Sources: Envy Looks to Thomas to Round Out CS:GO roster
Team Envy are looking to add Thomas "Thomas" Utting as the fifth member of their CS:GO lineup, according to multiple sources close to the situation. Thomas is under contract with Endpoint, but discussions are underway to bring him to Envy.
Team Envy have made multiple changes to their lineup as of late with Nikola "LEGIJA" Ninic moving from coach to player. That move and the prospective addition of Thomas are possible due to the departures of Kaleb "moose" Jayne and Ryan "ryann" Welsh. Stepping into the head coach spot is Jakub “kuben” Gurczyński, who is most known for his time as coach of the most accomplished Polish lineup in CS:GO history in Virtus.pro.
Thomas has played with the Endpoint organization on two separate occasions, with the first stint lasting just over a year between 2018 and 2019. Following that run, he played with a few different orgless lineups like NoChance before returning to Endpoint once again in January. Should he come to terms with Envy, it is expected the deal will be finalized within the week.
Team Envy had a difficult first half of the year after an 11th place finish in FLASHPOINT Season 1 and have now been eliminated from the Road to Rio tournament after poor performances at the first two stages. Their elimination means they will not take part in the upcoming IEM New York Online tournament in North America.
Representatives from Team Envy did not initially respond to request for comment.
