Maccabi Electra adds promising guard Scheyer
June 19, 2011
The Turkish Airlines Euroleague runner-up Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv keeps adding to its roster for he 2011-12 season with the signing of promising guard Jon Scheyer on a two-year-contract. Sheyer (1.96 meters, 23 years old) made a name for himself as a college star at Duke University, which he led to the 2010 NCAA title. He was named a consensus second-team All-American after his senior season, when he averaged 18.2 points, 4.9 assists and 3.6 rebounds. He finished his career as Duke's top-ranked player ever in games played, with 144. He also made Duke's career top-ten list in scoring, three-pointers made, free throws made, steals and minutes played. Following his college career, Scheyer suffered an eye injury playing in a summer league and missed much of last season. He returned to the court with Rio Grande Valley of the NBA Development League in February and proceeded to average 13.8 points and 4.1 assists over the final 16 games of the season.
"We're very happy with the addition of Scheyer. We wanted to sign him already last season, but it didn't work out," Macccabi head coach David Blatt said. "He's a very skilled and smart player with a team game orientation. He knows how to step up in clutch times, and is a true winner who, in spite his young age, already has had lots of chances to prove that. He has a lot of commitment to the team he plays for and those are the kind of things we like to see in our players."
