When Toronto signed Europe's best player--and former Nets draft choice--Anthony Parker Thursday, it left a gaping void in the roster of Maccabi Tel Aviv. Now, it appears that Maccabi, Europe's best team the last five years, wants to replace Parker with another Nets draft choice, Zoran Planinic. For the second time in a week, the 6'-7" guard has been mentioned as Parker's successor. One reason: Maccabi's new coach is Neven Spahija, the former Croatian National Team coach and a big Planinic fan.
