Gal Mekel will not be going to Maccabi

Israeli guard Gal Mekel will not be joining up with new club Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv due to an “incompatibility”.

The club released a duo of tweets, wishing Mekel well in his future endeavours but did not specify exactly why he would sign with the club.

Mekel, a former Dallas Mavericks and New Orleans Pelicans guard returned to Europe to play for Nizhny Novgorod in February and was due to ink a three-year deal with Maccabi, which included NBA outs.
