Maccabi Tel-Aviv continues to bolster its roster, aiming to remain a title contender in the EuroLeague next season. After reaching the playoffs last season, the Israeli powerhouse wants to return to the Final Four for the first time since 2014.
With Oded Kattash taking over the team, Maccabi started making changes to its roster. So far, Scottie Wilbekin and Ante Zizic parted ways with the squad, joining Fenerbahce and Anadolu Efes, respectively.
At the same time, the Israelis signed big man Alex Poythress, guard Darrun Hilliard and forward Bonzie Colson. And according to Israeli journalist Moses Barda, Maccabi will now add big man Josh Nebo and forward TJ Leaf to the roster.
With Josh Nebo agreeing to terms with Maccabi Tel Aviv, TJ Leaf is expected to be the next in line as he is also on the verge of reaching a deal with the club.

Nebo spent the previous season with Zalgiris Kaunas, making the difference on both ends and averaging 8.8 points and 6.2 rebounds in the EuroLeague.
For his part, Leaf spent the previous four seasons in the NBA, playing for the Indiana Pacers and the Portland Trail Blazers, respectively.
Maccabi Tel-Aviv is also close to signing forward Austin Hollins, who will part ways with Crvena Zvezda, and guard Lorenzo Brown, who played for UNICS Kazan last season.
