Maccabi Elite Tel Aviv decided to reinforce its backcourt ahead of the the Top 16 by bringing in combo-guard Goran Jeretin. The deal is for a year-and-a-half, running through the 2007-08 season. Jeretin (27, 1.92m) was signed to play for Dynamo St. Petersburg in Russia this season, but after the team went bankrupt, the Montenegrin guard joined Buducnost, where he averaged 18.1 points and 3.9 assists in 14 Adriatic League games. Jeretin has spent much of his career with Crvena Zvezda Belgrade, helping the club to the ULEB Cup quarterfinals in the last season, before falling to eventual champion Dynamo Moscow. He led the Adriatic League last season with 4 assists per game. Jeretin is expected in Israel early next week.
