A new name has emerged in the race to become Israel’s second-ever NBA player alongside Cleveland’s Omri Casspi.
Point guard Gal Mekel impressed the Utah Jazz in a recent audition to such a degree that the Jazz, according to sources close to the situation, have extended an unexpected invitation to training camp to Mekel, who played two seasons at Wichita State from 2006-08.
But sources told ESPN.com that visa complications have made it unlikely that Mekel could be ready to join the Jazz before the end of the coming week at the earliest, by which point he’d have already missed several practices, thus setting him back and complicating any attempt to try to make Utah’s roster.
