Drew NicholasDavid Blatt, the new head coach of Maccabi, is already looking at possible additions to the team. Drew Nicholas of Panathinaikos appears to be one of the most wanted players by Blatt. The two-year contract of a 29-year-old American forward expires this summer.

Drew Nicholas averaged 10.8 points per game in Euroleague this season. He started 15 out of 16 Panathinaikos’ games and played an important role in the club.

The player wants €1.3M per season in Maccabi. However, it is unlikely that such contract will be offered to Nicholas.

During his coaching career David Blatt managed to bring many American players to the clubs he coached. This could be an important factor in bringing Drew Nicholas to Tel Aviv.
