Eurobasket reveals the details behind Mekel's NBA journey - Oct 2, 2012

Cleveland's Omri Casspi is an Israeli pioneer as the first basketball player from his country to become a first-round pick and play in the NBA. Now, Casspi has begun to recruit a few fellow Israelis to join him.

Ex-Wichita State playmaker Gal Mekel entertained several high-level European offers from Israel and Spain before holding a summit with the Cavs' Casspi, his national-team teammate and close friend, before one of Israel's games in Eurobasket qualifying.

Casspi told Mekel that he needed to go to Florida after the Eurobasket campaign to train at the Pro Training Center near Tampa, just as Casspi himself had done early in his pro career.

"Omri called David Thorpe, whom he said was the best coach he had ever trained with, and asked if (Thorpe) would spend two weeks with me", Mekel exclusively told Eurobasket from Tampa, where he is completing his training stint. "Coach Thorpe requested to speak to me first before committing to me, and once we talked I knew it was going to be a great learning experience."

But neither Thorpe, nor Mekel, expected such fast results. Last week, Mekel did so well in an open-gym audition with the Utah Jazz that he was invited to Utahs training camp.

"He's really like a scientist with how he teaches, everything is simple but specific, and I quickly saw results with my game, shooting, dribbling, athleticism, etc.," Mekel said. "When Thorpe told me he thought I was a serious NBA prospect, I was moved and surprised to hear such comments from someone who sees the game like he does," Mekel added.

According to Mekel, Thorpe had begun to speak with a few teams about the 6-foot-4 guard for next season when the Jazz called to invite Mekel in for a look.

That workout turned out to be just the chance Mekel needed to show that his pick-and-roll prowess would adapt well to the NBA. After looking good on a court that also featured the likes of Utah veteran Derrick Favors and NBA veteran point guard Chris Quinn (Agency: Priority Sports), Mekel quickly won over some Jazz officials, including former sharpshooting guard Jeff Hornacek.

But not long after the high of being invited to Jazz camp, which officially began Tuesday, Mekel quickly learned that he would have to turn down the opportunity because he would not be able to secure the required working visa for several days, likely forcing him to miss at least a week of practices.

"Although the lack of an American work permit ruled me out for Utah's training camp, I feel good about my future," Mekel told Eurobasket. "It's very likely I'll play in Europe this year. Armed with all this new knowledge about how I can better my game, my goals are to keep improving my game, help my new team win and be prepared for possibly coming back to the United States next summer for either the NBA summer league or training camp in October."
