Hapoel Haifa Signs Jervon Pressley
Hapoel Haifa has agreed to a deal with Jervon Pressley, a 6'8 PF/C out of Hampton University, after waiving Kerry Carter earlier in the week. Pressley arrives in Haifa after playing for four teams in four different countries over the course of his two-year career. After spending his rookie season in Germany in Slovakia, he played this year in Finland and Israel.
In Finland, Pressley averaged 12.0 points and 7.5 rebounds per game for Espoo United, and in the Israeli National League, he averaged 7.0 points and 1.8 rebounds per game in five appearances for Elitzur Kiryat Ata. He will be changing teams in Israel this time around, joining a Haifa side that is currently 8-13 in National League play.
