Maccabi Tel Aviv fans, you will soon be well: Wade Baldwin has reached an agreement with the club on the extension of his contract.
In recent weeks, talks have been held between the parties, as we also published in Vala!
Maccabi Tel Aviv believed that an agreement would be reached in the end, and the American guard is expected to continue to cooperate with Lorenzo Brown in the future as well.
The official announcement of his signing is expected soon.
Baldwin, who celebrated his 27th birthday yesterday (Wednesday), averaged 17.2 points until tonight's game against Olympia Milano, the fourth highest in the team's 22 years in the Euroleague (after Anthony Parker in 2005, Nikola Vujic in 2003 and Andrew Goodluck in 2017).
He is ranked second in the table of the king of baskets in the factory, ninth in assists (4.7) and seventh in the index (17.1).
Not leaving so soon.

David Blatt, who returned to Maccabi Tel Aviv this season as the chairman of the professional committee, was the coach who landed Baldwin in Europe when he was at Olympiakos, at the start of the 2019/20 season. Then the American moved to Bayern Munich and Baskonia, and Maccabi Tel Aviv will be the first team where he will stay for a second season in a row.
In recent weeks, when the Yellows went on an impressive winning streak that brings them closer to the playoffs, Baldwin became the team's main executor. "Maccabi has the best back line in the Euroleague, it's hard to find anyone better than them," flattered the veteran coach of Virtus Bologna, Sergio Scariolo, yesterday after defeated by the hand of Eliyahu.
The rest of the players followed suit."
