I don't know why this hasn't shown up on these boards - forgive me if I missed it - but I came across a couple reports that Matt Thomas is likely to sign with Valencia Basket, in the Spanish league. In the process, he apparently turned down the advances of the basketball wing of L. Messi's employer, FC Barcelona. Article on turning down FC Barcelona: https://sportando.basketball/en/spain/acb/275173/matt-thomas-reportedly-turns-down-offer-from-barcelona.html The headline of this article in the Spanish sports daily Marca translates as "Valencia Basket ties up wing Matt Thomas" but then it says it could not finalize the transaction in June due to some contract verbiage in the contract of Erick Green, an American that played for Valencia last season: http://www.lasprovincias.es/deportes/valencia-bc/valencia-basket-escolta-20180531002416-ntvo.html So, it seems like it could be de-railed but bigger clubs are taking an interest in Matty Ice after this year's performance at Obradoiro. For a bit of context, Valencia finished #4 in the Spanish league regular season (2 of the top 3 spots were won by giants FC Barcelona and Real Madrid, where Doncic played). Valencia seems to have lost in the 1st round of the 8-team playoffs but qualifies for intra-European competition next year. The latter bit is important because those teams are basically in two leagues, play more games, get more TV and sponsorship money and pay much better. Clyburn, Babb and Ejim all played for teams in Russia this year that were in the Euroleague (as well as their own domestic league) and so the pay scale is much higher. If you follow soccer at all, it's sort of like the teams that play in the Champions League (or the Europa Cup) - they have to finish toward the top of their domestic leagues to qualify).
