Alexander is close to finalizing a contract with Maccabi Tel Aviv of Israel, Eurobasket.com reports.
After flaming out with the Bucks after being selected with the eighth overall pick in 2008, Alexander hasn't appeared in the NBA in four seasons. He's currently a member of the Santa Cruz of the D-League, but the imminent deal with Maccabi likley represents a more lucrative opportunity for the forward.

Joe Alexander has signed in China with Liaoning.

Joe Alexander's one-year contract with the Russian team Krasyne Kaylya Samara will not include an out clause to return to the NBA this season.
Alexander has largely been a bust since being selected eighth overall in the 2008 draft by the Milwaukee Bucks. He'll likely attempt to return to the NBA once the labor dispute is resolved, but he's a fringe player who may or may not find his way back into the league. Similarly to Gerald Green, Alexander's athleticism hasn't translated into his finding success.
