Okaro White and Maccabi Tel Aviv are close to an agreement, according to Eurohoops sources.

Maccabi and White have also been in negotiations during the summer but they couldn’t reach an agreement and the 26-year-old joined the San Antonio Spurs.

White was waived by the Spurs back in mid-October and the sides reopened the negotiations which seem to be going smoother this time around.

The American forward spent the first two seasons of his professional career in Europe playing for Virtus Bologna and Aris while in NBA, he played 41 games for the Miami Heat. In Greece, he was a part of the best five being the PIR leader and was named the most spectacular as well.

Maccabi didn’t have a very good start in EuroLeague as they hold a 1-6 record but are trying to kickstart things with Giannis Sfairopoulos as the new head coach and the addition of Okaro White.
