Maccabi Rishon is close to return Darryl Wilson, Danny Lewis is having problems with his release from Russia, Galil looking for a bosman and Ashkelon is unhappy with Weaks.

Maccabi Rishon is close to sign Darryl Wilson, who played for the team two seasons ago and averaged 18.5 points per game. He's supposed to replace the Australian James Harvey, who'll be released anyway soon.

Tal Avriel reports that Danny Lewis is having problems to get the release forms from his Russian team, Lokomotiv Rostov. The Russians want "The Diamond" to stay, and that's the reason the English bosman didn't arrive to Israel already. Haifa BC has already started looking for other alternatives. On Sunday they'll play without a bosman, in a game which will also be a huge test for the unstable Jermaine Boyette.

Galil Elyon is negotiating with a bosman player from Estonia, who plays in the forward positions. The team plays in Europe with two foreign players, but no bosmans, and they are interestead in a bosman addition to their roster.

Reggie Warren is close to be cut from Maccabi Petah-Tikva. The big man averages just 4.8 points and 4.2 rebounds per game, and the team has already started looking for someone to replace him. Warren himself might find himself soon in Hapoel Yarcha from the second league.

Kenyan Wicks, the former leading scorer of the Adriatic league, is averaging only 11.8 points per game so far in Ashkelon, and after his terrible game on Sunday's home loss, he might find himself pretty soon replace by a foreign swingman.
