Former captive Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit has been named the sports columnist for the Israeli daily Yediot Achronot.

Shalit is a sports fan, particularly of basketball and the Maccabi Tel Aviv team.

His first column is scheduled to appear in the newspaper on Friday. Shalit also reportedly is traveling to the United States to cover the NBA finals between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Miami Heat, which began Tuesday.

Shalit was released last October by Hamas after more than five years of captivity in the Gaza Strip. In February, he traveled to the NBA All-Star Game in Orlando, Fla.
