In the israeli media, Ante Tomic(2.17-C) is a considered a done deal for 4 seaons to play for Maccabi Tel Aviv. KK Zagreb though has another view on the subject. The spokesman of the club Dražen Beraković, spoke to croatian portal sportnet.hr and denied the rumors about Tomic's transer.
"This information is not correct. The club has not yet received any concrete offer for Tomic, he currently prepares with the team and has not signed a contract with Maccabi." were Berakovic's words.
Tomic is considered one of the hottest prospects in Europe this time round and the interest from Maccabi is more than justified. The article said that they are aware of an enquiry from Maccabi about the player but KK Zagreb have yet to reply. Tomic averaged 15.5 points 8.6 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 24 games of the Adriatic League. The fans of Maccabi see in Tomic a worthy successor to Nikola #Vujcic#'s legacy and this story will definitely have more episodes.
