It seems: Thomas and Brown will continue for another season in Jerusalem


Hapoel Jerusalem is on its way to completing the two most important pieces in next season’s puzzle. The sports channel has learned that Tyson Thomas and Jacoben Brown are expected to continue for a third season in a row, after the team’s option on both players is expected to expire in the coming days and the parties have reached an understanding ahead of the 20-21 season. A final decision on the matter of both will be made by Sunday

In the case of Tyson Thomas, the date on which he could have informed the group that he was interested in being released from the contract for $ 50,000 in compensation expired. There are now a few more days for the group itself in which it can decide that it will be released from the contract in exchange for compensation, but as stated this is not planned to happen. Moreover, Thomas may be asked to cut his salary and probably agree to the request.

As for Brown, there has been a great deal of deliberation at the professional level as to whether to continue with him for another season. The team was a little apprehensive about his physical condition, having not played since March. Based on previous seasons, it is clear to the team that he needs close care to maintain a high level of playing fitness. The team’s fitness coach from the capital, Roberto Icy, was in touch with the player throughout the period and made sure he was in reasonable physical condition.

In parallel with the contacts with Brown, in Jerusalem they examined options with additional guards, while at the moment the possibility of attaching one of them at a later stage in the summer is not ruled out. But right now the direction is to continue with Brown, believing he will return to fitness with the help of the fitness coach and thus be able to help the team in the final 8 of the FIBA ​​Champions League, which will take place at the end of September.
