Playing career

He is 194 cm (6'4 3/8") tall and he played as a point guard. When he was 9 years old he joined the junior department of Maccabi Tel Aviv. He played for Maccabi Darom (Which was Maccabi Tel Aviv's farm team at the time), Maccabi Ramat Gan, and Hapoel Galil Elyon, before returning in 1995 to Maccabi Tel Aviv to join the senior team. With Macabbi's senior team he won 4 Israeli Championships and 2 Israeli Cups.

He played at the Eurobasket 1997 European Championship with the Israeli national basketball team, scoring 22 points per game during the tournament. He subsequently agreed to play with the New York Knicks, but he never actually played in the NBA because of the 1998-99 NBA season lockout that started on July 1, 1998.

Eventually, he signed a three-year contract with Panathinaikos BC. In the 2000 Euroleague final game he scored 17 points against his former team Maccabi Tel Aviv to win the Euroleague Championship with Panathinaikos. His career ended prematurely a few months later when he suffered a serious knee injury.
