JERUSALEM - Israeli basketball champions Maccabi Tel Aviv have signed 28-year-old center Jalen Reynolds in a two-year contract, the Israeli Euroleague club announced Thursday.

In the summer of 2019, Reynolds joined the Zhejiang Lions of the Chinese Basketball Association, where he averaged 13.8 points and 10 rebounds in 25.2 minutes per game.

In December of that year, he joined Maccabi for the first time, as a backup to the injured Tarik Black. In Maccabi, Reynolds averaged 13.9 minutes, 5.7 points and 5.3 rebounds in the Euroleague.

In the summer of 2020 Reynolds joined Bayern Munich, where he averaged 13.6 points and 5.8 rebounds in 21.1 minutes per evening in the Euroleague.

Earlier in his career, Reynolds played at Xavier College and in 2016 he began his European period with Italy's Basket Recanati.

Reynolds later played for Pallacanestro Reggiana, Barcelona and Zenit Saint Petersburg.

"In his second appearance with us Reynolds will play even better and support the team more effectively since he gained more European experience," Maccabi's head coach Ioannis Sfairopoulos said.

"I can't wait to see the arena full of amazing fans. I will bring all my energy and focus to help the team win everything," Reynolds said.
