Semi-professional career After Thoss moved to Australia played for the Cairns Marlins of the Australian Basketball Association. He trained under Cairns Taipans assistant coach, Aaron Fearne. During his Marlins stint he was named as Most Improved Player in 2001 and was named as part of the league's under-23 squad. Professional career He was the 5th overall pick in the 2004 PBA draft selected by the Alaska Aces and he is also the tallest rookie picked in that class.
