American point guard Jeremy Pargo and Israeli side Maccabi Tel Aviv are expected to continue their partnership together, a source told Sportando. A deal has been reached between the two sides and an official announcement should arrive in the next 48-72 hours, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
After the first signings for the next season, Pargo had shown skepticism about his potential stability in Tel Aviv but at the beginning of July, the talks between the two sides started to intensify again. Maccabi was looking also at the other options, including Alex Caruso, a source told Sportando. Caruso was considered as a main target by Maccabi, a source told Sportando, but the player is still under contract with the Los Angeles Lakers and, for the moment, the NBA franchise has no intention to part ways with him, a league source told Sportando.
