In exactly one week, Maccabi Tel Aviv and Lorenzo Braun will be hosted at the Wizink Center, the home hall of Real Madrid, which according to reports in the Spanish media - may also be the center's home hall starting next season.
In recent weeks, it has been reported more than once about the growing interest of the Blancos in the Maccabi Tel Aviv star, and now it seems that even for the heads of the Spanish luxury club, the question marks have been removed and Brown is considered the consensus for the signing window in the summer.
According to publications in Spain, Real is in fact "locked" on Brown (as I recall, he holds Spanish citizenship so that he will not take the place of a foreigner) for next season and is determined to take advantage of the special release clause that supposedly exists in the Maccabi Tel Aviv center's contract, which allows him to move to Spain free of charge at the end the current season.
Real are disappointed with the ability of Sergio Rodriguez and Nigel Williams-Goss, who are unlikely to continue next season.
The preferred candidate for the Blancos to fill the center position was Facundo Camposo, but the Argentine surprisingly chose Red Star Belgrade.
That's why Brown becomes the most attractive option from Real's point of view now.
Maccabi Tel Aviv fans, enjoy him as long as he is here.

"The best alternative to Campaso is Lorenzo Brown. He is the most impressive center among the candidates," they wrote yesterday (Thursday) on the "Defensa Central" website.
"Not only because of his great ability in EuroBasket, but also thanks to his performances in the EuroLeague. His numbers are impressive, and he continues to improve as time goes by. Brown fits Real Madrid perfectly, and his qualities fit the values of the club - sacrifice, leadership, teamwork. He is without The leading candidate from the point of view of the management, which this time will not allow him to slip away."
