100 Thieves had a rough 2020 year, with a few different roster changes throughout various positions. This off-season, they're reportedly keeping only one player, their star top laner, Kim "Ssumday" Chan-ho. Beyond Ssumday, they're rumored to fill the rest of the four open positions with the four Golden Guardians players from each role. Here is their current rumored roster, based on reports and official announcements from the team and players.
Confirmed player signings are in green. Confirmed player departures are in strikethrough red. Transfers reported by reputable sources are in purple.
Golden Guardians jungler Can "Closer" Çelik and AD carry Victor "FBI" Huang have been confirmed as starters for 100 Thieves' 2021 League of Legends Championship Series squad. Travis Gafford has reported that 100 Thieves is also looking towards two other Golden Guardians members — mid laner Tanner "Damonte" Damonte and support Choi "huhi" Jae-hyun — to round out the roster around Ssumday, who should be remaining with the team through 2021.
Earlier in the off-season, 100 Thieves and AD carry Sun "Cody Sun" Yi-Lu mutually agreed to terminate the contract between both parties prematurely. 100 Thieves' offseason was quiet until Gafford reported the signings of Closer and FBI, which came two days before his report of Damonte and huhi also being signed. At this time, only the former pair of GG players have been confirmed as acquired by the organization.
UPDATE 11/19: 100 Thieves formally announced their final roster on Thursday, officially signing both Damonte and huhi, and reconfirming Ssumday as their mainstay in the top lane. Head Coach Tony "Zikz" Gray's contract has also been extended for one year.
UPDATE 11/19: Isaac McIntyre reported that Ryoma is very likely to continue on 100 Thieves as their Academy mid laner.
UPDATE 12/1: 100 Thieves has added to its coaching staff following the completion of its LCS roster. Greyson "Goldenglue" Gilmer has been signed as the head coach of 100 Thieves Academy, and Ham "Lustboy" Jang-sik will be a role coach for the support players employed by the org.
