Thompson said of his career: “I’m so grateful for where basketball has taken me. It’s taken me to China, Brazil, New Zealand, Spain, around the world. But there is nowhere like Pullman.”

“No matter what uni I put on — hopefully a Warriors one for the rest of my career — I will always be a Coug,” said Thompson.
