Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv made official on Monday the addition of shooting guard Sandy Cohen III for the next four seasons. Cohen (1.98 meters, 23 years old) arrives directly from the NCAA, where he spent the last two seasons plying for Wisconsin-Green Bay. Last year he averaged 17.5 points, 6.4 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 1.9 steals per game. Cohen was not selected in the NBA draft and played with the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Summer League and now he landed a long-term deal with Maccabi to make his debut in the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague.
"Sandy Cohen is a very talented player whose potential can fit into a high-level team like Maccabi." coach Giannis Sfairopoulos said. "Maccabi has already shown that it wants to work with prospects and give them a chance, so we are very happy that Sandy is joining the club's program."
