Lille Metropole Basket Red Giants (ProB) agreed terms with 25-year old center Thomas Hieu-Courtois (200cm) for new 2021-22 season. It is actually his comeback to Lille Metropole as he has played here before. Hieu-Courtois played last season at SIG Strasbourg in French Jeep ELITE ProA. Jeep ELITE ProA was a little too high level for him, where in 7 Jeep ELITE ProA games he had just 1.6ppg and 1.3rpg. ProB will be definitely a better match and he can see more playing time. He also played for Lille Metropole that season. In 30 ProB games he recorded 10.1ppg, 5.1rpg and 3.1apg.
He has played previously for three other teams: Metropolitans, Aix Maurienne and ADA Blois.
Hieu-Courtois won French ProB championship title in 2018.
