Combo guard J'Covan Brown is headed to Israel. The University of Texas product signed with Hapoel Gilboa Galil for the 2017-2018 season. Gilboa Galil, a team in Israel's top division, narrowly missed out on the Winner League playoffs last season, finishing the regular season with a 15-18 record.
The addition of Brown will add depth and experience in the back court - especially given that Brown's last season was similar to Gilboa Galil's. He averaged 11.1 points and 4.4 assists per game in Turkey's top league, as his side also finished ninth and narrowly missed the playoffs with a 15-15 record.
