A israeli center is missing! Award to the finders
As I sure you all know, the jewish people always lack the height and the size.
now days the Israeli bball is desperately need some big guy.
The Israeli C is a rare animal maybe even does not exists in the high/medium levels.
I call for all to keep looking for someone who can take some reb and play inside (someone with the right height) who his happen to be jewish .(or can have an Israeli passport)
this tread will keep following and looking on potential big guys that can maybe be the salvation of the israeli bball.
Players that I will keep following:

adventage: very young and already leading player in the israeli league with the most reb for Israeli.

Thanks for Czarkazem13 for the info.
Aaron Liberman (PF/C 207cm 95kg)
Aaron Liberman is a lengthy post player with long arms and an intriguing upside. He runs well in transition and is active at both ends. He has a nice touch in the paint area and rebounds fairly well in his area. Last year, he didn't plan to play in the post in college because of his weight (now 210 pounds), which didn't allow him to bang down low at that level. So he spent four hours a day during the summer working on his ball handling with a private coach, former Los Angeles Clipper Josh Moore. Due to faith reasons, he is in Israel since September and he is doing some weight training with a coach who was an Olimpic weight lifter in order to get stronger. In USA, while playing for Valley Torah, he has earned interest from Yale, Dartmouth, Boston College and Pepperdine. If he manage to fill out his body in order to play PF in college, I won't be surprise to see better NCAA program recruited him.
After Jake Cohen and Jeremiah Kreisberg, I guess he will be the next american jew to play for Israel U20.
*thanks to serbianhoops for the info
