Former Duke basketball star Jon Scheyer joined Israeli powerhouse Maccabi Tel Aviv on Sunday, saying his college experience prepared him well for coping with high expectations. Because he is Jewish, Scheyer is eligible to become an Israeli and not count against a league cap on foreign players. He is expected to take a leading role for the defending Israeli champion, which lost the title game of this year's European championship to Greece's Panathinaikos. "They had a great season last year and I want to build off that this year,'' Scheyer told reporters a day after arriving in Israel for the first time. SI.com

It is a possibility that Scheyer may have been drafted had he not contracted mononucleosis leading up to the NBA Draft, but the fact that he went undrafted rather than being a second-round selection may have actually been a blessing in disguise, according to Mike Krzyzewski, Scheyer's coach at Duke. "In the second round, it's better not to be drafted," Krzyzewski told the News-Observer. "As soon as the draft is over, if you are good enough, you will be invited by five or six teams, and you will have a chance to choose who you will play summer league ball with. I would be a little bit surprised if (Scheyer is) not on an NBA roster playing next season." FanHouse.com

The 6-foot-5 rookie combo guard had originally planned to attend training camp with the Utah Jazz, according to this video, though the Jazz apparently decided otherwise and instead brought in veteran Earl Watson to compete for the role of backup point guard behind Deron Williams. FanHouse.com
