Despite a long-time flirt with Real Madrid, Ante Zizic still has more suitors. Maccabi Tel Aviv and the 23-year-old Croatian center are nearing a deal, according to Moshe Barda.

However, according to Eurohoops sources, there’s a verbal deal in place between the player and Real Madrid. It remains to be seen if Zizic will back down from it and sign with Maccabi instead.

The players’ side is claiming that, for a month now, that Real Madrid has been delaying the paperwork and not finalizing the deal.

On the other hand, Maccabi was in contact with Zizic’s side for a long time, even before the COVID-19 pandemic and the young center was one of their prime targets.

Zizic will return to EuroLeague after three years during which he played in the NBA for the Cleveland Cavaliers, logging a total of 121 games. He averaged 7.8 points and 5.4 rebounds in the 2018-19 campaign which was his best in the Cavs jersey.
