According to reliable sources from inside TalkBasket Forums Maccabi Tel Aviv is ready to offer a multi-year contract to one of the best European prospects, German international Robin Benzing.

Benzing became widely known to mainstream European basketball fans at the Eurobasket 2009, where he stepped in Dirk’s shoes for the German National Team.

The 21 year old forward who stands at  209cm was expected to take part in 2010 NBA Draft but withdrew a couple of weeks ago and David Blatt, who has a great eye for talents, is looking to take advantage of the situation and land Benzing in Tel Aviv.

Benzing was the top scorer of U20 European Championship last summer averaging 22.2 in the process while he is considered the next big thing of German basketball alongside Elias Harris.


Benzing’s never ending effort to improve, this time personal training under the experienced guidance of legendary Serbian coach Svetislav Pesic, a great advantage for any young player.
