Former Washington State star Kyle Weaver will continue his basketball career in Israel.

Weaver, who was waived by Oklahoma City on Friday, signed with Maccabi Tel Aviv on Monday. The terms of the contract were not released.

Weaver joins former WSU teammate Derrick Low in the Israeli Super League. Low is under contract with Maccabi Haifa. 

A former second round draft pick by the Charlotte Bobcats, Weaver was traded to Oklahoma City where he spent two seasons. He averaged just 4.9 points and 2.2 rebounds in 68 career NBA games.

UPDATE: It sounds like reports of Weaver heading to Israel were premature.

The Beloit Daily News talked to Weaver on Tuesday. He says he was contacted by Maccabi Tel Aviv, but he hasn't agreed to a contract yet.

"“I did meet with a coach from a team in Israel and he said if I was serious about going there, they would have interest,” he said. “I’m not knocking overseas ball, but once you’ve played in the NBA, you’d like to stay there."
