Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv signed American guard Andrew Wisniewski (28, 1.91 meters) to a one-year contract with an option for an additional year.
Wisniewski, who goes by "the Wiz," will wear jersey number 7.


Wisniewski, who can play both the 1 and 2 positions, loves a fast game and getting his teammates involved in the action.
He has an excellent long shot and makes an impact on rebounds as well.
Last season Wisniewski led Partak St. Petersburg to the semi-finals in the Russian League championships, and averaged 14.4 points, 4.2 assists (fourth in the league), 3.6 rebounds, 1.4 steals and an impressive 60.5% shooting from the field, 42.5% from outside the arc, and 84.9% from the line.


Wisniewski, born and raised in Staten Island, New York, started his European career with the 2004/05 season with Red Star Belgrade.
In 2005/06 he played for Telekom Baskets Bonn and finished his time with the team as the king of baskets in Germany with a 20.6 point average per game.
He started the 2006/07 season with Italian team Snaidero Udine, but played most of the season with Cibona Zagreb.
His averages in the Euroleague were 11.9 points, 2.3 steals, and 1.7 assists per game and his percentages were once again impressive: 71% from two, and 50% from three.
Wisniewski and Cibona won the Croatian championship.


In 2007/08 Wisniewski moved to the Russian League and Ural Great.
His averages there were 15.7 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 4.6 assists (fourth in the league).
The team reached the semi-finals of the playoffs in the Russian League and the quarterfinals of the Eurocup.
Last year, he stayed in Russia but switched to Partak St. Petersburg.


Wisniewski will be starting his sixth season playing in Europe, and he knows all aspects of the competition: Euroleague, Eurocup and the Adriatic League.
