Josh Nebo came to Maccabi in the summer of 2022 after a solid rookie EuroLeague season with Zalgiris Kaunas. He is an athletic and explosive center who dominates the offensive boards and finishes plays with strength at the rim.
Joshua Nebo was born on July 17th, 1997, in Houston, Texas. In his early years he played football, but later focused on basketball and began blossoming in his college years in Pennsylvania after a growth spurt. He went undrafted in 2020 and began his professional career in the holy land.
On July 2020 he was signed by Hapoel Eilat, and immediately made his mark. Apart from his 13.6 points per game on 67% shooting from 2-points range, Nebo led the league with 10 rebounds one average. He also was seventh both in blocks (1.1 per game) and efficiency rating (21.8). The center was selected to the All-League second team.
He caught the eyes of the scouts and made the jump to the EuroLeague in 2021, when Zalgiris Kaunas signed him. In his maiden EL season, Nebo started 17 out of 28 games he played, and contributed 8.8 points (65% from 2-point range) and 6.2 rebounds (6th-best in the league). He also helped Zalgiris to the local cup with 7 points and 5.1 rebounds per game.
