Hapoel Jerusalem Rumors

Hapoel Jerusalem announced that the club signed former All-EuroLeague guard Jeremy Pargo. He last played for the Golden State Warriors in February. Pargo, 34, returns to Israel where he made his professional debut with Gilboa Galil and established himself as a player of Maccabi Tel Aviv. In 2011, he made the All-EuroLeague second team while helping Maccabi reach the Final.
Hapoel Bank Yahav Jerusalem inked Deividas Sirvydis to a long-term contract, the Israeli club announced on Saturday. “We have been following Deividas all season and we have extremely impressed with the level of talent, versatility, and ability to play in both forward positions,” noted the team’s sporting director, Yotam Halperin, “His talent and upside present us many reasons for optimism.”
Sirvydis, 19, was selected 37th in the 2019 NBA draft by the Dallas Mavericks. However, his NBA rights were immediately traded to the Detroit Pistons. Afterward, he played in five 2019 Summer League games posting 1.8 points per contest.
Maccabi Tel Aviv announced the addition of veteran NBA center and six-time All-Star Amar’e Stoudemire on a contract for the remainder of the season. Stoudemire will compete in EuroLeague for the first time in his career. He previously played in Israel with Hapoel Jerusalem (of which he’s a shareholder) in 2016-2017 and 2018-2019.
