Former Blue Devil Jon Scheyer was officially introduced as the newest member of Maccabi Tel Aviv at a press conference in Tel Aviv, Israel, on Sunday.
Scheyer was joined at the Nokia Arena by co-owners Shimon Mizrahi, David Federman and Oudi Recanati, along with team manaher Gur Shelef and former Maccabi player Tal Brody.
“At Duke, we had a target on our back every day,” Scheyer said. “Expectations are high too. When you lose a game, it’s a big deal at Duke. I think that is very similar to how it is here. I am used to those expectations, and I just want to live up to them.”
Tel Aviv lost just one regular season game last season en route to its 49th league title. The Israel Basketball Super League begins play in the middle of October.
