The Sacramento Kings have puzzled many experts with their off-season decisions. The front office have certainly taken a unique approach to team building, yet they remain adamant that there is a plan behind it all. Judging by a rumor reported around the NBA in the past few days, the Kings could be about to make their next move too. Reports suggest the Kings are determined to bring Israeli small forward Omri Casspi back to Sacramento.
Casspi was drafted by the Kings with the 23rd pick in 2009. After just two seasons in Sac Town, the Israeli native was traded to Cleveland along with a first-round pick in exchange for JJ Hickson. Casspi spent two years in Ohio also, before finding himself playing with the Houston Rockets last season.
Casspi has failed to replicate the productivity from his rookie year with the Kings throughout the rest of his career to date. The 26-year-old has some skills, but it’s difficult to tell whether we will ever see the best of them in the NBA. Either way, the next move is vital for Casspi, as if he fails to impress he faces the prospect of becoming a journeyman bench player for years to come.
Let’s take a closer look at his game.
