“And he came with us, hung out with a few of our players, because he knows Aron Baynes and Brock Motum. Came and said hello to them. And then fast-forward two or three hours later, I thought he’d left. I walked downstairs to go to dinner or whatever and he’s downstairs playing ping-pong with, like, someone from the athletics team on the Australian national team, you know?”
Just​ going to​ say​ this and​ get out of​ the way:​ The​ stories about Klay Thompson’s​ three years at​​ Washington State are as delightful and on-brand — for both Thompson and the Cougars — as you could hope. But first WSU had to get Thompson to Pullman. Ben Johnson, assistant coach: I called Tony Bennett in the middle of the night. He was in Australia recruiting Aron Baynes and Brock Motum. I woke Tony up and just said, “Listen, call Mychal Thompson and get the ball rolling on this thing.” Tony was able to do that, and Klay came up on a visit. Klay is not a man of many words. … He literally said three words the entire visit.
David Fredman, the team’s director of pro player personnel, said the Jazz kept close tabs on Motum after he returned to his native Australia last fall after he was cut by the Jazz. The former Washington State big man had a nice run on the Jazz’s summer league squad and then was let go just before the regular season tipped off in late October. “In the early going, he looks pretty good,” Fredman said of the 6-foot-10 big. “He looks a little familiar.”
