Ticked: Sports Day Events Summary Clip, May 31 (Sports5)
Maccabi Tel Aviv has not yet finished its season in the local framework when it hosts Hapoel Holon tomorrow (Friday, 15:30) for the second game of the play-off semi-final series against Hapoel Holon, but reports from Italy from Matteo Andreni and 'Basket Inside' have linked the yellows to Kevin Panter from Partizan Belgrade.
The Serbian guard has played with Yam Madar this season, and according to the Italian reporter, Željko Obradović is a candidate to leave the team, with Panathinaikos being the team that has made the highest financial offer to Partizan and the player so far. Apart from the Greeks, the Serbs are still trying to keep the talented American, with Maccabi Tel Aviv reportedly also making an offer for Punter.

Panter, 29, started his European career at Lavrio Greek, from where he went on to teams such as AEK Athens, Virtus Bologna, Olympiacos, Red Star Belgrade, Olimpia Milano and in the last two years he played for Partizan Belgrade. In the past year, he averaged 15.5 points per game, 2.4 assists and 2.1 rebounds in the Euroleague, while he was one of the standouts in Belgrade's journey to the playoffs, where they lost 3-2 to Real Madrid, who eventually won the Final Four at the end of a tense series with a huge brawl that began with Sergio Yoi. At the end of the season he was named to the second team of the season in the Euroleague.
