In the summer, Maccabi Tel Aviv made one of its best deals in recent years when it signed Lorenzo Brown, who exceeds all early expectations. But in light of his high ability, and especially in light of the exit clause in his contract, the Yellows will have to work hard to keep him for another season.

The 32-year-old Brown signed for two seasons, but with an exit option this summer in a million dollar buyout. That is, a team that wants Brown’s services will have to compensate Maccabi Tel Aviv for the specified amount, even if Brown would indeed prefer to leave.

In Maccabi Tel Aviv, naturally, they will do as much as they can to keep Brown, but they are aware of the fact that he is expected to be in demand. One of the interested parties is Real Madrid, for whom he is considered an attractive option due to his Spanish passport.

The previous summer, as I recall, Maccabi Tel Aviv received compensation for two players for whom a buyout was paid: Scotty Wilbkin who moved to Fenerbahce and Ante Zizic who joined Efes Andolo. The money that entered the club for the two helped in building the current squad, and among other things, in the signing of bright names such as Brown, Wade Baldwin and others.

Brown, who signed with Maccabi Tel Aviv before leading the Spanish national team to win the European Championship, is having the best season of his career and is leading the Yellows to a positive balance in the Euroleague. He scores an average of 17.6 points per game, along with 6.4 assists, 3.3 rebounds and an index of 18. Maccabi believes that in light of the fact that Brown feels comfortable within the team, and is showing his highest ability since arriving in Europe, they will be able to keep him at the club.
