Cleveland Cavaliers general manager Koby Altman was recently spotted in Israel for a Euroleague game between Real Madrid and Tel Aviv.
According to international reporter David Pick, it seems Altman was there to scout teen sensation Luka Doncic. It’s no surprise Cleveland is interested in the Slovenian-born basketball star, who had a great game despite a loss. He had 19 points, 6 rebounds, 6 assists and 7 fouls drawn.
Former NBA point guard Norris Cole and Jonah Bolden, selected by the Philadelphia 76ers in the 2017 NBA Draft, play for Tel Aviv. Several NBA-caliber players (including Anthony Randolph, Rudy Fernandez and Edy Tavares) are on Real Madrid.
Altman was one of several front-office executives at the game. Pick reported that others in attendance included Chicago Bulls general manager Gar Forman, Atlanta Hawks assistant GM Jeff Peterson and Indiana Pacers scout Jose Galilea.
