ESPN's Marc Stein says point guard Gal Mekel impressed the Utah Jazz in a recent audition to such a degree that the Jazz, according to sources close to the situation, have extended an unexpected invitation to training camp to Mekel, who played two seasons at Wichita State from 2006-08.
That is very exciting news. Mekel is one of the finest Israeli ballers today and might be the one with the most potential. If this heappens I'll be extreamly thrilled to see how he will perform on NBA level basketball. It is a bit too early for comparssions but if he'll reach his ceiling I see him as a new Goran Dragic.
I'll check what the Israeli media has to say about this and keep you posted.
