Buford fails drugs test
Former Maccabi Tel Aviv guard Rodney Buford failed a drug test after the team's Euroleague game against Zagreb earlier this season, basketball's governing body FIBA yesterday told Buford's current team, Azovmash Mariupol of Ukraine. Buford was released by Maccabi two weeks after the game at the end of November.
Buford has been suspended four times in the past for similar offenses.
Shimon Mizrahi said Maccabi had not been notified and that it was not the team's concern as Buford was no longer a Maccabi player.
