I think Theis could be a Zaza like roll player for The Celtics. He's a defense first player and a good shot block/deterrer...

/taɪ̯s/ is my best bet, and it is in moments like this I regret dropping German after a couple of years.

I'm p sure there is at least one German native speaker in the Forums though, I remember him commenting on Theis and the German national team a few days ago.

you are correct.. not native speaker (trying hard though).

th in german is pronounced as t
and ei as i in ice

so it is tice :D

Wouldn't it be a little bit more like 'tize', since 's' is usually pronounced less softly, but rather hard (as in 'Musik', 'super', 'sondern' and so on)???  ;)

No, that only applies when the S is at the beginning of a word and followed by a vowel, or when it's between vowels. Theis is pronounced like "Tice". It begins just like "type" or "tight", and ends just like "ice" or "mice."

Sooo I'm from Berlin, Germany and I can confirm that it is pronounced  Tice  ;D

Given the amount of playing time that he is likely to get, this thread could end up spending more time discussing his name than the announcers will for the entire season.
