Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv signed Elijah Bryant (24, 1.96 m) for two years. He is a swingman (2-3 positions) with great potential in building moves, a good rebounder for his position, a precise player and familiar with life in Israel and Israeli basketball. Last season he played for Hapoel Eilat, which gave in to Maccabi in the Final Four semi-final.

"Another talented player has joined us to help the team reach its goals", said coach Giannis Sfairopoulos to maccabi.co.il. "He is a great scorer with a great personality, he fits exactly in Maccabi’s mentality. Welcome to Maccabi family Elijah Bryant!". 

Elijah Bryant told the official website: "I'm very excited and very grateful to play in such a historic franchise, fans, it's time to get excited - let's do something special".

The addition of Bryant adds a fairly large guard to the back line when it comes to a player who has all the tools to fit into a large system fairly quickly because of the ability to perform actions in the game flow that do not depend on how long he's with the ball. Even when he does not produce something himself, the young American has an excellent timing and finds the way to be at the right time and place. Thus he becomes a player who can score, but without forcing situations.

Recently in the summer league, where he played four games for the Milwaukee Bucks, Elijah Bryant presented his ability to make high quality decisions and select shots at a high level. In one of the games he played as a point guardand and finished with 8 assists, in another game he showed his ability as a scorer with 31 point in 25 minutes vs Minnesota.



Against Maccabi he scored an average of 18.8 points (63% for 2pt and 44% for 3pt) and handed 3.3 assists per evening. During the regular season, his league averages stood at 17.6 points (fourth in the league, 65% 2pt), 5.7 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.4 steals per game on the way to 19.4 PIR. In the playoffs, his numbers were 17 points, 5.6 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.4 points per game. He scored 31 points against Herzliya, grabbed 11 rebounds vs Nahariya, finished with 38 points on a visit to Gilboa-Galil and finished with 4 steals against Jerusalem.

Elijah Bryant grew up in New Hampshire, began playing in high school and began his college period at a small university in North Carolina. He then moved to BYU, a University from Utah, and stood out as a comedian with high shooting percentages, along with a good rebounding ability. He is Mormon, married to Jenelle and his mother is called ... Israel.
