Breaking: Lorenzo Brown has extended his contract at Maccabi Tel Aviv | Basketball

The Yellows officially announced the signing of the star for three more years at the Hall, who will remain with the team until at least 2026, this in the shadow of reports of interest from Real Madrid

Maccabi Tel Aviv officially announced today (Thursday) the extension of Lorenzo Brown’s contract for another three years, until 2026, when he will earn $1.5 million per season. The new contract does not have an exit clause at the end of the current season and is a guaranteed contract until the end of 2025, with an option to leave the team for the 2025/26 season.

In recent weeks, there have been reports of Real Madrid’s interest in the 33-year-old star, but now Brown has put an end to the rumors, with a contract extension at the club he joined in the summer.

As you remember, at the end of last June, Brown signed a contract in yellow, after leading the Russian Kazan to a great season in the Euroleague, before the league was stopped. This season in the yellow uniform, Brown made another leap in ability and became one of the best guards outside the NBA. He averages 16.6 points per game in the Euroleague, in addition to 3.2 rebounds and 6.0 assists, this in 31 minutes on average. He is 52.2% on 2, in addition to 34.4% from beyond the arc.

Brown, who won the European Championship last summer in the uniform of the Spanish national team, shone with a number of unforgettable displays including 36 points and 8 assists against Bayern Munich, 22 points and 9 assists against Panathinaikos and 23 points and 7 assists against Red Star Belgrade. In recent weeks he has dealt with an injury, but now he is getting closer to returning to the courts and will try to continue leading his team, in what he hopes will end in getting the ticket to the playoffs.

Also during his career, Brown played in the 2020/21 season for Fenerbahce and in 2019/20 for Red Star. Before that he played for two teams in China and four NBA teams. In 2013 he was drafted with the 52nd pick by Minnesota, where he also delivered his league record season in 2014/15 with 4.2 points and 3.1 assists on average.
