Maccabi got the 98-81 win on Sunday over Ironi for the Israeli Winner League and Elijah Bryant had a great game with 25 points on 9/10 FG.

Those kinds of performances and potential led the Milwaukee Bucks to make him recently an offer, as Bryant’s agent Adam Pensack revealed to Eurohoops.

However, Bryant decided to stay in Israel with Maccabi for the time being, before pursuing the next step in his career and a possible jump to the NBA.

The 25-years old Bryant is averaging 10.2 ppg while shooting 46,7% in threes in the EuroLeague and this kind of accuracy is currently a commodity on both sides of the Atlantic.

Bryant went undrafted in 2018, started his professional career in Israel with Hapoel Eilat, and since 2019 he is a member of the local powerhouse, Maccabi Tel Aviv.
