaun Thomas Signs With FC Barcelona

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Bishop Luers graduate and former Ohio State star Deshaun Thomas will spend this upcoming season overseas as Thomas has signed to play for FC Barcelona in Spain.
A few weeks ago Thomas was close to signing a deal with a team in Italy, but FC Barcelona provides him the opportunity to play for one of Europe’s premier club teams.
The team announced the signing on its website.
It will be Thomas’ second season in Europe. He played last season for Nanterre in France, leading his team in scoring while helping Nanterre win the French Cup for the first time in franchise history.
Thomas was a second round draft pick – 58th overall – by the San Antonio Spurs in the 2013 NBA Draft. provides commenting on many stories to allow for constructive discussion.
