Gal Mekel To Audition For Bucks, Others

Israeli point guard Gal Mekel drew attention from the Jazz last offseason and after another impressive year overseas, he could finally have his NBA opportunity in 2013/14.  After Thursday's Israeli title game, Mekel will come to the United States to audition for the Bucks and other teams, according to Marc Stein of (via Twitter).

The 25-year-old has good size for the one-guard position and is quite impressive in pick-and-roll sets (link).  Given his ability, the Maccabi Haifa star has a good chance to join Omri Casspi as the only Israelis in the NBA.  Mekel will try and finish out his Haifa career with a bang by leading his team to a championship victory over Maccabi Electra this week.
