Free-agent forward White likely heading to Israel

Free-agent big man Okaro White spent much of two seasons with the Heat before signing with the Cavaliers in March.

Israeli power Maccabi Tel Aviv is close to adding NBA free-agent big man Okaro White , according to Eurobasket.com.

White, 26, played a combined 41 games for the Miami Heat from 2016-18. He signed the first of two 10-day contracts with the Cleveland Cavaliers in March, but did not appear in a game.

The Cavs waived White in August. He played in all seven games for the Cavs in the Las Vegas summer league, averaging 6.0 points and 7.4 rebounds in 23.9 minutes.

White has also played in the G-League, as well as in Greece and Italy, after going undrafted out of Florida State in 2014.
