During the 2021-22 season, Thompkins saw limited time on the court, and participated in 13 EuroLeague and three Spanish Liga Endesa contests.
Zenit further announced Wednesday they have added guard Joe Thomasson two a two-year deal. Thomasson, 28, last played for Baxi Manresa and was named into the 2022 Basketball Champions League All-Second Team.
