Rumors about Velickovic and Maccabi

According to there are articles in the serbian sports media saying that Novica Velickovic(2.05-PF/SF) has agreed to continue his career in Maccabi Tel Aviv. Wishful thinking one might say as Maccabi is "hot" for transfers rumors but nothing concrete has surfaced yet, such as statements of the player of his agent. Other websites around Europe followed suit reproducing the rumor but at this point in time it's anyone's game.

Velickovic, much like Pekovic drew the spotlights on him leading the team of Partizan throughout the Euroleague and the Adriatic League and even won the award for Rising Star that is given to players 22 years old and below. He finished the season in the Euroleague as Partizan's top scorer, with 11.5 points per game, and it's second best rebounder, with 5.1 on average. Velickovic was also among his team's best three players in steals, assists and blocks.
