Israeli basketball will have two representatives in the upcoming NBA draft: Apart from Danny Abdia, who is considered one of the top prospects in the round and is expected to be selected very high, Yam Madar will also attend the 2020 draft. Will stand for election. The deadline for removing the name from the draft, by the way, will pass on Monday morning (08:00 Israel time).
Madar’s dilemma was understandable: on the one hand, this year he is only 19, and as we know teams like to choose as young players as possible, what is more the current draft is considered weaker compared to the 2021.1 On the other hand, next year, Madar should be a better and more mature player. But as mentioned – the fact that the next cycle will be more difficult may stand him in good stead.
Tonight, in the shadow of the intention to approach the upcoming draft, Madar provided a mediocre game (like all Hapoel Tel Aviv) in the defeat to Gilboa / Galil. The young guard finished with just 5 points in 28 minutes on the floor that also included 5 turnovers.
Madar is constantly in contact with teams that have shown interest in him, when after Hapoel Tel Aviv’s game against Gilboa / Galil he is expected to hold additional talks that will decide the outcome. Among the interested teams: Chicago (44), Brooklyn (55), Milwaukee (24) , Toronto (59), Boston (47), Charlotte (56), San Antonio (41) and Oklahoma (53).
Madar will of course be the second Israeli in the NBA draft to be held on November 18. Danny Abdia has already secured his place and is set to be selected among the top five places. By the way, a number of promising European players, such as Yorgos Klaitskis and Arenas Valichka, Madar’s peers, have announced that they have withdrawn their name and will try next year.
