Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv has announced the renewal of Roman Sorkin's contract until the end of the 2024-25 season. Sorkin had signed a 1+1 deal when he joined Maccabi in the summer of 2021, but his impressive performances have resulted in the 26-year-old forward being rewarded with a new contract.

"I am very happy to sign for two more years at a club that has become my home," Sorkin told Maccabi's official club media. "I feel like we are all one big family. Our mutual objective is to reach our goals and make our fans, who I am so connected to, happy. We have goals and we are just in the middle of the season, and all I want right now is to work towards winning and winning trophies".
This season, Sorkin has taken a big leap under head coach Oded Kattash, seeing his statistics rise across the board. In 2021-22, the Israel international played an average of 8.8 minutes in 22 games, averaging 2.9 points and 1.8 rebounds. So far in 2022-23, Sorkin has appeared in 21 games and averaged 7.0 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 1.0 block in 17.6 minutes on the court.
"Signing Roman Sorkin for two additional years beyond this one serves as a statement of our club's long-term dedication," said club chairman Shimon Mizrahi. "Roman will be one of the team's anchors, and one of our goals is to preserve the current roster and its continuity as much as possible. We are very happy and we congratulate Roman, who is certainly on an upwards trajectory. I am sure he will keep this up."
Sorkin had his best performance to date in Round 21 of this current season, scoring 23 points, grabbing 9 rebounds and finishing with a PIR of 33 against Olympiacos Piraeus. Maccabi will hope that he can continue his progress after penning this new contract.
